Bobi's bogey

Rigoberto "Bobi" Tiglao, chief of Arroyo's Presidential Management Staff, must really hate Joma Sison and his communist ilk. I was told that in gatherings and media interviews, Tiglao would rail against Joma and his communist friends in such groups as Bayan and Bayan Muna, convinced that they are the ones behind the organized campaign against his president.

Bobi was himself a former activist (nudge-nudge, wink-wink) so he should know whereof he speaks. But isn't he giving too much credit to these ideological blowhards?

I wonder what would Tiglao say had Popoy Lagman lived. Tiglao adored Lagman; he once called him a "people power visionary." Lagman, I'm sure, would have joined the calls for Tiglao's boss to resign.
