Living and Rico Puno

What's with these PNoy boys? Blabbering things they don't realize might hurt Noynoy and his Presidency.

Hear USEC Rico Puno say that as early as 2:00 PM PNoy was suggesting  that maybe he should go and talk to hostage taker, Mendoza to warn  him of the damage he was causing. But was  prevailed upon. Reason - protocol.. har

Why does he need to say these? What good will it do? Does it help clear things up? Or do exactly otherwise?

And what's with Sec Robredo? It's said that he accepted the DILG post on the condition that he will just take on the local government part alone. Does one accept a cabinet post to do only the things one wants to do?

 I think for the country's sake they both should go.
