Noynoy is using close ties to Arroyo as a reason to impeach Gutierrez

Noynoy seems to be going about consolidating power the classical Machiavellian way — eliminating all his enemies. Problem is he is too limp-dicked to do it in the same way real tyrants did and too bratty to do it through the system.

Asked to comment on his imbroglio with Ombudsman Merceditas Gutierrez, President Benigno "Noynoy" Aquino III was reported as saying (English translation follows):
We’re only after the truth. I have difficulty lying. If truth will hurt, I would rather remain silent



Rather than move forward with substance on his side, Aquino prefers the strategy of the infantile: (1) snubbing — like what he did to Chief Justice Renato Corona, and (2) people power 'ocho-ocho' movements such as what he is now trying to incite against Gutierrez.
