P-Noy, as he is known to his constituents with an affinity to him, has just given his first State of the Nation Address yesterday. It was met with various reactions. Some said that his statements where not specific enough to the problems of the Filipino people. But many of his supporters, he has an approval rating of 85 percent as of the last PULSE Asia Survey, say that they were satisfied and give President Noynoy's first SONA a very high rating.
Among those who gave P-Noy's SONA a very high rating and very positive comments where; ex-President Joseph Ejercito Estrada and most of the majority and somewhat suprisingly the minority of the House of Representatives. But, as in all public figures, he still had his detractors. Some political analysts say that Pres. Noynoy should have tackled the Hacienda Luisita case in his SONA.
Most of Pres. Noynoy's statements in his SONA where centered on the blatant corruption of the past Macapagal administration and how it has layed-waste to the funding that his administration would have put to better use. Many agree to this, including most of the Filipino public. But some say that Noynoy should not be an "illusionist" or magician in his manner of serving his presidency. Rallyist's crafted an effigy of him with an uncanny similarity to "Harry Potter". It seems some are still waiting for the "illusion" to become a "reality".
