WHERE THE HELL WAS THE PROMISED SURPRISE?
I guess it was that he had the courage to stand in front of all the people and tell them something they knew all to well. I guess the "surprise" thing was just to divert some attention from the complete failure he had to stand there and announce to all listening. Some excerpts of the "surprise".....Fitial: NMI govt is 'STILL BROKE'
The surprise was that there was no surprise.
True to his word, Gov. Benigno R. Fitial reported the state of the Commonwealth as it is. The government is “still broke,” he said yesterday, and “better times” will take some time."
“Last year I reported to you that the CNMI government was broke. Today I stand before you to report that we are still broke."...( means even more broke)
Toward the end, he responded to criticism that he had failed to deliver his election promise two years ago, which was to bring “better times” to the Commonwealth.
“Better times is a hope, an aspiration, a dream, and I have not given up on that hope for the CNMI. My dream is still very much alive," he said....... Now for the photo-op, just another good buddy picture aimed at Washington, has no impact here, these guys don't even like each other.
Different political parties, you know how that works. (See my post-#206- on bullshitting.)......Well you have a much better time today, now that you have received your "surprise". ........GED.......
