P-Noy’s Inaugural SpeechJuly 1, 2010
I will go off tangent from my usual topics by posting here the link to the 15th President of the Philippines’ Noy-Noy’s [Benigno Simeon C. Aquino III] speech which was delivered yesterday, June 30, 2010 at the Luneta Grandstand. It was reported that nine drafts were made before it was actually finalized by NoyNoy.

It is interesting to note however, the observations made by Mr. Armando Doronila of PDI re Noy’s speech:
Critics (including those from media) have been quick to note that Mr. Aquino’s well-applauded inaugural address glossed over the huge fiscal deficit, easily the most serious financial and economic problem confronting his administration.
The speech emphasized the new administration’s defining principle as embodied in the theme that “if no one is corrupt, no one will be poor.”
Mr. Aquino said this principle would serve as “the foundation of our administration.” He pledged, “Our foremost duty is to lift the nation from poverty through honest and effective governance.”
The speech, however, was lacking in specific measures on how to achieve this goal. For the complete article, please click the link below
