Where was President Arroyo during the week the Philippines was mourning?

>> Sunday, August 9, 2009

NY Post reports:

THE economic downturn hasn't persuaded everyone to pinch pennies. Philippines President Maria Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo was at Le Cirque the other night with a large entourage enjoying the good life, even though the former comptroller of her country's armed serv ices, Carlos Garcia, was found guilty earlier this year of per jury and two of his sons were arrested in the US on bulk cash-smuggling charges. Maca pagal-Arroyo ordered several bottles of very expensive wine, pushing the dinner tab up to $20,000.

If I may borrow one angry reader's comment:
THE ARROYO GOVERTMENT SAYS IN DEFENSE OF THE $20,OOO BILL WAS PAID BY A CONGRESSMAN FROM THE PHILIPPINES, HOW COME A $10,000 A YEAR SALARY CAN AFFORD TO PAY $20,000 IN 1/2 A DAY OF EAT & DRINK.
