Finally a spokesman of President Arroyo admitted Friday that the president had breast augmentation 20 years ago but denied the implants were leaking as reported.
Earlier Press Secretary Remonde belied reports that the president had checked in to the Asian Hospital in Muntinlupa for the removal and replacement of silicon implants on her breasts. He even told male reporters that any man could easily spot whether a woman has breast implants or not. He even asked media people if the president is a type of a woman who who would do breast augmentation; as if he was saying the president didn’t need it as she had already that desired size naturally.
But then he changed his statement, as usual, and said the president had the breast augmentation implants 20 years ago but not leaking. Further Remonde said that the President was declared in good health after biopsies were conducted on lumps found on her breast and groin.
“The result of the biopsy is negative. The President is in good health. You will see her moving around in the next few days. That’s the best proof of her health,” his assurance to the people without telling if she had been operated or not.
And of course the NBI is conducting its probe on who leaked information on the confinement of the president and the private medical information conderning her at the Asian Hospital. Of course Malacanang denied hands on this probe. Sources alleged that after three medical staff had already given statements, the probe is already focused on one doctor. And nobody could tell if it’s the president’s doctor. But that’s no longer important at this point. What matter is that at least Malacanang is telling the truth this time.
So the entire nation must be happy because the President is declared healthy by her doctors and physically fit to serve her country in her capacity as a Chief Executive Official. It does not matter whether she’s the legal occupant of Malacanang or not, the thing is that her term will soon expire and she could no longer be re-elected for the same position. Now it’s time for her to face the real problems of the country: worsening economy as a consequence of the global economic crisis and the rising prices of energy, massive unemployment, deterioration of peace and order as a result of bombings in Metro-Manila and Mindanao, and the spread of the A(HiNi) flu virus, etc.
Before the president’s SONA (State of the Nation Address) we will be seeing a looking good and healthy president addressing the joint houses of the Congress and the Filipino Nation as well. But of course she must be ready too with a mamoth crowd protesting against the Con Ass and other graft and corruption charges hurled against her. Meanwhile with the president given a clean bill of health, some paranoid minds not necessarily from the opposition are again having fear of the unknown–Martial Law.
