Mar Roxas: New tough-talking Oppositionist

It took the President, Gloria Macapagal Arroyo several weeks before she decided to dramatize her very famous “I am sorry” line. Her apologies came after the heated issues on “Hello Garci”. GMA said sorry for calling a COMELEC officials during elections.

It took former Senator Tessie Aquino-Oreta years before she publicly apologize for being caught in the camera doing a jig (dancing) during the impeachment trial of former president Joseph Estrada. People was offended by the dancing moves of the former senator.

Mar Roxas: new political tough guy?

Here comes Sen. Mar Roxas who was quoted by saying, I am not sorry. I am not sorry for speaking my mind and telling the truth as I see it. I am not sorry for expressing my real feelings and my rage in behalf of the people I love whom I love.

Mar Roxas determined to stand on what he said during the Makati rally. At the Senate Mar Roxas delivered a privilege speech saying he would never apologize for his expletive-laced speech during the rally.

In his column, Jojo Robles of the Manila Standard, asked: Why should he, when he’s trying really hard to remake himself into a tough-talking oppositionist who is always ready to attack the Arroyo administration— with foul language, if necessary?

But Roxas claimed that he just said what he felt and he was not hyprocrite. But did he really need to say foul-language? Some things are not necessary. He can still be tough without saying bad words.

Now, Mar Roxas is one of those tough guys against the Arroyo presidency. He is earning admiration for that while losing some respect.

  1. Nothing new from these politicians..:(
    They just want to get noticed by some of our fellow Filipinos and the best thing that they can do now is talked a lot as if they really care for us.

    Maybe Mar Roxas is planning for a higher position in the future and so he believes that it will make him more appealing to the public.

    I might be wrong but that’s how i see it. 🙂
    Nice blog!

  2. Mar Roxas does not deserve to be president!!!Using cuss words does not improve the content, or lack of it,of his speech. His fiery speech reminded me of Marcos in 1964 who promised to make this nation great again. Too much politics has brought this country to the miserable state it is now in. What we need is someone who can get jobs for the unemployed, food to the table, education, housing and better health services to most of our countrymen here and abroad. Not another brat scion from the landed gentry…

  3. Marimar seems to be so clean,feminine on the outside but full of vile and venom in the inside! Since he is showing poorly in both SWS and Pulse Asia surveys , the Liberal party is divided into two factions, he thought he might grabbed attention and sympathy from the crowd, but he did not, he endeared himself to the canto boys, but I doubt if he appealed to the more decent elements of society ! Tsk tsk tsk

  4. While the word OPPOSITION still used as the brand of politicians against the government, this country can’t move on. They are economic beetles of the country.

    I prefer to hear FISCALIZER like Congressman LOCSIN, Sen. Gordon, Sen. Angara, and the like.

    Mar Roxas, Panfilo Lacson, Peter Cayetano, Junggoy Estrada, Kiko Pangilinan, Madrigal, Legarda and the like contributed much to the distractions of philippine economy. Why not make good suggestions to the president instead of making chaos like fabricated Lozada drama, interfaith rally unethical speeches, conducting overacting investigation and financing protest rallies of leftist.

    I like the plan of commissioner Sarmiento that Presidentiable candidate should undergo flatform debate so Filipino can select and elect better president. Tingnan ko lang kung tatakbo pa ang mga mangmang sa pagka presidente.
