Proof A

Noynoy Aquino on the Chief Justice Succession Issue
Sen. Benigno S. Aquino III on the Chief Justice Succession Issue

If elected president, I will not recognize a Chief Justice appointed by the outgoing President, contrary to the constitutional ban on appointments during the wee hours of her presidency, and contrary to propriety and delicadeza and long-standing precedence of prohibition against appointments two months before the outgoing president’s term expires.

Let me forewarn any member of the Supreme Court who shall accept to be Chief Justice by appointment of the outgoing President, that not only shall he not be recognized, but he risks even his presence in the Court as an associate member.

Proofs B and C: Here and here.

No, I am not about to argue that GMA is constitutionally mandated to make an appointment–that I leave to the experts. I just want to say how stupid and arrogant it is for Noynoy to make such stupid statements. How can you issue those statements purely based on a hypothetical scenario? He’s politicking!

Working on the hypothetical scenario he has just presented, I can only assume of course that the JBC deemed it necessary for them to make a recommendation. And with that recommendation comes the need for the President’s appointment. So, should you attack the president or the JBC?

PS: Kris Aquino (Noynoy’s sister in case you don’t know) walked out temporarily, I think, of her relationship with James Yap because of a domestic/personal problem. If Noynoy can do nothing about that, what can you expect from him when he gets elected and the whole Philippines becomes his family? Maybe Noynoy will just walkout of Malacanang if he cannot solve the problem of increasing sugar and oil prices…

No, Mesdames and Sirs, this is not going to be a Why I Will Not Vote for Noynoy chronicle. I just feel like I need to make a part 2 of my previous post covering the same topic.

So, on to the next set of reasons.

(1) Did you know that a day after the wrath of Ondoy, Noynoy and Estrada was talking about politics, specifically, the possible union of their camps for the 2010 elections?

While the public’s attention was focused on tropical storm “Ondoy,” it was politics as usual for presidential aspirants Senator Benigno Aquino III and former President Joseph Estrada as they quietly met Sunday night to discuss next year’s elections.

Interviewed on Monday, Aquino said the meeting lasted for three hours but refused to give further details on its results. He said they would release a joint statement about it.

“Maganda ang resulta ng pag-uusap namin kagabi (Our meeting last night went fine), not on a personal basis, but as far as the country is concerned,” said the only son of the late President Corazon Aquino and slain senator Benigno “Ninoy” Aquino Jr.

How evil-er can you get than this? People are suffering from floods, and Noynoy is politicking?

(2) He is a trapo. Have you seen his star-studded political ad? I saw it at Youtube but I believe this is being played already in his network — ABS-CBN. Why would he make such a move even before the actual campaign period starts? He cannot say he is just playing the rules of the game of politics because no matter how you look at the Election Code, you cannot campaign as of yet. Other politicians are doing it, too. But he cannot use that reason — what happened to evil versus good mantra of his? And he cannot say it is not a political ad; because only trapos do that.

(3) Poor legislative performance. I saw in an article that he wasn’t able to pass any single law that he authored. Huh? Then what did he do in the Senate? Nagbutas ng upuan? Supporters of Noynoy say just because he did not perform well in the legislative branch doesn’t mean that he will automatically perform the same way in the executive branch. Maybe. But we should not look at the legislative-executive performance comparison. They are both public service posts regardless of the branch of government involved. If he didn’t perform well in his post now, there is a very high probability that he won’t perform well in the presidency. Even if legislative and executive are co-equal branches, we know that the presidency is the highest post of the land. Why would you gamble “promoting” an inefficient senator to a president?

(4) He doesn’t even know what he is saying. He always says he is a fiscalizer and will always be a fiscalizer even if he becomes the president. What the f— is he thinking (if at all he is thinking)? A president cannot be fiscalizer — as a head of the state, a president is the one that will be fiscalized (http://antipinoy.com/want-to-run-for-president-start-by-buying-a-dictionary/). He is like an irritating corporate executive babbling industry buzz words without knowing what they really mean.

(5) He doesn’t even have a clear platform of government! And much as I want to fill this up with supporting evidence, I just can’t because he really doesn’t have any.

Hayyzzz… It’s just sad that with the support of celebrities and a big network like ABS-CBN, Noynoy might just win. (What is it for the ABS-CBN by the way?)

There are so many reasons I will not vote for Noynoy. You may share some of these; or maybe hate me for saying them.

Foremost of all reasons: I don’t vote. So, yeah, I will not vote for anyone, anyway. But if ever I will have to choose between death and casting a vote this 2010, I will definitely not choose Noynoy.

I won't vote for Noynoy.

I won't vote for Noynoy.

Why?

(1) His mediocre performance as congressman and a senator, and as a statesman in general. When you think of Noynoy, what really comes into your mind as far as his legislative performance is concerned? Nada. Mar Roxas has Cheaper Medicines Act to boast for; Gibo is a bar topnotcher; Villar has a classic rags-to-riches story. But Noynoy? He is just the son of Ninoy and Cory, and nothing more — which brings me to my next reason why I will not vote for him.

(2) He may be a son of Ninoy, but along with this feudalistic heritage is the Hacienda Luisita issue — wait, Hacienda Luisita Massacre (Google it!). I have no doubts in Ninoy‘s capacity to lead the nation (he’s one of my idols, in fact). But look at what happened when we thought someone close to Ninoy will be a good replacement (Cory, that is): power shortage, coup attempts, executive-legislative deadlocks, CARP which didn’t apply to the Cojuangcos by the way, and of course, the Mendiola and Hacienda Luisita massacres. Yeah, massacres.

(Corollary: They say voting for Gibo is just like voting for GMA — which I don’t really agree with — then, voting for Noynoy is just voting for Cory, a textbook case of political dynasty at the very least.)

(3) His messianic complex (…a messiah complex is a state of mind in which the individual believes he/she is, or is destined to become, a savior). He is saying this is a battle of good and evil, and of course, he is the “good” part of that equation. (Review #2 above.) If the 2010 election is a battle between something and something, well, it is at most a battle of evils and lesser evils. (Unless of course Willie Revillame joins the presidential race, in which case, this would become a battle among evils, lesser evils, and a comedian.)

(4) He is indecisive. There are two things I would like to share in the matter of his indecisiveness. When a group of people made the initiative to convince him to run, Noynoy even has to go to a retreat to ask for divine guidance. What the–?! It’s not the divine guidance that I am doubting here, but his indecisiveness. Other presidentiables have long decided that they would want to run. And it’s good. You cannot just go on a retreat and then say you’ll ask for divine guidance before you do something. PLUS, I think he is just being pretentious there. When Mar Roxas made his announcement that he is backing out of the race and will just support Noynoy’s bid for the presidency, Mar said it was a result of their (Noynoy and Mar’s) series of conversations. Meaning, a decision has been made already. Why then would he still go to that retreat only if not to feel how the masses would react in Mar’s announcement? Pretentious, manipulative, evil.

So, before I get criticized by writing this article without providing a good alternative, let me say here who I want to be the president:

PaPi!
yeah, PaPi for President!

Vote for me, yeah?

Yesterday, Mar Roxas announced that he will be supporting Noynoy for his presidential bid (oh, and Noynoy hasn’t made any announcement yet as of this writing). When Mar was asked why he backed out, he was very firm in saying he did not really back out… what he said, according to that interview with Julius Babao of ABS-CBN, was that he is supporting Noynoy for his presidential bid. (I don’t know if it’s just me but I think he somehow emphasized that he did not back out.

Noynoy’s family, on the other hand, keeps on asking the people not to pressure Noynoy regarding the 2010 elections. Very funny. Kris Aquino cannot really separate showbusiness from politics and governance. I mean, according to reports, Noynoy and Mar have been having these dialogues for days now so they can figure out what is the best course of action for the two of them — will it be Noynoy-Mar or Mar-Noynoy? My point is, the entire idea of Mar’s press conference is that they were able to reach an agreement — and that, of course, is for Noynoy to run for the presidency. Anong pressure ba ang sinasabi ni Kris?!

Moving on to the What If, I was just thinking: What if this is just a play by Noynoy and Mar? We all know that Mar is not a winnable candidate as far as surveys are concerned. And it is my belief that Noynoy, although he may have the support of a number of people courtesy of his being the son of Ninoy and Cory, is not yet ready for such a big role. What if the two has agreed to help each other by doing this drama?

  1. Mar will “sacrifice” his aspirations so for the greater good. (Wouldn’t this increase Mar’s ranking in surveys? I mean, you just need a good PR person to romanticize the idea of Mar sacrificing personal ends for the greater good, right? Mar would become a super-selfless presidentiable.
  2. Noynoy will announce later on that while he praise Mar’s decision, he believes he is not yet ready to run for the presidency. And with this, “I am encouraging all of you to support my good friend, the selfless senator, Mar Roxas, for his presidential bid.”

mar-noynoy

What will happen? Mar Roxas hopefully absorbs Noynoy’s public support, and Noynoy retains his ‘presidentiability’ which will be very, very ready by 2016. In the mean time, Mar will have him as his VP and assign him a very challenging role in the cabinet.

Hay naku. If only I can vote, I’ll definitely vote for Mar Roxas for president.
