For all intents and purposes of the benefit of the doubt, Noynoy Aquino is probably a hard worker. He is probably a diligent man. Maybe all these references to him being a lazybones are probably unfair: none of us have been President, so we’re probably judging this whole “Noynoying” thing on the probable idea that this Administration does not want its work being judged in public or made aware by matters of press releases and TV appearances dealing with the working day of the President. Note the word, though: probably.
Now before we call it “rabble-rousing” – as Billy Esposo puts it – let’s look at the whole thing in terms of its merits. Since our politics is characterized by some level of “personal relationship” – i.e., we vote for the President directly – we need to see the President personally when necessary, and we need his personality to be out front and upfront.
