T he Washington Post publishes The Daybook, which chronicles the President of the United States (POTUS) Events. For today, July 30, 2009, The Daybook shows that President Barack H. Obama will meet with President Gloria M. Arroyo at the Oval Office at 3:00 p.m. but he will have another meeting at 4:00 p.m. Presidents Obama and Arroyo will, therefore, meet for less-than an hour. Much as she wanted to be respected by American leaders, Gloria Arroyo is failing miserably. Instead of a State Visit or even an Official Visit, Mrs. Arroyo settled for less-than hour of a meeting and photo opportunity with President Obama. Perhaps, the White House will treat her to coffee or tea or soda but certainly not for lunch or dinner. Perhaps, the Philippine Embassy can still throw a reception for President Arroyo and her huge entourage at the nearest “In-N-Out” burger stand. She deserves to be known in the dustbin of Philippine-United States Relations as the first President of the Republic of the Philippines to be treated like dirt by the White House.

By Sarah Lovenheim

 

President Obama meets with his senior advisers at 10:30 a.m., following his routine briefings. At 3:00 p.m., he meets with President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo of the Phillipines in the Oval Office. An hour later, Obama sits down with Treasury secretary Timothy Geithner and Vice President Biden.

White House press secretary Robert Gibbs holds the daily press briefing at 1:15 p.m.

M rs. Arroyo will follow in the footsteps of her father, President Diosdado Macapagal, who was virtually ignored by the American policy-and-decision makers. Reports said that President Macapagal wanted also to address a Joint Session of the United States Congress that his predecessor, Carlos Garcia, had. But the United States Congress did not invite President Macapagal to do so. According to unofficial reports, President Macapagal moved to have the commemoration of Philippine Independence transferred from July 4th to June 12th, so as to retaliate against the Americans for the perceived insult to him.

 

President Garcia was the first of only three Philippine Presidents to address a Joint Session of the United States Congress on June 18, 1958. President Ferdinand E. Marcos did address the U. S. Congress in its Joint Session on Sept. 15, 1966. Then President Corazon Cojuangco-Aquino addressed the United States Congress on Sept. 18, 1986.

 

The complete record of the Joint Sessions of the United States Congress can be read by clicking on this hyperlink:

T he lame-duck President Arroyo will never have the opportunity and honor of addressing a Joint Session of the United States Congress. Like father, like daughter. # # #

I WILL PRAY THAT SHE WILL GET OUT OF HER OFFICE AS PRESIDENT THE LEGAL WAY & NOT FORCE HERSELF FOR SOME MORE YEARS IN PHIL. POLITICS.

SHE HAS THE SMELL OF POLITICAL DEATH TO ANY LEADER WHO IDENTIFIES WITH HER. THEY MAY GET SOME PUBLIC FUNDS FROM HER BUT NOT THEIR PERSONAL COOPERATION.

SHE HAS BEEN AN EMBARRASSMENT TO ALL OF US.

Emergency Relief, ( Philippines )

Magandang Hapon po,

Ang pangalan ko ay Sean Sullivan may Mobile Power Internation in the USA.

We specialize in Emergency Relief provisions for water and power. I have many contacts in Manila and Quezon City ( Family as well ) - My wife is Filipina (Ortanez - Sullivan). I have been very concerned with the recent catastrophies, flooding, loss of power, and UNSAT water supply for the communities.

My wife and her family are in and from Quezon City and my sister in law attends UST The University of Santa Thomas.

We here at Mobile Power Intl are very interested and concerned about the current Typhoon " Ramil " and want to offer our support for your previous, current, and future needs for solar power and solar powered water purification and sterilization.

The last Typhoon left my wife and I without communication with her family for 5 days and it was a tragic event as we watched and heard on the news about the floods, mudslides, collapsed sewer systems, death, and lack of life essential power and clean water supply.

Nag-aalala ako at gusto naming makatulong sa iyo.

Maraming salamat po,

We can have mobile units deployed and delievred to Manila asap.
