Amando Doronila wrote on the Lost 100 days in ad hoc Presidency:
This report tends to reinforce the growing public perception that the Aquino administration is a lazy presidency that loathes hard and sustained planning aimed at delivering results rather than platitudes that are easy to mouth.
To be specific, can anyone cite any legislation ever initiated during the first 100 days that sought to translate into action the wishes of Mr. Aquino and to demonstrate its administrative competence to manage the economy?
What has been demonstrated so far is that the administration has been found inept in responding to crisis arising from emergencies related to law and order and security. It has proved to be an administration stumbling into ad hoc responses to emergency situations.
Despite the setbacks suffered by the administration in its handling of the Aug. 23 hostage-taking crisis, the President’s popularity has not been seriously dented, and no one has accused him of having engaged in corrupt transactions.
What Amando Doronila is saying is this: the glass is half empty.
