Administration party standard-bearer Gilberto Teodoro on Tuesday strongly denied being President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo’s lapdog, appealing once more to the public to look at his platforms and not his affiliations.
“Hindi ko na kailangang iharap ang sarili ko kanino man, sa ating mga kababayan kung ako ay magiging tuta lamang. Hindi ako ng tuta ng kahit na sino,” Teodoro told GMANews.TV after his interview with broadcast journalist Mike Enriquez on the special radio program “Ikaw Na Ba: The Presidential Interview” aired over dzBB on Tuesday morning.
(There is no need for me to face our countrymen if I’m just somebody’s lapdog. I am nobody’s lapdog.)
