Outgoing Vice President Jejomar Binay is not only kind to those loyal to him – but most especially to his political enemies. His character is already tested during his many years of public service in Makati. Many are convinced that he did not win the presidency because he is just too good for “hard headed” people. Perhaps a tougher one is needed to make all predictions come true.
Rappler reported: The two met at Robredo’s home in Quezon City on Monday afternoon, June 27, accompanied by their respective staff members. Binay said of the Monday meeting. She told me she’d go and visit me but I insisted that I’d be the one to pay her a visit. Robredo, meanwhile, said Binay made the visit to personally congratulate her and to offer his help, should it be needed. He told me that if there were any way he could help, I should just call him or his chief of staff. He was very kind.
Binay was also invited to Robredo’s inauguration but the outgoing V.P. declined because he would not want to cause tension between her and the Liberal Party – thinking that he was the head of its major opposition party and the number one critic of the Aquino administration.
