Drilon slams UNA for trying to make Aquino ‘lame duck’ president

MANILA, Philippines – Senator Franklin Drilon has accused the United Nationalist Alliance  (UNA) of allegedly trying to make  President Benigno Aquino III a “lame duck”  ever since  he assumed office in  2010.

And  the President  himself, Drilon  said,  was “conscious” of  that effort  by  UNA, headed  by Vice President Jejomar Binay and former President Joseph Estrada.

“I am sure Toby won’t admit it. But the objective, in any not only in UNA, in general on opposition, for the last three years of this administration, (they) are trying to make this administration a lame duck,”  he said in an interview over ABS-CBN News Channel (ANC) Tuesday  night.

Toby is  Navotas Representative  Tobias Tiangco, secretary –general  of UNA,  who was  also being  interviewed on the  same  network. Drilon, meanwhile is the campaign manager of the  Liberal Party-led coalition ticket.

“There is nothing wrong with that, by the way, because you compete for political power and therefore, part of that, you try to make the incumbent sitting President a lame duck. We are conscious of that. The President is conscious of that. And we draw the line. We will not be lame duck. We will have the majority of the people with us because we still have reforms to do,” Drilon said.

“Yes. Let us call a spade a spade. Maybe not in your show they will never admit that they are trying to make the President a lame duck. But in their internal meetings, natural iyon. Huwag na tayong maglokohan. Let’s call a spade a spade,” he said.

“But that’s a challenge for us. We will show that for the next three years, we will do things correctly; we will do things in a manner that a decent right-thinking will do regardless of a politics,” he added.

Tiangco, responding  to Drilon’s statements, said  he would not concede that they would like to make the President a lame duck.

“I agreed that we are competing with the LP, but we equally support the good programs of the administration. Yung LP lang ang katunggali namin sa pulitika,” Tiangco said.

“And the President happens to be our chairman,” Drilon said.

“But he also happens to be the President of the Philippines,”  said the UNA spokesman.

Drilon then reiterated his  call for  UNA to draw  the lines and  admit  that they are the opposition.

“I have always told Toby: let’s define the lines. We are the administration, you are the opposition. There is nothing wrong with that. In democracy, opposition is necessary,” said the senator.

  • http://www.dafk.net/what/ Kilabot ng mga Balahibo

    Well if it walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, what would I call it. PENOY?!

    (what is penoy anyway, blighted ovum? can somebody please clarify. )

    • poltergeist_fuhrer

      right!….hhaha

    • Loggnat

      I was told that a ‘penoy’ is an unfertilized duck egg. In the process of making ‘balut’, the duck egg is incubated and constantly checked to make sure that the egg is developing properly. The duck egg is supposed to develop gradually and at several months, it is noticeable and easy to see the embryo’s development. At this stage, those that are not fertilized does not have any sign of developing embryo and they are removed from the process. These eggs are the ‘penoy’ as opposed to ‘abnoy’ who were initially developing embryo but for one reason or another dies and stops growing. All these eggs are not thrown away but were eaten boiled or cooked ie. bibingkang abnoy ( sort of abnoy omelet, my favorite, looks like the spanish tortilla de patata ) and other style of cooking. At 18 months, the duck is prime for ‘balut’ and these eggs are called ‘balut sa puti ‘ because a thin layer of egg white covers the small duck embryo and it is easier to eat it that way. Yummmyyy ….. Deng good food if you ask me. :)))

      • http://www.dafk.net/what/ Kilabot ng mga Balahibo

        oh.

        thanks for the clarification. apparently i am mistaken. what everyone knows as abnoy, i call penoy.

        probably thats because I usually buy ‘penoy na may sabaw’ which is apparently an abnoy since the yolk and while have already mixed and would never develop.

        thank you sir, and I appreciate what you have shared.

        and yes. i think ill visit the friendly neighborhood balut vendor later tonight.

  • Maitum

    To UNA, don’t hide your true feelings. Are you afraid to go against a popular president? It has been noted by ordinary citizens especially in our neighborhood. Don’t ride in the popularity of the president, or the popularity of some candidates by using them in your sorties. Be yourself.

  • bugoybanggers

    Marami o halos lahat ng Pilipino LAME DUCK. Bakit? Aba naman makikita ninyo sa katayuan ng BANSA. NagpapaBULLY, nagpapakaTUTA, walang paninindigan sa sarili, kapag sinabi ng US na TAMA, agree agad. Sa pamamalakad sa Peace & Order, mahina pa sa takbo ng isang PAGONG. Justice ano? Dinadaan na lang sa DEBATE. Wala na.. ano pa ang mapapala? Para mawala ang pag kaLAME DUCK.. Madugong CIVIL WAR lang ang SOLUTION.. hayaan natin na DUGO ang maghuhugas sa imahe ng Pilipinas.

    • akongednamzug

      Sa iyo ko lang nadinig ang “Madugong CIVIL WAR lang ang SOLUTION”. Bugoy na bugoy ang dating mo.

      • bugoybanggers

        Ang PILIPINAS lang ang hindi nakasubok ng madugong CIVIL WAR sa makabagong panahon kaya maraming nagmamayabang at nagpapasapawan. Makikita naman sa katayuan ng mga REGION. Sino ba sa mga REGION ang nagpapakita ng superiority diba ang mga KATAGALUGAN kasi ang paniniwala nila sila lang ang PINAKAMAGALING. Kaya nga walang natototo sa kung sino at ano ang dapat sundin. Ang JAPAN (madugo ang history nila), ang KOREA at CHINA (napaka-madugo rin), ang AMERICA malupit pa ang dinanas ganon din ang EUROPA. Sa Pilipinas WW2 lang? Ano ba iyan, ang adhikain ng CIVIL WAR ay ulitin at baguhin ang pagkakamali na dinaranas ng KASALUKUYAN. Sana nga magka SUMMER REVOLUTION ang PILIPINAS.. madugo na mababawasan ang 100Milliong tao na halos 70% ay galing sa BULOK na semilya na dapat noon pa ay hindi na sana binuo ng tadhana. Magiging aral at TITINO ang bawat isa.

      • okayayonip

        remnant ka pa yata ng Third Reich ha bugoy, easy ka lang. sulatan mo si jomari at magkakagandahan kayo ng usapan pero dito sa PDI ‘di pa sila ready sa idea mong kaduguan.

      • bugoybanggers

        Bakit tama naman talaga. Maraming bugok na semilya ng mga SIRA ULONG mga DUWAG na Pilipino (sila ang lahing di dapat dumami) ang nagtatalamasa sa mga lahi ngayon, sila pa ang naghahari ngayon. Alam ko iyan, noong WW2 nabanggit ng patay ko ng LOLO na napakaraming DUWAG na PILIPINO (beterano) ang nagmamayabang sa MEDIA ngayon. Sa totoo lang sila ay mga nangunguna para sumuko at ipamigay ang PILIPINAS na kung totoosin pwede pa sanang talunin ang mga HAPON. Ang nangyari nauna ang kasakiman sa pera at kamo gusto pang ipamod-mod ang mga naglalansahang tamod nila. Makikita ninyo ang mga makakapal na mukha ng mga BETERANO, mga bayani daw.. ang mga lumaban ng HUSTO ay patay na at sila pa ngayon ang nakalimutan. Sa Pilipinas sa kasalukuyan, maraming lahi ng mga LAMEDUCK, mismo sa kasumdaluhan ng AFP-PNP..nauna pa sa kayabangan kesyo US trained. Nakakahiya!

After the war wat is your best solution? can our country stand up after those chaos destruction of infrastructure and everything. ur stupidity and childish way of thinking is can do nothing but chaos

      • bugoybanggers

        No childish you LAMEDUCK., your afraid because you stay in FORBES PARK. Hindi ka nakakaranas ng KABULOKAN ng BANSA. Ang mga namumuno ay Pilipinas ay parepareho lang kasi sila-sila parin ang nandiyan at nagpapalitan lang. Kung PATAYIN natin ang mga iyan, sisibol ang tamang LIDER na mamomono ng tapat sa BANSA. Tama na ang pagka LAMEDUCK.. sobra na ang pahirap ninyo sa BANSA. Kawawa na nga ang PILIPINAS, hinahayaan pa ninyong KAWAWAIN ng IBA.. kaya lahat dapat BAGUHIN sa madugong paraan. Katayin na ang mga LAMEDUCK at gawing pulutan kahalili sa ASKAL.

    UNA doesnt want to admit that they are the opposition because they know too well that PNOY is a very popular and incorruptible President.

    so they will just pretend to be supportive of PNOY so as not to be labeled as TRAPO and CORRUPT POLITICIANS who is OPPOSITE OF WHO PNOY IS.

    BUT THE TRUTH OF THE MATTER IS BINAY, ERAP AND ENRILE ARE THE REAL TRAPO AND MOST CORRUPT POLITICIANS THIS COUNTRY HAS EVER HAD!

    GO TEAM PINOY! DOWN WITH UNA!

    If this inutile president in malacanang don’t want to be a lame duck then be a DUCKLING! This  present inconsequential Regime has the tendency to be showbiz that’s why the former CSAFP Gen Dellosa has slipped of the tongue when he called the name of the Executive Secretary as Paquito Diaz.  That’s why the slogan of DOT that its more fun in the Philippines is really an apt description to the performance of this cursed Regime.

      Buti na lang may mga corruption case si GMA and family, pati LOLA, in the GRANDMOTHER OF ALL SCAMS.
      Tapos, 2012 has become the best year for the PHilippines in 38 years.
      Buti na lang hindi na si GMA ang presidente.

      Duckling pa si Abnoy niyan, huh, sabi ng alazzkador.  Dapat pa ngang pasalamatan siya, na dahil sa pagwawalis ng pamahalaan ng mga duming katulad niya, nakikilala sa buong mundo ang potentials ng Pilipinas.

    What do you expect from UNA candidates in this coming elections? I’m just puzzled as to why people keep turning their attention to the opposition candidates. Perhaps, the people have discounted the brouhaha that took place in the Senate, wherein JPE was accused of favoritism among the senators, not to mention the abuse of discretion on the Senate’s MOOE.

    01. UNA has zero credibility, especially after the Enrile-Gigi scandal and their MOOE extravaganza.

    02. PNoy will never be a lame duck president, unless he chooses to be so by offering lame excuses for not going after Bong Naguiat and Rico Puno, and for quacking like a duck whenever he loses self-control.

    03. Senator Drilon on the other hand is one stinking dirty pig. He is so bloated with overbudget, MOOE and so much lard that he looks like a pig and stinks like a pig from afar. Like all pigs, he will have his day in a slaughterhouse, if not in an incinerator. May God take you soon for your avarice and sloth.

    • http://www.dafk.net/what/ Kilabot ng mga Balahibo

       “unless he chooses to be so by offering lame excuses for not going after”

      but didn’t he coin the phrase “namana lang natin ito sa nakaraan administrasyon…” which plagued the fist 2 years of his admin. I would say that is a lame excuse for being a leader. I would rather he say “The buck stops here” or “This is a problem, we recognize it, and we will do the following to rectify the problem which you will expect to be finished as such time….”

      “Senator Drilon on the other hand is one stinking dirty pig”

    May maituturing bang accomplishment ang UNA? Siguro yong UNA sa palabag ng batas. At sino ang mga leader ng UNA? Mga corrupt leaders..Binay yumaman sa paglilingkod sa mahihirap.

    LP: “And the President happens to be our chairman,”

Just watch out when Mr. Makati Man will become president what Pinoy stand for all of us against our rival to our territory. he will abolish it sorry to say but that is what is see he will knell his knees totally doubt him they are hunger for $$$$ like the previous administration which is totally CRAP.

    For the first time we have a president that will stand on what we are fighting for. for what is right did the previous admin did the same thing NONE. did Mr. former pres. tabako had do the same NONE there is a series of event involving 3 president been pass but they done nothing.

    Did the modernization plan push through in the past 3 president NONE nothing happen only their pockets went go to modernize but not our own armed forces. Since when that people get contented on the president that we have none. People didnt get satisfaction who ever will step on as president.

    A dirty politics of Philippines that how it goes a war of POWER anyone of them wants it. to take the greatest position ever. Why other want to run for senate it is about serving people? serving Filipino people its a total LIE !!!. Few of them has a true motive the only motive for them is their Pockets. that Pork is the issue those are the things that makes them run for position.

    What ever it is calling the President as a Lame Duck is just a motive that they don’t want or like what the president is doing so far. Watch Out when they have the THRONE.

    Since they started the UNA coalition, they know that they are the faces of opposition. but part of it is not admitting it because they knew when people clearly see who is who, it will have a negative impact on them. Do you really want to be an opposition to a popular president? Only fools will do that. Even if the VP is also popular, you can’t compare it with the president’s popularity.

    In any politics there’s going to be and will always be an “opposition”.  And that is a fact.  For UNA, NOT admitting that they consider themselves an “opposition” is too early for them to declare their position at this time.  Right now, UNA is just on “image building mode” and will continue to do that until Aquino makes mistakes or see something that UNA can make of it as an issue.  Election campaign has not even started.  Once it start, we will see more of this opposition telling the people a lot of negatives.   And that is why, Mr.Aquino should continue doing his good work.  Let the people be the judge.  Having said this, Mr. Aquino still have a long way to go before he can consider himself successful on his policies.  There are still a lot of things to do and laws to sign and pass.  Specially this F.O.I. which I thought necessary to make the politicians accountable and transparent.  Stop “dynasty” politics.  It is a bad image to the country.   And of course, abolish the “pork barrel” which is the main source of corruptions. 

    The next three years will be the judgement time for Mr. Aquino to show the Filipinos that he’s serious in changing the landscape of politics in the country.  If he’s does not deliver what he has been advocating since he was elected, then it will be a wasted 6 years.  It will also affect his party on the next presidential election.  Remember that there’s an opposition just waiting on the wings.  They will use everything to get into power.  However, Filipinos are now getting smarter and know what is at stake on this coming election.  And they know what these politicians were made of.  UNA has nothing but negative image and Mr. Aquino should use that as an advantage.  Remember, just one big mistake, there goes all the years that Mr. Aquino had worked for……Let good governance continue and Mr. Aquino will for sure see his party win again on the next election.  Otherwise, I can not imagine the alternatives…….
    This is just my analysis .  You can agree with me or not.  It doesn’t matter.  It’s always been dirty politics we have in the Philippines anyway.

    Umaandar na yung mga strategy. Pag hindi inamin ng UNA na oposisyon sila ay parang makakabit din sila sa ibang credit na nagawa ng mga nasa administrasyon na LP. Kapag umangat ang rating ng Pangulo ay baka sakali makasam din sila sa pag-angat.

    Wise din yung UNA na hindi nila dineclare na opposition sila, siguro they wil let the people decide base on their opinyon. Wise din si Drilon kasi nagpainterview siya tungko dito just to say this. Anyways, kani kaniyang strategy, hindi nmn ako solid sa isang partido.

  • where_I_stand

    The Yellow Emperor just arrived from Davos. All his accolades were very satisfied in the 3-day vacation, especially with their Filipino style corned beef breakfast. In Davos, the Yellow Emperor got his new clothes. Everyone in the Palace cannot stop praising the Yellow Emperor for his colorful and beautiful new clothes. Moved by the never-ending laudation and rhapsody from his factotum in the Place and Congress, the Yellow Emperor was overjoyed by the honesty of his subjects.

    Yesterday, the Little Boy Tobi visited the Yellow Emperor. He was told that he was busy visiting every office in the Palace (He’s a very busy man). From one office to the next, Tobi asked where the Yellow Emperor was. The secretary of a secretary told him that the Yellow Emperor visited them and he was busy telling them one by one how he looks like with his new clothes. As expected, everyone told him he’s gorgeous in his colorful new clothes. Finally, Tobi met the Yellow Emperor. Shocked, Tobi asked the Yellow Emperor: “Your Majesty, why are you naked? Where are your clothes?”

    Horrified by this revelation, the Yellow Emperor ran to his room crying…angry. To appease his anger, his yaya played Freddie Aquilar’s collection. Despite his favorite song’s “Estudyante Blues”, the Yellow Emperor started showing his usual tantrum.
    ***
    In the Senate, Big Boy Drilon heard that Little Boy Tobi was mocking the Yellow Emperor as a lame duck. So, he called up the yellow media to schedule an exclusive interview with him. He also ordered the network to interview Tobi as well.
    ***
    During the interview, this was the transcript (in their native language):
    Drilon: Tobi, bakit mo sinabi na lame duck ang ating emperor?

    Tobi: Hindi po namin sinabi directly na lame duck an gating emperor. Kayo ang may sabi niyan, hindi kami.

    Drilon: Tobi, obvious naman ah. Huwag na tayo maglokohan dito.

    Tobi: Kahit na basta hindi namin sinabi directly na lame duck ang ating emperor. Same boat tayo. Bakit ba tayo magsiraan? United, we can do everything. Divided, we do nothing. Kaya nga UNA, United ung U namin.

    Drilon: Basta, dapat ung U niyo palitan niyo ng O for klaron na opposition kayo. Kami ang administration at kayo ang opposition. Iyon ang dapat sa isang democracy, meron administration at meron opposition.

    Tobi: Bakit kami ang opposition? Administration din kami, kasi Noybi kami sa 2010 elections. Noynoy for president; Binay for vice-president. Pareho sila nanalo. Talo ang NoyMar. Mar is LP. Pero si Noynoy hindi na siya LP kasi presidente na siya. He cannot be a president of LP; he must be a president of the people.

    Drilon: Tama ka Tobi. Si GMA nga pala ang opposition. No problem na Tobi. Importante lang naman sa akin na dapat meron administration at meron opposition sa isang democracy.

    When they were about to part ways, Drilon remembered the scandal in the Palace involving the Yellow Emperor visiting each office in the Palace without clothes on him, so he asked Tobi, “Do you know that foolish and stupid boy who told the Yellow Emperor that he was naked? All the people at the Palace were told to pretend that the Yellow Emperor’s new clothes were beautiful even if they see nothing. We told them our golden rule: those who are not with us are against us. The Davos jester sold him the magical clothes worth P49 million pesos.”

    Tobi: I think that boy was courageous and honest enough to tell the truth to the Yellow Empero. I don’t concede that that boy was both foolish and stupid. That P49 million expense for 3-days was so much, what’s the expected return from this very expensive trip abroad?

    The President and his administration have been trying so hard to make it appear that there are significant developments in the country’s status. They have been trying to install in people’s brains that their programs are working. They use that by having catchphrases and attacking their foes as their accomplishments. All these are done for times like these when they are being exposed as a ‘lame duck’.

    akala ko naman ‘lame díck president’ ang sinabi ni mr. sebo

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_E3CE56OQVPC4RPYD2NR4VD3SUE Bert

    It’s not just UNA who is making PNOY LAMEDUCK….It’s his KKK’s who are dragging him down and whose indisposition he is tolerating.

  • PIPOL_rd

    UNA mga sarili lang nila iniisip nyan..lalo na yon 3 kings sa corruption at ganid sa power,bawat anak eh gusto nasa pwesto.BINAY,ESTRADA at si tanda ENRILE.pumili po tayo ng maayos na lider di katulad nila

    Drilon slams UNA for trying to make Aquino ;LAME DUCK’ president..

    Now we have new monicker for Pnoy, LameDuck President.
    Nobody thought about that until now, Thank you Mr.Drillon.
    What an appropriate name….Lameduck Pnoy na Penoy.

    • leomar101

       Really a lame Duck who wackle his  butt and tail and walk likes a Duck. Yes drilly piggy you are right he is a lame duck which do nothing.

  • ed_nique

    lame duck …

    how does the good senator understand this term?

    the way i see it, the fact that UNA did not and will not openly declare itself as the opposition is because they cannot afford to openly go against the administration. undeniably the president enjoys a high level of support from the people and will be in office for the next three years. therefore, they figure that they can ill afford to be known as against the administration for their own political survival. they are “forced” to cooperate.

    in my understanding that is not being a lame duck.

  • Your_King

    I don’t know if “lame duck” is the accurate description. Since Drillon is about calling a spade a spade then let’s call Aquino what he is…or let’s describe him as a person who came into office with a lot of promises but is failing short on them. He says he’s concerned for the Philippines but the only thing he is concerned with are his personal and politically motivated agendas along with his KKK.

  • joshua kings

    not that i like the LP but if UNA wins in 2013 and binay becomes the next president in 2016, better say goodbye now to all the good things that has been happening to and in the country since Pnoy took over from gma.  balik-gma-style of corruption with impunity na naman….
    gusto ba ninyo yan?
    God forbid….

  • sigena

    drilon hindi to lokohana dahil lokoloko ka na

  • Paliwaweng

    You are right Mr. Drilon.
    A year or two from now, all these political vultures will sing hossana with Pinoy and claim that they are part of the success brought out by his implemented reforms.
    Am happy that regardless of what these trapos are doing, the president is steadfast in his resolve to uplift us from the quagmire of poverty, though much works are left to be done, his sincerity is finding its mark and created an atmosphere of trust among majority of Filipinos and serves as an impetus for change for a better Philippines.

    As a living testament, foreign investor’s trust in our country is on the rise.

    Dapat kasi tanggalin na yang si Binay sa cabinet ni President Noynoy,. .  nangangampanya na yan sa halip na magtrabaho. .  yung lakad nila sa Cebu. . . bakit pinalampas yon ni President Noynoy ? . .

    Trying “to make” Nhoynhoy a lame-duck president… how can you make Nhoynhoy a lame-duck president when he is already a lame-duck? Funny Drilon is bootl*cking.

  • Kiro Nazakato

    Kahit anong gawin ko, di ko matanngap na posible maging presidente eto malignong 2. Napakaplastic ng dating. Nakakabit sa laylayan ni pinoy, samantalang ang partido nyang una, panay criticize kay pnoy. tapos sasabihin kaalyado sila administrasyon. nagtataka rin akona itong Tobyng to ginawang spokesman ng UNA. Una, walang personalidad. Pangalawa, di naman magaling magsalita. Walang alam kubdi magcriticize sa administrasyon. Pakawala 2 ni binay para sirain c pinoy, para mawalan credibility pa inendoso nya si roxas sa 2016! Basang basa diskarte nitong malignong 2! nagtataka akobakit di pa sinisipa ni pinoy 2 sa cabinite! binigyan pa 200 millions cdf na segrurado gagamitin nya pangangampanya, at paninira kay pinoy!

    Napagkasunduan ng malignong trapo na may hiwagang bumalot kung paano siya yumaman, at ang lasenggero, babaero at sugarol na trapo at kasama ang pinakamatandang chickboy sa senado ang pagbuo ng isang political party (UNA) na ang ultimong layunin ay maging mga senador ang kani-kanilang mga anak…

  • richard ortega

    mga plipinong nagbabasa ng inquirer ay alam ang mga mangyayari sa bayan pag UNA party members ang mga nanalo, ang problema ilan lang ang pilipino na ganito ang isip laban sa pilipino na nababayaran ang boto, lalo na sa metro manila squatter area.

       Sipsip partido…

  • okayayonip

    TTiangco buking na denial pa, walang ibang maisip na paraan upang ibenta ang UNA (UNAhan sa pagnanakaw) kasi 3 political monsters ang bumubuo nito kontra sa LP headed by P-Noy na mataas ang rating sa publiko. kung ang inaasikaso mo ba naman ay ang maagang pagresolba sa kaso ni ruby rose barrameda ang babaing pinatay, inilagay sa drum, binusan ng kongkreto at inihulog dyan sa may port ninyo ay baka hangaan pa kita.

  • Guest

    Please return the loots you got from Enrile.

  • Taiko_Kauna

    ang gusto ni Tiangco may maiiwang progreso si Pnoy para daw may mamanain ng susunod na pangulo na walang iba kundi si Binay. Nako malaking mananakaw ang grupong ito kapag malaking surplus sa kaban ng bayan ang maiiwan ni pnoy. Hindi naman seguro ganon katanga ang mamamayan, lalo na ang taga Makati kung paano yumaman si Binay at ang kanyang buong angkan. Dahil kung patas na tao ito, kahit mag sirko-balentong pa ito mula 1986 hanggang ngayon hindi pa rin niya kayang tumakbo ng bise presidente sa gastosing kailanganin para sa posisyon. Matinik si Binay, napag-aralan niyang mabuti ang methodology ni Marcos at ini-improve pa niya!  Ngayon, siya ba ang kailangan nating magpatuloy sa naipundar ni Pnoy?

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_E3CE56OQVPC4RPYD2NR4VD3SUE Bert

      Kung ganon pala ang maitim na balak ni Nognog laban kay Pnoy, bakit di pa rin sinipa sa gabinite? Dahil LAMEDUCK nga si Pnoy?

  • joeybg

    Siguradong mananalo ang UNA sa eleksiyon dahil marami na silang ipamimigay na Noodles, Sardinas at bigas sa mga Bobo-tante, dami kasing Tanga dito sa Pinas kaya hindi umasenso.

    Makati at San Juan solid sa UNA…. solid sa Katangahan, maawa kayo sa sarili ninyo.

    Pag ang kandidato ay nakalinya sa Opposition ibig sabihin kalaban mo ang Administration bakit ka pa sumali sa opposition kung ang prinsipyo mo nasa administration pwera lang kung ikaw ay bading.

  • zeroko

    Lame Duck naman talaga is PNoy. Magaling lang siya sa PPP or Public Private Partnership, ang mag buy and sell government assets. This is grossly disadvantageous to the entire Filipino people. Kawatan ng mga arri-arian ng mga Pinoy. Practically, he has committed an act of TREASON. But in the Philippines, mga bobo ang mga mamamayan. They just allow him to do his dirty tricks.

    Latest victim of privatization is the Orthopedics center located in Banawe. All the Chinese investors will do is to borrow money in the banks, and presto! May business na sila. Ganyan ang ginagawa ng mga Chinese sa loob ng gobyerno natin, benta lahat ng kayamanan ng Pilipino.

    Mga bobo, gising na kayong lahat! He he he. joke lang, walang pikunan.

  • cry_freedom

    Ang UNA, as one Tagalog saying goes, gustong mamangka sa dalawang ilog.

  • bisdakis

    But these LP leaders are scared because BINAY is supported by some members of their own party and Aquino clan. If for three years of Pnoy’s presidency we moved forward, it is partly because of the present political alignment, where BINAY, who’s from UNA, works with PNOY in tandem. Just because 2016 is in the offing, with the upcoming local elections as the starting point, some LP leaders want the present set up to be broken.

  • nieron

    Itong Si TIANGCO  na to, ever since he doesn’t have the peoples trust. Sorry for his Navotas constituents but he always wanted a ‘Grandstanding” In our native parlance EPAL, Kapal Mukha, walang hiya.

    Good luck to UNA and their Secretary General Tobias Tiangco! Hope you get the people’s TRUST!

  • boybakal

    Drilon slams UNA for trying to make Aquino ‘lame duck’ president…

    Drilon is a very smart man.
    He was a cabinet of Marcos, served with different presidents.
    He knows the caliber of every President.
    And coming from his mouth not UNA that Pnoy is a Lame Duck President.
