‘I have the right to criticize the government.’ [Link here]
This is VP Leni Robredo’s defense to criticism that all she does is criticize the government. Because of this, she has been met with more criticism from the DDS microbloggers.
On Facebook, radio host Mark Lopez shared what he discovered when he did a Google search of Robredo’s habit of questioning every government move or policy.
‘Nakita ko ung post ni Reyna Elena aka Edwin Jamora patungkol sa hilig ni Leni Robredo na mag question sa lahat ng ginagawa ng gobyerno. Alam nyo, isang bagsak na Google keywords eh ayan ang mga lumabas.Ibang klase itong politiko na ito. People of the Philippines, may I present to you the Questionable Vice President, Maria Leonor Gerona Robredo.Puro question, pero sya naman ay walang mahusay na answer. Matinde.’
Turned out, Lopez was simply taking a page from another pro-Duterte blogger, Edwin Jamora, who was the first to make his observation of Robredo’s hobby public.
Another pro-Duterte microblogger, Atty. Tom Berenguer, being trained in law school to use the statements of the adversary to win cases, lustily use Robredo’s argument to turn the heat up against the Vice President.
On Facebook, Atty. Berenguer wrote:
‘As a taxpayer, I am not paying your salary for you to ask questions. I am paying you to find answers.I don’t even have to pay anyone to ask questions which are not even half as stupid as those you ask.’
The FB post of fellow pro-Duterte microbloggers inspired former La Salle Professor and now a visiting professor in a South Korean University to call on fellow Filipino taxpayers to send a message to Leni Robredo and cohorts that the public need not pay for their salary just to question the government but to find solutions to the problems of the country.
Because if Robredo and cohorts think that their job is just to ask questions, Ybiernas remarked that the public can do their job and the need to pay for high salaries is unnecessary.
Ybiernas ended the brief FB post by saying that if Leni Robredo and company know only how to ask questions, they better resign from their post so that the public can replace them with someone who knows how to find solutions to the problems of the country.

Hiniram ko nang walang paalam kay Mark Lopez yung larawan. hahaha.
Hiniram ko ito nang walang paalam —dahil sa inspirasyon ng post ni Atty. Tom Berenguer— para sabihin at hikayatin ang mga kapwa ko mamamayan ng Pilipinas na sabihin na:Bilang taxpayer, hindi ako/kami/tayo nagpapasahod ng mga matataas na opisyal ng pamahalaan para magtanong o tanungin ang pamahalaan.
Nagpapasahod ako/kami/tayo ng mga matataas na opisyal ng pamahalaan para solusyunan ang mga problema ng bansa.
Kasi kung magtatanong at magtatanong rin lang, kayang-kaya ko/namin/natin gawin yan at hindi na kailangan pa magpasahod ng mga matataas na opisyal ng pamahalaan para dyan.
Kung ang kaya lang pala gawin ng mga matataas na opisyal ng pamahalaan ay magtanong, aba’y MAGRESIGN (KA) NA (KAYO)!Para mapalitan ka(yo) ng hindi mahilig magtanong pero marunong sumulusyon sa mga problema ng bansa.
