Susan Roces And the SWS Survey on Gloriagate

After Susan Roces’ strongly worded statement in Club Filipino last June 29, anti-Arroyo protests intensified. It looks like the Resign-Impeach-Oust Arroyo forces have found an inspiration in the widow of the late Fernando Poe Jr.

The words that an angry Susan Roces used to describe Mrs. Arroyo could very well be the same words street protesters utter: “Arogante siya. Arogante! Hindi niya isinaalang-alang ang damdamin ng nakararami. Manhid!”

Roces lamented the Supreme Court’s refusal for her to replace FPJ as petitioner in his election protest and decried the imposition of the expanded value added tax (which the Supreme Court suspended yesterday). She also rejected Arroyo’s public apology and accused her of cheating in the 2004 elections.

Roces’sentiments with regard to the issue of cheating apparently echo the pulse of the people. A very recent SWS telephone survey revealed that of 526 respondents, 59% said she cheated while 29% said she was protecting her votes. She also got a low trust rating of -31. In her speech, Roces said Arroyo already lost the people’s trust.

However, only 18% agreed with Roces’ call for Arroyo to step down. Twenty-eight percent want to “find the truth,” while 20% agreed with Arroyo’s call to close this chapter of our history. This probably explains why, despite the increased intensity, the mass protests haven’t produced wam bodies enough to stage another Poeple–err-People Power.

It would be interesting if SWS would include Susan Roces in one of its future survey. Although the answers seems obviuos, I’d still like to validate, though polls, who among these two ladies have the people’s trust.

  3. Actually the initial reaction of many to Roces’ statement was “No, hindi kapatid! Asawa!” But then, I’m others thought: “Magkapatid sina Gloria at Erap?” 😉

  4. kapal ng mukha nya, kapal ng apog, walang delicadeza, kababaing taong presidente ganun ang ugali?!!!

  5. Susan made her point. Gloria did made a mistake which is not easily digested by some others specially by the opposition. To call for Gloria’s resignation isn’t the solutioon. This is just a matter of political vengeance. We shouldn’t gamble for something we’re not that sure of…
    Let’s not be fond of having EDSA’s it isn’t noble anymore… IM JUST THINKION ALOUD…..

  7. seeing PGMA confess and say sorry (may it be sincere or not), I was quite impressed, for if I was her I wouldn’t have done that, or if I did, I would have resigned and comitted a harakiri afterwards. and I think the Filipino people have found a real good artist to represent their cries through Susan Roces, who said that PGMA is arrogant. well then, if PGMA is an arrogant president, Susan Roces is an arrogant widow.well i’ve seen too much arrogance in her ambitious speech. you see I’m not PRO-GMA or PRO-FPJ/SUSAN, I’m merely a spectator who isn’t amused with all these!

  8. ang tao binigyan lamang ng tamang pag-iisip ng Dyos para makgawa ng kabutihan sa kapwa….. And demonyo nag-udyok sa tao, nag bigay dagdag talino para maka-isa sa tao….. Kaya ang dyos, nagbigay ng pag-ibig para makaunawa sa mga nang yayari….. kung papabayaan natin na maloko tayo, sayang naman ang binigay sa atin na karunungan……kung may likas kang talino… di na kailangan pigain ang iq mo, makukuntento ka na la bang sa sorry?

  9. Mag-kapatid si GMA at FIRST GENTLEMAN ARROYO??!! ayon kay Susan Roces,”ANG SINUNGALING AY KAPATID NG MAGNANAKAW!!!! Susan has a point, She’s right!!! its about the Garci tape issue and the jueteng issue.

  10. ako? kasasabi ko NGA lang sa isang article d2 na “ang kasalanAN-(*hihi:) na typograph error.. churii!!)..ay may katapat na parusa/karma..”

    ::: Tama yon,..kung may likas na talino, di na kylangang pigain ang IQ/EQ,..dapat lang gamitin sa tama at mabuting paraan.. NA MAY PRINSIPYO AT “WALANG PINAPANIGAN”.

  11. para syang tanga. galit na galit. emotions like that should not have space for public display. wala na talagang syang pag-asa. it all started with what had she done with karen davila. aba. if you plan to court our sentiments, you must learn diplomatese. rage produces nothing

  12. hi kristian marquez…….rage produces many thing…… it was rage that brought wars….. it was rage that made people power 1 possible…… it is a strong emotion as such… it forms one of the forces that make us survive life.. a basic instinct…… instinct to fight for what is true….. to look for the truth.

  13. Ang awit na ito ay handog mula sa kaibuturan ng aking puso para sa mga puliticong pinoy at mga kawani ng pamahalaan na walang pakundangan sa mga mamayan; mga sinungaling; mandarambong; mandaraya; manloloko; mapagsamantala sa kapwa; mga makakapal ang apog.

    Magsisi kayo at magtika hanggat may panahon pa. Gayon din kumilos ng sapat at naayon sa inyong mga kasalanan sapagkat di maglalaon ay sisingilin kayo ng Lumikha hanggang ang pagdurusa ay madama ng inyong sariling lahi.
