When asked why debates are important?
Leni Robredo replied that one of the characters of leadership is showing up in the most difficult times. If you (taking swipe at BBM) don’t show up in the most difficult times, like debates, you are not a leader. The FB page VOVph wrote this caption on FB when sharing Robredo’s quote card from Manila Bulletin: Leadership times 2.. Debate is difficult time.
VOVph’s FB post elicited laughs from its followers. Of the 1,430 reactors, 1,400 netizens hit the laugh emoji, a strong indicator that Robredo is not taken seriously among netizens.
One netizen defined to Leni Robredo the meaning of leadership based on his understanding and personal knowledge.
Leadership is the capacity to influence others through inspiration motivated by passion, generated by vision, produced by a conviction, ignited by a purpose. That’s leadership. Leni Robredo
Another netizen laughed at Robredo’s assertion that a debate is already difficult times for a leader. The netizen added that a true debate is when the issue is thrown at them on the spot. That’s the time she will defend or make a follow up answer to the previous answer.
Difficult times na pala ang tawag sa Debate. Hahaha. Hindi naman debate yan eh, parang assignment lang na ipapasa ang sagot after a week. Ang totoong debate, on the spot na ibabato sayo ang issue…saka mo depensahan o segundahan..
This netizen teased Robredo to try answering the question of Prof. Claros because she will indeed have a difficult time.
Try the question of professor Claros s im sure you’ll be in difficult time..
Another netizen asked Robredo with regards to her non-showing in SMNI debate? The netizen believed the CNN debate is not a debate.
Bkt wala ka sa SMNI debate, Leni? Absent ka di ba? CNN debate is not a debate at all.
But one netizen was spot on by pointing out that if indeed Robredo believed what she was saying that showing up in difficult times like in debates is one of the characters of a leader, why didn’t she show up at the SMNI debate? The netizen said he would have believed Robredo if she showed up at the SMNI debate.
So ang debate difficult time for you kaya andyan ka pero kung pumonta ka dn sa SMNI baka maniwala pa ako sayo
