They are just wasting their time. The Senate will not agree to Charter Change initiated by the Arroyo administration. They won't find any Malacanang lapdogs in the Senate who are willing to jump and bark just to please the masters by the Pasig River.
With elections just a few months away, now is not the time--and, more significantly, Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo is not the leader we can trust to push for Charter Change.
The Arroyo administration, now on its way out the door, cannot be trusted to amend the Constitution with the nation's interest in mind.
Sarili lang nilang interes at kapakanan ang isinusulong nila sa mungkahing ito. Walang mapapalang mabuti ang mga mamamayan sa walang kwentang Cha-Cha ni Gloria.
