Nine years after Arroyo came to power, the feeling of seeing her get on that Ford SUV as a private citizen was incomparable; seeing that mammoth gas-guzzler vanish bringing Arroyo with it was almost of divine character, more like an epiphany for a nation her rapacious administration had ravaged.
To the very end, Arroyo never wavered in her arrogance. She exists in a different universe that bars her from seeing reality in our universe. She was booed, heckled, and the people in Quirino grandstand made known to her that they were rejoicing seeing that her regime has come to an end. But she was impervious to these. She has lost everything that makes a human vulnerable to all these.
I’m just happy to see her leave.
