Leni didn’t learn from Jesse

Bilang asawa, nabigyan sana si madam Leni ng “singular opportunity” na matutunan mula sa yumaong asawa na si dating DILG Secretary at multi-awarded government official na si Jesse Robredo kung paano magiging mabuting lider.

At isang leksyon na maari niyang matutunan ay “humility” — ang pagpakumbaba. This is the one trait that most people seek in leaders. It is with humility that leaders gain that ability to listen. To feel the pulse of constituents. To be in touch with reality.

Hanggang ngayon hindi pa rin naiintindihan ni madam Leni that she cannot force the people to accept her, to believe in her, to embrace her with love. Everything about her makes her unpalatable to the Filipino people. Apat na taon na siyang naka-upo bilang Vice President, pero she hasn’t learned anything about leadership.

Well, it’s because of her hunger for power. Gusto niya lang talaga ang kapangyarihan. She wants the Liberal Party to get back in power. She wants to claim the prize of the presidency as a reward for the martyrdom of Jesse at the altar of the Liberal Party corruption. Tinanggap niya ang kamatayan ni Jesse upang makamit ang kanyang ambisyon na maging Pangulo ng Pilipinas.

It’s time you realize you’re not your husband, madam Leni. You cannot be a Cory to the slain Ninoy. Filipinos will not allow a puppet like you to be their President.
