AS I WRECK THIS CHAIR
By William M. Esposo | The Philippine Star
This most feared scenario of GMA continuing to rule after June 30, 2010 is viewed by your Chair Wrecker as the least likely scenario. Let’s not even go to a head count of the AFP officers who will follow GMA. Let’s go and review if even her top political operators — Ronnie Puno first and foremost of them – would be willing to take big risks for her. How about Bert Gonzales and Leandro Mendoza? Will they take big risks for GMA?
They used to suppress dissent by citing “protecting the duly constituted authority” as their official cover. They can no longer apply that official cover to extend GMA’s term. In their hearts and minds, they know what can be done at this stage and what acts are considered sheer madness, if not suicidal.
Take the case of Ronnie Puno. Ronnie is a survivor with a talent for reinventing himself to be useful in new conditions. From his role during the Marcos regime, Ronnie has reinvented himself during the terms of Fidel Ramos, Joseph Estrada and GMA. Don’t be surprised if Ronnie has already started the process of reinventing himself in the new administration.
