GMA speaking in Tagalog in a presscon in the US?

This morning's news show Gloria Arroyo speaking in Tagalog during their joint press conference with American President George W. Bush. And the host was uneasy as he doesn't understand what his Philippine counterpart is talking about.

Pero bakit nga ba talaga nag-Tagalog si Gloria? Let us count the ways:

  • Mga bobo ang mga Pilipino. Hindi sila marunong umintindi ng Ingles. Kung sabagay, si Lito Lapid nga senador ng Pilipinas, hindi na lang umiimik sa Senado kasi baka mapalaban ng Ingles sa debate.
  • Matatalino ang members ng US at international press. Multi-lingual sila tulad ni Rizal. Pero sabi kung gaano karami ang alam na lenguahe ni Rizal ganun din kadami ang girlfriends niya. Mga chick-boy din kaya ang mga members ng US and international press?
  • Matalino si George Bush. Marunong siyang mag-tagalog. Ganun din kaya karami ang chicks ni George? Mas magaling ba siyang magtago ng chicks sa Oval Office as opposed to Bill Clinton?
  • Me itinatago si Gloria. Kaya nagsalita siya ng tagalog dahil ayaw niyang maintindihan ni George. Baka ang pinagsasabi ng ale ay wala naman sa pinag-usapan nila ng presidente ng Amerika?

nice blog... , haha
It's not that Filipinos are bobo, i do believe that PGMA wanted to speak in the native language because maybe he was trying to win the sympathy of the U.S government, but amidst it all she should not be in the oval office for just a photo op to george bush, which would be leaving in like this June! because its very draconian in the sense that ..., DUH!!!.., she the president.., why leave a dying country for just a photo op.., then being so naive that polls show that she is not being liked by the Filipino people?..,
