Their present Commander-in-Chief wined and dined to the tune of $20,000 at the upscale French restaurant in New York before spending 7 minutes at the wake of President Cory Aquino.
The four Cory honor guards spent $0 in a dine in that never happened at the flatbed truck while stoically enduring an eight hour plus standing tour of duty guarding the casket of this country's most beloved Commander-in-Chief.
What contrast! Between two Commanders-in-Chief, one immensely beloved and the other, I don't know what.
What contrast! Between a Commander-in-Chief on one hand who could spare no more than seven minutes to visit President Cory Aquino's wake and 4 foot soldiers who stood faithfully for more than eight hours to guard the casket of democracy's fallen icon, do their country proud and bring honor to the uniform that they wear.
