President Benigno Simeon Cojuangco Aquino III submitted his resignation papers at 10 Am today at the office of the Senate President and the Speaker of the House of Representatives. He was accompanied by his four sobbing sisters at the office of Senate President Franklin Drilon and the chief of Black and White Movement singer Leah Navarro and her group at the office of House Speaker Feliciano "Sonny" Belmonte. Navarro figured recently in a spat at Twitter with the president's former girl friend TV-5 host Grace Lee on the fiasco’s that befell the 44 elite Special Action Force of the Philippine National Police in a rebel infested town in the Southern part island Mindanao in the Philippines.
“With the blunder after blunder I and Alan( Purisima, former chief of the Philippine National Police) have been committing, my conscience could not allow me to continue serving the Filipinos on this thankless job called the presidency,” a poker faced but coughing president speaks.
