Mar Roxas did everything he thought he could do except for the right things. He didn’t need to direct traffic himself, for example. He could have asked the traffic enforcers to do it. He just wanted the cameras showing him doing something. He sucks at delegation and therefore would never have made a good manager or administrator.
Mar cannot accept facts. The results speak for themselves. Everyone saw how disorganised they were during the Yolanda typhoon. The PNoy government turned the tragedy into a disaster. More people died unnecessarily in the aftermath due to slow response and callous attitude of govt officials.
Why is Mar Roxas suddenly speaking out about the Yolanda disaster of 2013? It is likely because Yolanda was the straw that broke the back of the camel that was the false veneer of competence he cultivated. It was his chance to shine but, instead, came out of it the goat. He will be remembered forever for botching what could have been a preventable tragedy.
No matter how much he tries to dismiss the allegations against him in his incompetent management of the Yolanda disaster, the facts are part of the historical record and will always be there for all to examine.
In life, things are not always what they seem.
