He thinks "Ang Kapatiran" will make a good "Opposition" party vs the evil Arroyo.
I don't know about that. Are they really opposed to Arroyo? if you read Martin Bautista's blogs, he avoids talking about ARroyo's Garci/legitimacy issue (not once did he call for arroyo's resignation). Actually, he avoids the arroyo issue in his blog as much as possible. I guess he doesn't see Maam as a problem. And not once did he address the issue of extrajudicial killings OR even the arrest of Satur in his blogs (nung in-arresto siya). Ganyan rin ang stance ng ibang Kapatiran partymates nya. tahimik lang sila dito. At least the opposition protested the arrest of satur and the assassinations of leftists.
I guess in CDQ's book, that makes Ang Kapatiran = "Opposition".
And his answer to my Arroyo question on whether she should resign was pretty disappointing. Nawalan na ako ng gana sa kanila after that. Para silang CBCP, unwilling to take a tough stand on Arroyo (unlike before). I kept the disappointment to myself, but i never blogged with much enthusiasm re Ang Kapatiran after that.
Even bautista-booster Baycas (the guy who asked me to support doc martin) was disappointed himself.
Anyway, I don't think CDQ is really that familiar with the Ang Kapatiran.
If you want to blame somebody on why the Oppo fragmented, blame the guy who pushed for collaboration with the Administration.
