Get to know your new Senate President

Posted on: November 17, 2008

After the controversial double-something-something that happened in the Senate, Senator Manny Villar has finally resigned his post. According to him, he has lost the support of the majority of the senate. (Full story can be seen here.)  He has been replaced by Senator Juan Ponce Enrile.

Enrile is an ingenius guy. He’s one of the more colorful characters in the political arena. Very clever person. Let’s see how he runs the Senate.

Politics is interesting. The loyalties straddle. Taking sides seem to be a blur. It’s like a telenovela, without anybody visibly directing it. Sometimes, it’s even more exciting than those shows. You get to learn a lot. But like the TV shows, there’s a saturation point. “We’ve heard that before”. And the sad part is, nothing really gets to be resolved.

My dad likes Enrile very much. I think he voted for him last time he run for president. He’s fine with me up until the time I learned that he most likely have Alfie Anido a.k.a. 80’s major hottie killed. He died at the age of 21. 😦 Rumors/popular theories say that Enrile didn’t like his daughter having romantic relationship with the cutie. So he had him killed. :O

Haha. The things dads will do. Kawawa naman si daughter, isipin mo yun, tragic masyado ang love story.

Enrile’s been here since Marcos, right? Who’s to say he isn’t the ring leader here? Manipulating everyone while staying hidden in the shadows. Hahaha. Conspiracy theories, FTW.

I don’t know what he’s up to. When he went back to the Senate, I felt he was not really going to do anything, parang lie low na lang. But now that he’s the Senate President, things got a little spiced up.
