President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo’s challenge to her
opponents to bring their charges against her to the “proper” forum is
turning out to be a trap as the impeachment complaint filed against her is
daily being met with delaying tactics, alleged bribery of solons and
witnesses, suppression of evidence, and cover-ups. Whenever an obstacle
appears to have been surmounted, another block stands in the way of the
impeachment complaint. Arroyo urges her opponents to bring their issues
against her to the “proper” forum as a way of luring the people away from
the parliament of the streets, but with the way the impeachment complaint
is faring she is driving her foes to where she doesn’t want them to be in
the first place.
Salungguhit literally means to
underline; figuratively, to
underscore or highlight.
