On Twitter, Mocha Uson created a poll asking netizens of their bet to replace Judy Taguiwalo as DSWD Secretary following CA’s rejection of her appointment.
Sinong gusto niyo ilagay sa DSWD?
— Mocha Uson Blog (@MochaUson) August 17, 2017
As of this writing, the unanimous choice is VP Leni Robredo, cornering 81% of the votes from the Twitter world.
But on Facebook, it’s a different story!
Blogger RG Nieto aka Thinking Pinoy did a poll similar to Mocha Uson’s poll on Twitter but fellow social media blogger and DSWD Asec. Lorraine Marie Badoy was the runaway winner.
Despite the contrasting result in the survey, Robredo’s supporters like the idea of seeing the VP’s return to the Duterte Cabinet, this time as DSWD Secretary.
Krizette Laureta Chu, a self-confessed Robredo supporter in the 2016 election but also a staunch Duterte supporter says Robredo should never a DSWD Secretary.
Chu cited a litany of reasons, 7 to be exact why Robredo should never get the DSWD portfolio.
Read the post below.
WHY LENI SHOULD NEVER BE DSWD SECRETARY
Dear LP supporters,
Don’t be petty. For the sake of our lives. For your children. For the ekonomiya.
You want Leni Robredo to be DSWD chief?
Leni, seriously? Just because you hate this government, you want a woman who–
1. Didn’t find a way to buy 5 tickets back to the PHILIPPINES when her home province was battered by Typhoon Nina.
(Ergo, no resourcefulness. Resourcefulness is a very very important trait in a DSWD secretary, because many times, especially in situations of grave danger or utmost need, they have to be able to think on their feet. Leni is the kind of person who will blame everything and everyone except herself. No sense of accountability. Go through her interviews. Kasalanan ng lahat, kasalanan ni Marcos. Sya Lang ang wala. Our Lady of Naga.)
2. Claimed the credit for a water truck that was dispensed by the Coca Cola company
(Ergo, credit grabbing. Ergo, egoistic. Both qualities shouldn’t be present in a position that is so service oriented. Can you imagine Leni making everything all about her? How can we know kung nakakatulong nga ang taxes natin kung pati private efforts iclaiclaim. Also: Leni is the kind who thinks organizing thru texting is already enough.)
3. As HUDCC head, couldn’t achieve anything within a six month deadline.
(Ergo, no sense of urgency. Six months, and nothing. You go to Leyte and ask to see any structure she has built during her time as head. Wala. Premium among a DSWD chief’s qualities is being quick on her toes. Urgency. Leni has zero sense of urgency. Tamad, kumbaga. See also: refusing to go home during Typhoon Nina. Sabi pa ni Miranda, “by all means, move at a glacial pace.” Si Leni yon.)
4. Bitches about the President whenever she has a chance.
(Ergo, no sense of teamwork. In any natural disaster, a good DSWD Secretary has to learn to cross partisan lines. You shouldn’t care if a mayor is yellow or red or whatever, you work with them for the benefit of the people.
Mar Roxas and PNOY failed in Leyte because they couldn’t work with a Romualdez. Leni is the same.)
5. Has no nationalistic pride.
(Ergo, pathetic. Remember when she told the UN about “palit ulo?” Apart from the fact that she has no sense of teamwork for the betterment of the PH, Leni has no qualms in insulting her own country for her own personal reasons. Judy has never begged any country for help kahit na ilang unos at lindol ang dumating sa atin. Bet tayo si Leni I exaggerate pa para makahuthot sa ibang bansa because #TRAGEDYislife.
6. Loves the good life too much.
LV. Ferragamo. Travels. Expensive schools. Medyo mahirap ang maluhong DSWD secretary.
7. And most importantliesssst….
SAY GOODBYE TO ANY POSSIBILITY NA PAG BAYARAN NG LP YUNG PAGKAWALA NG YOLANDA FUNDS! SA TINGIN NYO LENI WILL LOOK FOR ACCOUNTABILITY AMONG HER OWN PROTECTORS?
BOOKING LENI ROBREDO after JUDY TAGUIWALO is like watching CYNTHIA PATAG sing right after witnessing LEA SALONGA on BROADWAY.
Eh buti naman kung maglindol at bumagyo kayo lang ang matatamaan di ba? Di pa kayo nakuntento sa Dinky Soliman ninyo.
Let us read the comments below to get sampling of the opinion on social media.
Rica Palomo-Espiritu remarked: “If she really wanted the position herself, she would’ve shown signs and support to the department. Instead, she is at a loss when it comes to looking for issues she can support. In fact, any cause supported by the VP is a kiss of death for that organization.”
Boy Jarlego Garcia wrote: “Whoever is floating the idea that Leni takes the helm at DSWD is a sadist. Let us not inject political considerations here for heavens sake. Dinky’s malperformance has not been erased yet, and you want to revive it?”
Gladys Ann commented: “Nakakatawa ang sinulat mo pero mas nakakasuklam na maging DSWD secretary sya. Yaks!!! No way!”
