Benigno “Bam” Aquino IV. INQUIRER FILE PHOTO

President Aquino on Thursday made a subtle pitch for his cousin, Benigno “Bam” Aquino IV, who is aiming to secure a Senate seat in the 2013 midyear polls.

At the awarding ceremonies of the Ten Accomplished Youth Organizations (TAYO) in Malacañang, the President told the youth guests that his cousin never passed up the chance to concretize his dreams for the youth and the country.

“Be assured that my kuya (older male relative, referring to his younger cousin in jest) would be truthful to his advocacy. And if ever he strays, I assure you that the two of us will have to talk before the ghosts of my parents and our grandmother might even appear to him,” he said, drawing chuckles.

Bam, president of the TAYO Awards Foundation, is among the 12 senatorial candidates running under the Liberal Party-led coalition in next year’s elections.

Launched in 2002, the TAYO Awards recognizes youth organizations that contribute to national development through humanitarian projects in their communities. It is organized every year by the TAYO Awards Foundation in partnership with the office Sen. Francis Pangilinan and the National Youth Commission.

In his speech, the President said the 28 million youth who make up 30 percent of the population have a big potential to shape Philippine society.

“Just imagine how far we can get if each one of you paddles in the same direction that we do toward truthfulness, instead of anomaly. Just imagine the force that nearly 28 million arms would add toward the massive development of our country,” he said.

With the country teeming with youngsters ready to contribute time, talent and brains, Mr. Aquino said he was confident the government could root our poverty and help the poor realize their dreams.

“We often hear the complaint: the youth are a lot different nowadays. If they’re not glued to their computers, they’re out on a gimmick or in the malls. This may be true for some. But it’s clear that values—concern for others, looking out for the needy, willingness to help for the good of the country—remain planted in the hearts of the youth,” he said. TJ Burgonio

       I love Papa Ninoy and Blessed Mama Cory. I love their only begotten son our beloved President PNoy. I love the presidential cousin Bam Aquino. Finally, a new and yet familiar face that we can all trust. A familiar brand name whose mettle and reliability have been tried and tested time and again. A family whose sacrifices have touched many lives and transformed many more. A family we could call our own. Almost like a first family in fact. A household name. An iconic stencil face and retro-ninoyesque eyewear that never fails to remind us of how one man can make that much of a difference in a country that continues to hope. And now, a generation after, here’s another one who is cut from the same fabric and of the same mettle, but definitely a cut above the rest. Bam’s got Ninoy’s look and eyewear alright. But Bam has also proven himself. He has launched a thousand entrepreneurship(s) and many more. Bam has made many Pinoys happy through social entrepreneurship. He has enabled many Filipino to help themselves. With Bam in the senate, he can serve the country better and help more Filipinos.

      Thanks to our dear leader PNoy for ushering in a period of peace, prosperity and plenty. Thanks to our beloved President PNoy for givng us a taste of Pax Filipina. If you want the good times to continue, vote for Bam Aquino. If you want your good life to become even better, vote for Bam Aquino.

  • chuggy

    Bam: your choice of haircut and eyeglasses in order to look like Ninoy is cheap. Stop whoring his looks and get your own identity.

    • EOJ

       Stupid comment. he really looks like ninoy even without the glasses.

      • chuggy

        Stupider comment. That doesn’t account for Bam also copying Ninoy’s haircut and glasses, which is a shallow way of marketing himself.

      • EOJ

        So how would you market yourself if you look like your uncle who is Ninoy?

        You are so full of envy.

      • chuggy

        I wouldn’t market myself if my uncle was Ninoy because I am against political dynasties. It is enshrined in the Constitution that Ninoy’s wife helped establish. How ironic given the current circumstances.

      • EOJ

        Now you are changing topic because Bam really resembles his uncle. Re dynasty, it depends. If trustworthy and honest people like Bam Aquino are presenting themselves I will vote for them but not for the marcoses, arroyos, and estradas.

      • http://www.ninoyandcory.gov.ph/ It’s No Time To Doubt Now

        chuggy, give it up babe. even if Bam’s receding hairline makes him look less alike Ninoy, the entire country would still vote for him.

        he has in him what you don’t — love for country.

      • http://www.ninoyandcory.gov.ph/ It’s No Time To Doubt Now

        At any rate, we are glad to note that Bam has a very strong appeal among
        the youth sector and C, D & E groups because of his uncanny
        resemblance to Ninoy’s iconic stencil face and his ninoyesque eyeswear.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/BWG72KRWO3QIHI5MG3EMVFEMZ4 Nick

    no way this wannabe ever going to get a vote from me..i pretty much believe bam or anybody from his circle reads this portion, you are one big EPAL and trapo..even trying hard to imitate ninoy with his looks..another member of the oligarchs in the senate? tsk..tsk..

    • http://www.ninoyandcory.gov.ph/ It’s No Time To Doubt Now

      But why do you take it against Bam for being a Ninoy lookalike? He had no hand in choosing to which family he was going to be born. He certainly did not choose for his late uncle to die so early for the country and for our sins. He certainly did not deliberately choose to inherit his uncanny facial resemblance to our national superhero Ninoy. And he most certainly would have chosen to do without the ninoyesque eyewear if only poor eyesight did not run in the family. The best things in life just happened to fall on Bam’s lap. Not exactly his fault. That’s why he wants to give back to the country and to serve you and me and along with 90 million other Filipinos. To whom much is given, much is expected — that is a long standing tradition the Aquinos and Cojuangcos have always lived by. As a country, as a people, we are better off because of them.

      May Bam be with you in May 2013.

      Totoo yan. Bam has done a lot. Bam is promoting social entrepreneurship. That means social entrepreneurship is being promoted by Bam. And if it gets enough promotion, it will become a buzzword. If it becomes a buzzword, it will create more buzz. And buzz begets buzz. And as the buzz increases and the world becomes abuzz with buzz, there will be more buzzing bees to make our country the land of honey. In short, Bam will make our country the land of honey.

      Sweet diba.

       That’s very impressive and if that’s all true, even I might vote for him.

      I love Papa Ninoy and Blessed Mama Cory. I love their only begotten son our beloved President PNoy. I love the presidential cousin Bam Aquino. The Filipino people have been waiting for a candidate with a new and yet familiar face like Bam Aquino. Bam will infuse new blood into our lifeless senate. Bam will bring new light into the dark halls of the senate. Bam will introduce fresh new ideas and youthful vigor to our senate. Bam comes from a family that served our country well. Ninoy fought for our freedom, went behind bars for our freedom, starved to near death for our freedom, went under the knife for our freedom and ultimately took a bullet in the head for our freedom. Cory took up the cause of her husband and fought the social cancer that has been plaguing this country until cancer got the better of her. In many ways, both Ninoy and Cory died for our sins so that we may become a better nation. For good measure, they even sent us their only begotten son PNoy who is leading us out of the darkness along the righteous path. Bam’s other aunt, Tita Tessie, taught us a few dance steps to lighten the mood during one of the darkest hours of our senate history back in 2001. Bam’s other uncle, Tito Butz, kept the memory of Ninoy alive by just looking like his late brother. Bam Aquino has the right family name, the right pedigree, the right bloodline, the right lineage and the legitimate birthright to the senate. Most importantly, Bam brings to life the iconic stencil face of Ninoy. Bam’s ninoyesque eyewear will bring us closer to Ninoy’s grand vision. Bam has everything we admired in Ninoy. Now that Bam Aquino has put himself on the line, let us do our part by voting for him in 2013.

      We love you Bam. You make us the Filipino millennials proud.

    Ryan Agoncillo, a former colleague of Bam Aquino, has this to say about him:

    “Yang kaibigan kong si Bam, para siyang alak. Para siyang emperador lite. Magaan dalhin. Masarap kasama. Pumupukaw ng damdamin. The longer you get to know him, pasarap ng pasarap ang samahan. Even before pa, sa Studio 23, Bam has always exhibited this strong social consciousness and the willingness to help the needy. To whom much is given, much is expected. Yan ang nakita ko sa kanya. Bam is truly a talented Filipino who deserves to be in the senate.”

    • Qwxyz

    First, Pnoy promised none of his family members would be appointed government official or run for public office.  Now, he’s pitching for his nephew Bam.

    • EOJ

       No such promise. In the first place, elected officials are prohibited to appoint family members. Tanga!

    Nung panahaon ni Marcos naglabasan sila Elisabeth, anak na si Keon, Berba, mga Romualdez (halos nd kilala sa labas ng Leyte). Nung panahon ni Cory naglabasan sila Butch, Tessie, Peping, Tingting. Nung panahon ni Ramos naglabasan sila Leticia, anak na si Sanjit (Narayatnamvhagatsingh). Nung panahon ni Estrada naglabasan cla Jinggoy, JV at nanay (kahit nd Estrada), Loi (nananahimik sa SF, USA umuwi pa), Jude, Laarni at ibpa. Nung panahon ni Arroyo naglabasan ang mga buwaya pati yung sa Ligwasan marsh. Ngayong Aquino na naman labasan na naman ang mga kamag-anak.

       Big difference. I will judge a candidate by their personal credentials and track record.

  • yesyesyo

    Benigno “Bam” Aquino IV deserves my sacred vote.

    Another Aquino?  Lahi na naman ng mga Intsik? another angkan na naman ng mga magnanakaw (believe it or not).

  • mousy

    sorry ka kung hindi sana naging presidente si noynoying baka nanalo ka pa. ngayon wala ka nang pag asa, unless mag dagdag bawas kayo.

    Mukhang maganda ang pinapasikat ni Bam Aquino na track record pero hindi pa rin ako kumbinsido para iboto siya bilang senador. Subukan nya munang mag congressman at baka sakali sa susunod na eleksiyon, iboboto ko na siya sa pagka senador. 

    Mas lalo namang walang kwenta si Nancy Binay. Personal Assistant lang ng amang si VP ay pang senador na ang tingin sa sarili.

  • Your_King

    P4B in damages, over 400 lives claimed, and many more missing from typhoon ‘Pablo’ and Aquino is seen here campaigning for his cousin. The President of the Philippines does not have his priorities straight and his mind is somewhere else spinning in a square.

  • http://www.facebook.com/metz.ceprian Buknoy Bisaya

    aquino,binay, enrile, angara, villar, estrada, cayetano…et al

    these people are fielding relatives to either join them or replace them in power.

  • kismaytami

    Political dynasties… PWEH!!!

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_GYYFBINDMTZHM6TDHPB667452M agustin

    No to LP & UNA all are trapos and political dynasty. corruption starts at these candidates.

    • EOJ

      Nilahat mo na.LOL! so narrowminded. Generalizing is not smart thinking.

      Certainly LP coalition has better candidates.

  • GOPHILIPPINESGO

    I am voting straight LP coalition. I trust PNoy’s choices for the senate.
    We have to sustain the reforms instituted by president Aquino and continue progress for the country.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_GYYFBINDMTZHM6TDHPB667452M agustin

    In order for us to get rid of corruption, we should vote for the independent  candidates. political dynasty is the root cause of our woes.

  • disqusted0fu

    so this is why Aquino couldnt leave immediately to the aid of the typhoon victims… he needed to campaign for his cousin.
