Revilla’s backing won’t sway Teddy Casiño

Teddy Casiño: Grateful but not joining Lakas-Christian Muslim Democrats. INQUIRER FILE PHOTO

SAN PEDRO, Laguna—Independent senatorial candidate Teddy Casiño on Monday said the endorsement he received from Sen. Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr. should not be construed as an indication that he would be joining the political party of former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo.

Casiño said he was grateful for Revilla’s support but joining the Lakas-Christian Muslim Democrats (CMD) was “highly unlikely, (as a) matter of principle.”

“Ang usapan namin ni Bong (Revilla), sa Cavite lang (Revilla and I only talked about Cavite) because that’s his bailiwick,” Casiño said in a phone interview Monday.

He said he had not received a formal invitation from the party to be its guest candidate.

Casiño, a former party-list representative of the militant Bayan Muna, is a known critic of the Arroyo administration. Arroyo is chairperson emeritus of Lakas-CMD.

Lakas-CMD recently named Revilla, who is reportedly being groomed to be its standard bearer in 2016, as the party chairman.

“It was made on his (Revilla) personal capacity,” Casiño said of Revilla’s open endorsement of his senatorial bid at an event in Dasmariñas, Cavite, on Sunday.

Revilla’s son Jolo is running for vice governor of the vote-rich province.

Lacking hefty campaign funds, Casiño has resorted to alternative campaign strategies, such as “Takbo ni Teddy, Takbo ng Karaniwang Tao” (Teddy’s run is the common people’s run) to win votes.

He was in Calamba City, Laguna, on Friday and later that evening at the annual February Fair at the University of the Philippines Los Baños (UPLB), from which he graduated.

    “Ang usapan namin ni Bong (Revilla), sa Cavite lang (Revilla and I only talked about Cavite) because that’s his bailiwick,” Casiño said in a phone interview Monday.

    Fish is caught by its mouth, a man by his word.  What a typical segurista!  You don’t like a nationwide endorsement by Bong because you know it’s a kiss of death but you want a Nardong  Putik endorsement in Cavite country because it is his bailwick.  LOL!  So this is how you are made of.  This is one vote less for you.  Amen!

        MAY pruweba ka ba ng sinabi mong yan, o…..nakikisakay ka lang sa naririnig mo?  Hindi ko peresonal ba kakilala si TCasino, pero ayon sa nababasa ko sa mga ginagawa nya at sa educational background at attainmtent nya, wala sa kalinkingan ang mga NTL na Revilla, Lapid, estrada, at Sotto kahit na matagal na sila sa senado…na walang ginagawa kungi ang magpo-porma.  Ganunpaman, I respect your decision and may the best man win.

      • branstark

        eto na naman po ako.. magpapaliwanag ng ibig sabihin ng “sympathizer”. ndi po ibig sabihin nun n NPA siya dahil wala nga akong ebidensya. pero nakikisimpatiya sha.. obvious n siguro ung simpatiya niya sa kaliwa. ndi nya nga madenounce yang armed struggle n un. un me ebidensya ko dhil lagi nya sinasabi sa interview.

        ayaw ko s kanya dahil ayoko sa idolohiya ng kaliwa na sinusuportahan nya. ayoko sa kanya dahil hindi nya man lang masabi ng ayaw nya ng paraan ng kaliwa na puro karahasan. ayoko sa kaliwa!!! puro karahasan, puro kontra. wala din naman silang solution n pabor sa lahat.. puro pabor s kanila at idolohiya nila.

        ikaw kilala mo ba yang sinusuportahan mo? sinusuportahan mo ba ang idolohiya nyang makakaliwa? isipin mo mabuti ang isasagot mo.

    It is a pity dahil magaling sana kung hindi Idol ni Ka Teddy ang  Communist Principle. So mga kababayan  huwag magkamali bomoto ng isang taong  ang idealismo  ay against  democracy
    Once, for almost twenty (20 )years we had been under  such  UNDEMOCRATIC  leadership, kaya kawawa ang Pilipinas kung boboto tayo ng isang nagworship ng communism ideology. Dalawa na sila  na sa palagay ko who also Idolize Communistic  Ways,kaya huwag iboto  si Risa Hontiveros na iyan.

    • http://www.facebook.com/worldcomjapan WorldcomJapan Tokyo

       @estee muri Sa palagay mo ba ay hindi kawawa ang Pilipinas sa kasalukuyan.. yung definition mo ng democracy ay matagal nang meron tayo after EDSA 1.. mukha bang may nagbago? ano po ba ang Communist principle na sinasabi niyo? wag natin punahin ang hindi naiintindihan at alam..

  • catmanjohn

    Revilla is the kiss of death… the stench of Gloria is too strong on him. Those who carelessly slander Casino as a stooge of China and a commie are misguided devious fear mongers. He’s more of a European socialist than a Chinese Communist. He would be a good thing for the diversity of ideas the PH senate badly needs.

  • where_I_stand

    Ted, ituloy mo ang laban,
    karaniwang tao ang gabay mo tungo sa makabuluhang pagbabago.
    Teddy Casino para sa senado!

  • bryanbrian

    Sya daw ang independent candidate? alternative? Yon pala wala ring pinagkaiba!hahaha!

    Trapo din!!

    Ngayon naka tali ka na sa mga revilla. alangan namang ibang presiddential candidate ang tutulungan ni casino sa 2016.

  • kulittwit

    Alam na natin ang totoong kulay ni casino.

  • Rolly257

    Never in the history of the Philippine politics that a winning independent candidate remains an  independent.

  • Rolly257

    Si Saturnino Ocampo na akala mo maka masa, pero nag pakasangkapan kay Gloria at sa Partido KBL.

  • DinngMae

    Courageous.

    This is what I can say of Teddy Casino for taking the bull by its horn. Traditional politics is the playground of the powerful elite and no one, from the middle class and below, dared to challenge the rich people.

    From a street parliamentarian to Congress, Casino stood out from the unprincipled and corrupt members of the House. His political platform which bears the welfare of the people had been carried out albeit not to the fullest.

    I do not consider Casino as an alternative candidate. Casino is a people candidate. The one who came from within the ranks of the common tao. It will be an uphill battle for this person who would bring along with him the task to fight for the rights of the people.

    I will vouch, support, and vote for this candidate.

  • garcia677

    Traditional politics or what but never will I vote for a communist like Casinio. Their object is to topple down the government and change it to communism. The militant Bayan Muna is an adjunct and a communist political front. What did Bayan Muna give to our country to merit our votes nothing good but rallies on the streets just to showboat and justify their financial allocations coming from Europe for without these troubles they create, these said allocations shall be cut off. Their hidden scheme of employing as a trick the face of human rights abuses is the kernel to their existence in so far as support from abroad is concern. These militant groups Bayan muna headed by Casinio as one of them exist because of their malicious used of the term human rights abuses perpetrated by the government and that’s the main reason why concerned people from Europe pool their resources to fund them but in reality the goal of these communist due to their ideology is to change our present set up.
