the oddity of SONA

It was my first time to watch and really listened to GMA's SONA. I hate to criticize for no governance is ever prefect. However, as I listened to GMA's eloquent yet boastful speech, I took me moments of reflection. Had I only known what she was talking, I could have been one from the audience adding to the applause. BUT her speech can't ever define why people have to march and rally from time to time only to have her stepped out from the position.

SONAs always seem boastful---it's the president's chance to show what achievements have been made.Honestly, I like listening to SONA not because I'm a blind, gullible person, but because I choose to look on the positive side, always. I see some little triumphs in a sea of failure and controversy---that's good for me. Like what you said, no government is perfect. It's in our nature to criticize and overlook the good things. But if only we would look, we would have better understanding of what we need to work on so that our country would progress.

SONA's or State of the Union Address (as they are called here) hopefully will have good information for the people. Of course it is a self-selected newsreel, but even a president should take a chpaance to promote their accomplishments.

Everyone else is available to criticize...
