GMA’s 8th SONA, SANA HINDI TAYO MA OCHO-OCHO
SONA 2001- THE PAYATAS BOYS AND THEIR BANKANG PAPEL AFLOATED FROM PAYATAS TO MALACANANG: Trabaho, edukasyon, sariling tahanan. Idagadag na rin: Pagkain sa bawat mesa. Ito ang mithiin ng masa.
SONA 2002- STRONG REPUBLIC At dahil ako ay naluklok sa pagkapangulo dala ng malawakanang galit sa anomalya, alam kong dapat wakasan ang katiwalian.
SONA 2003: A STRONG REPUBLIC: Ang kahirapan ay unti-unting nagagapi. Self-rated poverty again according to the survey, is at its lowest percentage of the population in the last 16 years.
SONA 2004: ANGELO DE LA CRUZ IS HOME. Pinapangako ko ang isang bagong direksyon: Mamamayan muna. Ang taong bayan ang pinakamalaki nating yaman.

SONA 2007: PHILIPPINES 1st WORLD STATUS: Hangarin kong mapabilang ang Pilipinas sa mayayamang bansa sa loob ng dalawampung taon. By then poverty shall have been marginalized; and the marginalized raised to a robust middle class.We will have achieved the hallmarks of a modern society, where institutions are strong.

THE PRESIDENT IS AS STRONG AS SHE WANTS TO BE: I stand in the way of no one’s ambition. I only ask that no one stand in the way of the people’s well being and the nation’s progress.The time for facing off is over. The time is here for facing forward to a better future our people so desperately want and richly deserve.Uulitin ko: Hindi ako sagabal sa ambisyon ninuman.But make no mistake.

SONA 2008: GLOBAL ECONOMIC CRISIS IS TO BLAME. Because tough choices were made, kumikilos na ang bayan sa wakas. Malapit na sana tayo sa pagbalanse ng budget. We were retiring debts in great amounts, reducing the drag on our country’s development, habang namumuhunan sa taong bayan.
