Now that US is facing financial crisis, this is the time that the word leaders show their support and concern. As the old saying goes… in times of troubles, you will know your real friend is.

Yes, Indeed! Gloria Arroyo, Will kiss anybody ass if she knows she can used them. Especially money! She even sold every filipino soul to the highest bidder because of money! This is one of the reason why she's doing everything in her power to contact President elect Barrack Obama, Because of foreign aids! I hope the united states of America is not going to give the Philippines anymore money. After all money is the only thing that this FAKE PRESIDENT AFTER. The American government should take care of their own people first before start given more aid to other country like Philippines. If they do they'll well find out who's their real friend are. I'll bet you when that happen Gloria Arroyo, Well be kissing more chinese ass!

The Philippines can expect a special relationship with the US when Satan skates to work... Unless an ocean of oil miraculously appears under the archipelago there's no reason for the Pinoy to have any hope. Keep dreaming...

Most of the Filipinos I know said they wouldn't vote for him--simply because he is Black! They are very racist and should be ashamed of themselves. They may be US citizens, but they are certainly NOT true Americans!!
Obama has a lot to deal with, and the most important thing is getting the US economy back on track and creating jobs for Americans!
NOT retrogression, NOT importing all the millions of nurses that the Philippines manufactures every year. Getting AMERICANS back to work!
What we don't need is poor countries like the Philippines begging for a hand-out. We need to focus on what is best for Americans, and the Philippines isn't even on our radar these days.
So, tell Gloria to stop being so lazy and corrupt and start fixing her own problems.
Please read this biased association opinion of Obama he claims to have brought so many to vote for Obama. What a disgrace to bayabaakans

Most of the people who voted for him didn't know what the hell they're doing. They're bleended with his "CHANGE WE NEED" What change is he talking about. His talking shit. For one he was saying all American's who's making $250,000. Annually is not going to pay taxes. I jump with joy! Because I'm one of those people who's in that catagory. But, We forgot one thing where is he going to get the money on all his agenda, If his not going to raise income taxes. I'll say, His full of shit. His not in the office yet his already talking about raising income taxes,....Sales taxes, Among other thing!

I didn't vote for him because his black. The color of his skin don't have nothing to do with it. But, Black people voted for him because his black not because on what he can do. I just don't believe his bullshit his feeding the American people, PERIOD. He keep saying "CHANGE WE NEED" What change is he talking about. Change for the better or change for worse!

Barrack Obama, Was saying 95% of American people making $250,000. Annually is not going to pay taxes. If thats the case where the hell is he going to get the money for his agenda if only 5% of American people be paying taxes. I'll bet you, As soon as he sit in the white house his going to raise income taxes, Sales taxes among other thing. Duh....! Can he count? He sounded just like THE FAKE PRESIDENT OF CEBU GLORIA ARROYO. Lying to their teeth. They should meet and start talking their bullshit. Anyway he got four years to probe to the American people on what he can do.

Why are these two Filipino citizens harrassed by hate mail and death threats?

Is the Philippines a democratic country?

See for yourselves.
