"Escudero scored Energy Secretary Angelo Reyes for the proposal saying this move is a lame excuse to cover up the fact that the government’s energy officials have erred in their projection of power generation."Escudero, in the same statement, also chided the government when he said:
“An effective and competent government should have been by now equipped with comprehensive energy plan or road map at the very least to avoid going to the extreme which is always a burden that ordinary people suffer”
Now, under the administration of Penoy Aquino the Turd, the power crisis in Mindanao has worsened, and while the energy officials of this administration remain clueless as to what to do, here comes the Yellow President's allies in Congress, all wanting to give Penoy emergency powers, the same powers PGMA was then asking for but was denied, to address the power crisis. And Lo and Behold, among those who want to give him mergency powers is no less than ass-kisser-in-chief Chiz Escudero, who said:
“I am willing to give the President more than emergency powers, given the gravity of the present situation. He should be granted standby power in case of extraordinary situations that he can exercise at his sound discretion without having to run to Congress every now and then and wait for its imprimatur” [source: The Daily Tribune]
Ano nga ba yung kasabihan? Sauce for the goose is also sauce for the gander. So, as a challenge to Chiz and his ovrlord Penoy, I would like to throw back to their faces what they said when the past administration was asking for emergency powers, and I do hope they choke on it:
“An effective and competent government should have been by now equipped with comprehensive energy plan or road map at the very least to avoid going to the extreme which is always a burden that ordinary people suffer"
Hear that, Chiz and Penoy? You both knew, when you denied Gloria emergency powers, that this power crisis in Mindanao will worsen and hound the next administration after GMA, so you have no one to blame but yourselves. YOU ARE SELFISH, ARROGANT BIGOTS WHO WERE GIVEN THE CHANCE TO DO SOMETHING GOOD FOR THE COUNTRY IN 2010 BUT YOU HAD TO LET POLITICS GET IN THE WAY OF PUBLIC SERVICE. THIS PROBLEM, DEAR SIRS, ARE OF YOUR OWN MAKING. YOU HAVE NO ONE TO BLAME BUT YOURSELVES.
