huwag tayo magalit kay cory for apologizing to erap about edsa dos just because we don’t like erap and/orwe’re convinced he deserved to be impeached.
knowing now what we didn’t know then about how pgma and fgma plotted with the generals to unseat erap long long before chavit singson blew the whistle, and seeing more clearly now how the davide supreme court turned a blind eye to the constitution and collaborated instead with the opposition to install gma, i say cory’s right to regret edsa dos and she does not deserve the kneejerk brickbats, least of all from the dick with a moist moist eye on the presidency.
what if, instead of calling for erap’s ouster when we went to edsa, we called instead for davide to order the prosecutors back and proceed with the impeachment trial? sure, erap might have been acquitted, but gma wouldn’t have had to cheat in 2004.
or what if we called instead for gloria arroyo to accept erap’s invitation to a council that would oversee the economy? or what if we called instead for both erap and gloria to make way for a snap election, as both senators enrile and roco preferred?
we had all sorts of options then but we were adolescently fixated on doing an edsa a la 1986 when the real challenge is to do better than, or to improve on, the original.
