Binay shows hypocrisy in criticizing the Aquino administration

Vice President Jejomar Binay always tries to sell himself – his persona and his leadership style – every time he sees an opportunity to do it.

Since he has declared his candidacy for president in 2016, any event where he is invited to speak is always a welcomed opportunity to show-case his worth.

The problem however is that Binay does this at the expense of the failings of the Aquino administration.

Take for instance the speech Binay made on Black Saturday, April 4, at the Shine Philippines Leadership Conference held at the Quezon Convention Center, where he said: “Today, in all humility and candor, as the mayor of Makati, and now as the Vice President of this country, in the housing and the OFW sector, the answer is yes, we have served the less privileged in society. And yet on a national level, there remains much to be done for those who have less.”

If this is not a self-serving statement, I don’t know what is.

What makes it even more egotistical is that Binay quoted several times from Robert K. Greenleaf’s The Servant Leader to differentiate between leaders who “led to lead” and those who “serve first, then lead.”

Of course Binay was referring to himself as belonging to the latter qualification and short of saying that he personifies the “servant leader” that the country needs so that the poor and the underprivileged in our society will not be left behind as they are today.

“While our macro-economic indicators are stellar, and while at its onset, this administration enjoyed a spring of political stability, the truth is a big chunk of our people continue to be poor,” Binay said.

I am not saying that there is no truth to what Binay is saying, but if he thinks that what President Benigno Aquino (PNoy) is doing is against his principle and belief, then why stay any minute longer in PNoy’s cabinet?

Wouldn’t it be more proper, dignified and credible of Binay if he cut ties with PNoy rather than stay for political expediency heading the government’s housing and overseas Filipino workers portfolio, which are all vote-generating sectors?

As if it is not enough that Binay is facing charges of corrupt practices, which he has still to refute and clear his name, now he is also showing hypocrisy at the highest level.

On the other hand, why can’t PNoy let go of Binay if the latter does not conform to his leadership style and continues to criticize his administration?

That is how the dirty game of politics is played by our two top leaders.

It all boils down to political exploitation for political convenience down the road – wherever it leads to.

    Binay is testing the political waters. If his self-serving remarks against the administration will cause many heads to nod, it will be a signal that it is okey for him to finally wean himself from the “cuddling” of Aquino….if the reaction is negative, that means, he should shamelessly continue playing charade….what a shame!

      Indeed, what a shame. But what is even more shameful is how he gets to continue leading in the surveys despite political warts and all!

ITO ANG IMAHEN NG BANGKAY NI HESUS SA QUIAPO, AT ANG TAWAG NG MGA DEBOTO AY SANTO SEPULKRO….PERO KUNG SABIHIN NIYANG GUSTO NA NIYANG MAGPAHINGA AT HUMIGA, OKEY LANG!
