With the vast array of possible professions, a career in politics is sure to draw varied reactions, especially when it comes to practicing etiquette and serving their sectors with honor. It is an open secret that a government person is not counted as among the ideal people that will always draw negative feedback, especially in such countries as the Philippines and Thailand, where graft and corruption is pretty much evident. President George Bush also has his share of issues, much of which are exposed to the public at times where people like him have done so much to make his country to where it is at the moment.
In the Philippines, President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo has her share of issues as well, being pushed to the limit as being accused of fraudulent matters that date back as much as the elections where she started to get power. For a country like the Philippines, it is no secret that it is a country divided at the moment, owing to the fact that the New Peopleâ€™s Army (NPA) and the Filipino government have been constantly clashing for their rights, hurting the economy all the more. Coup attempts and rumors are almost regular instances, being a cause to prevent the Philippines from truly exhausting its true potential.
For President Bush, a lot has been connected towards his aggressive style, colliding and going to war with countries such as Iraq and the unforgettable tragedy of the World Trade Center known as 9/11. Terrorism continues to haunt the world, and unless a true leader that people look up to would surface, there is no remorse in sight for these countries and the world as well.
