Politics snaps Estrada-Escudero ties

DAVAO CITY—Not just a tiny crack but a serious fracture.

This is what has emerged in the relationship between former President Joseph Estrada and his godchild, reelectionist Sen. Francis Escudero, after the United Nationalist Alliance (UNA) dropped Escudero from its Senate lineup.

Escudero told reporters on Wednesday night he had received word his godfather was now campaigning against him. While he acknowledged that Estrada had the right to support the candidates he preferred, Escudero issued a subtle warning in Filipino about not simply taking the matter lying down.

Escudero also noted that Estrada had yet to make good on his promise made in the media to continue campaigning for Grace Poe after she was kicked out of UNA’s Senate list.

Poe, however, told reporters she was already thankful that Estrada had not issued any statement against her and that he even described her as “inaanak ko (my goddaughter).”

“For me, that is already enough,” Poe said.

No time for Chiz

The 75-year-old Estrada on Thursday took offense at Escudero’s claim that he was campaigning against the senator.

“I don’t even mention his name during sorties so how could I campaign against him? I have no time for him,” Estrada said in Filipino in a phone interview.

Estrada, who said he was preoccupied with his own mayoral campaign in Manila, pressed on: “Maybe he just wants to win attention (sumikat) and so he tries to ruin my name.”

Estrada challenged Escudero to identify the source of his information. “He should name names,” he said.

Estrada said Escudero might have felt bad when he announced that he would still campaign for Poe “in my personal capacity” even if UNA had dropped her.

Rumors of strained relations between the two men started even before UNA announced it was dropping Escudero, along with former movie classification chairperson Poe and Sen. Loren Legarda, from its Senate slate.

Before the announcement, UNA spokesman Rep. Tobias Tiangco had warned that the alliance was displeased with the three candidates’ refusal to join its campaign sorties.

Escudero, Poe and Legarda are official candidates of the administration’s Team PNoy. UNA, however, had adopted them as guest candidates given their close ties with stalwarts in UNA.

“We heard that apart from the decision of President Estrada to drop me, he is also now campaigning against me. I am not sure, however, whether he is also campaigning against the others (Poe and Legarda),” Escudero said in an ambush interview.

“While I recognize that he is within his rights and I continue to respect him, we cannot just take it lying down (hindi naman puwede kaming humiga lamang at hindi gumalaw at tanggapin na lang iyon),” he added.

Possible retaliation?

“Each one of us has his strategy (diskarte) as far as the campaign is concerned. We will do what we need to do, especially when we hear news like that,” Escudero said.

His statement was seen in some quarters as a mild warning about possible retaliation. Escudero, however, would not make any categorical statement about this.

Escudero said he was “saddened” and “surprised” when UNA announced the deletion of the three guest candidates from its slate.

“We understood that we could not make demands but if the (UNA stalwarts) really wanted to retain us in the lineup, they can always find a reason to do so,” he said. “If they don’t want us there, they can also issue reasons, no matter how shallow these are.”

Escudero mentioned Estrada and Vice President Jejomar Binay—who received a boost in his 2010 campaign following Escudero’s endorsement—as among the supposed Three Kings who could easily influence decisions within UNA.

“I think that’s the reason why they are called ‘kings.’ You do not leave important decisions to the minions,” the senator said.

Strain began 2010

The strain between Estrada and Escudero apparently goes back to the campaign for the 2010 presidential election.

Estrada recalled he had initially invited Escudero to be his running mate but the senator rejected the proposal and supposedly told him, “It’s the presidency or nothing.”

Estrada said he then tapped Binay to take Escudero’s place but Escudero supposedly came back to him and said he was accepting the offer.

Estrada said this was after Escudero failed to get the backing of former Ambassador Eduardo “Danding” Cojuangco of the Nationalist People’s Coalition.

“By that time, I could no longer accommodate him because I had given my word to Mayor Binay,” Estrada said. “If I were a shrewd politician, I could have dropped Binay and just told him to run for senator. But I have word of honor.”

Escudero ended up supporting then Sen. Benigno Aquino for president and Binay for vice president.

    Si Chiz magaling lamang mag pa pogi kaya popular sa marami. Pero sa Corona impeachment trial parang nasilayan kung ano ang mga lihim na agenda niya tungkol sa tunay na relasyon niya sa mga Marcos, at Arroyo. Maingat na maingat siya sa pag alaga ng kanyang political image pero kung ganyang wala namang kongkretong nakikita ang taong bayan malabo ang ambisyon niyang maging presidente.

    Unfortunately Escudero runs not as a public servant but merely for a job. Isn’t it what all these candidates for public office are anyway? To be on government payroll is the most lucrative and stable job to have nowadays. An ordinary businessman makes every effort to make his business float in this hard economic times, but a government worker and official pretend to work hard at taxpayers’ expense. What a cheapskate! The most embarassing job to have nowadays is to work for the PH government. Mga parasites sa hikapos na taong bayan. Nakakahiya. Magaral ka nang mabuti subali’t iyong bobo at may kakilala ay nasa gobierno at sa lubos na swerte mataas pa ang suweldo sa iyo sa bandang huli. Hirap naman ang gobierno subalit bakit kaya magpasahod ng mas mataas at taon-taon magbigay ng bonus pa? Halata taliwas ang palakad ng gobierno. Taon-taon parang ayos lang na nangyayari ito. Di ka ba bilib sa ating pamahalaan? Nakakahiya.

    • vince_bugaboo

  • Noypi11

    As polls show, getting the support of convicted plunderer Estrada is a liability, Estrada, Enrile and Binay group is the reason why UNA candidates are losing. It’s much better for Legarda, Poe and Escudero to drop the  three kurakot kings if they want to win.

    • speaksoftlylove

       
      Wala namang naawang magreply sayo kaya ako na lang ang papatos.

      “Polls show” ka dyan, polpol show kamo. Lahat ng campaign sorties ng adminstrasyon ay nilalangaw. Lagi pang wala si escudera at mga sikat ng kandidato nila ay wala kahit nandoon si PNoy. Psarang jinx si PNoy at umiiwas ang mga kumag. Si Magsasysay, Jr at Jamby Madrigal lang ang consistent na nandoon. Lalo na sa Cebu. Bukidnon  at Cagayan de Oro City, kung saan taga doon pa si Koko Pimentel na kandidato nila ay namuraot sila ng husto. Ikumpara mo sa campaign rallies ng UNA, lahat ay dinudumog kahit walang artista.

  • catmanjohn

    I always knew Escudero couldn’t be trusted. Any candidate with past or present ties with Estrada, the guy who gives Philippine politics its laughingstock reputation, whether it be bogus or real, will inevitably have future ties to him. All of the cancer must be removed, or it will return.

  • 2rey3

    Why? Did Estrada mention about rice smuggling which is one of the hottest issues now in the Senate? If Estrada did mention it , then the concerned government personalities  should be really worried!

    Nagsolian na ng kandila ang dalawang angkan na mga loyal kay Marcos. In fairness, mas lamang ng paligo si escudero kung pagka political putatsing lang ang paguusapan. Tingnan nyo yang si escudero dati KBL sila, pero nang mawala si marcos nagtayo ng NPC si Danding Cojuangco at syempre doon kay Danding dumikit ang mga loyalists ni marcos, nangunguna na ang mga escudero. Pero nang di pinagbigyan ni Danding ang ambisyon niyang maging presidente hayun nag independent na lang si escudero. Tapos nabuhay ulit ang ambisyon at sumanib sa UNA at sinubmarino si Roxas kasama ang mga kapatid ni PNoy. zyong Roxas naman di msintindihan kung bakit dumikit pa rin kay PNoy kashit siunubmarino na siya ng mga kapatid. Siguro dahil over acting president siya ngayon. Nang makamoy na humina na si Roxas ayun at dumikit kay PNoy. Sa tingin siguro niya mas may tsansa siyang maging official presidential candidate ni PNoy sa 2016. Pero ang hudas ay ang UNA ang sinisisi na dinilete na raw siya sa listahan ng presidentiales in 2016. The bottom line here is the split of erap and escudero is all about the latter’s presidential ambition. Kung ano ano pang pakulo ang kinukwento nitong political tikbalang par excellence.

    Noon kasi kasikatan pa ng mga pelikula ni Erap kaya dire-diretso ang ratsada niya mula sa pagkamayor, senador, vice president hanggang maging presidente. Noon yon ngayon ay hindi na papanood ng mga tao ang kanyang pelikula. Ewan ko kung manalo pa siyang mayor… Parehas lang sila ni GMA parehong dating presidente at muling kumandidato sa mababang pwesto kasi pareho silang sakim sa kapangyarihan. Itong si Erap gurang na pero adik pa rin sa kapangyarihan. Yan ang tipikal na gustong magtatag ng politikal dynasty, isama na rin ang 2 pang co-founder ng UNA na pare-pareho silang letter J ang pangalan Jejomar Binay, Joseph Estrada at Juan Ponce Enrile. Ganon din ang kanilang mga anak Jackie Enrile, JV at Jinggoy Estrada at Jojo Binay. They all represnt letter J as in Judas Escariot…

    Of course they should be campaigning against each other. They are now from opposing camps. Whats the news?

    I see, the news is that these candidates cannot let ideology (if any) and political programs (if any) transcend their personal relationship.

    Kaya walang nagyayari sa ting mga pilipino. Tanawan ng utang na loob at very sensitive sa sasabihin ng kumpare, ninong, kamaganak, at the detriment of the millions of Filipino whose interest they pledged to uphold.

    Or at least dapat pag ganitong klaseng balita, ilagay na lang sa Entertainment section ng Inquirer.

    Kaya kung kabarkada, kaibigan, kumpare, at kamaganak ka nya, no would blame you if you would want him to be in power.

    Why do we have to suffer PIGS? We, the STUPID, UNTHINKING, CLUELESS, UNDISCERNING, VOTERS ONLY have ourselves to BLAME, because we NEVER LEARN; we keep voting for PIGS every election time!!!

     “I think that’s the reason why they are called ‘kings.’ You do not leave important decisions to the minions,” the senator said.

     Chiz, think no more, they are called KINGS because, KINGS of PLUNDER . . . KINGS of CORRUPTION . . . KINGS of POLITICAL DYNASTY must CONTROL EVERYTHING otherwise the MINIONS will UNSEAT them, and they (minions) in term enjoy the fruits of PLUNDER, CORRUPTION, POLITICAL DYNASTY to the exclusion of the kings!!

    Now, do you understand why Binay, Estrada, Enrile CAN ONLY DEVELOP their CHILDREN as HEIRS? Developing LEADERS OUTSIDE their FAMILY is a THREAT to their KINGSHIP; they might not be able to CONTROL these leaders FOR LONG!!!

    Mr. Estrada, a notorious name is your comeuppance. From a dark cave you tread toward another chance in politics – to lie, steal and deceive. No repentance for your malfeasance, yet you seek mayoralty position to sustain your piggy lifestyle. Mr. Escudero, you sucked up for popularity as always. Euphemism doesn’t hide your pomposity; you put others down to climb up. Scorned by your friends in UNA as you sweet talk with your enemies in LP; alone is called a wily politician with many colors (like many more others).

    Who is Erap Estrada? He is one of the leaders of UNA together with Binay & JPE.  His track records:  Drunkard, adulterer, jueting lord, convicted plunderer, political dynasty, stocks trading
    manipulator using GSIS/SSS funds, involved together with Lacson in the murder of Dacer/Corbito.
    Is this the kind of leadership UNA has to offer?  With the kind of leaders (Erap, Binay & Enrile)
    do you expect “gaganda ang buhay natin” or “gaganda ang buhay nila”?  There is a big (repeat BIG, BIG) gap between their track records vs.what they are saying.  Repeat for the nth time, “BEHAVIOR DOES NOT LIE.”

    Between erap and chix – I’ll choose the former due to his steadfast principles and pakikisama, attitudes that can’t be found on escudero – a proven opportunist and political butterfly, like loren.

  • boybakal

    What I love in Erap is…He is a good mentor.
    When he sees young talent, he helps, mentor, guide and gives full support.
    Remember when he called young congressmen then as Bright boys and Spice boys.
    As President then, he in a way built a name for them.
    o
    That is one thing you will like in Erap, he has a knack in young intelligent talented kids.
    He is very helpful especially to young aspiring men.
    Though he fathered so many children, he is a good provider and give them not only good but quality education.
    If I am right, most his children finished university degree here and abroad.

    Erap might be called a drunkard and womanizer but he compensates by not abandoning but providing them the very best.
    Don’t look at the face of Erap as drunk and womanizer but what is inside in him, his heart, he has a very big heart that helps.

      i would never vote erap to any elected position.  but it is worthwhile to note that he was the only president who won with a large margin without any taint of cheating.  he won big time alright, and he should have been given  the chance to complete his term.  after all, it was only erap who retained performing cabinet members from previous (opposing) administration; never appointed a retired general into any cabinet position; appointed a clergy as DepEd secretary;  appointed a bonafide NPA commander as DAR secretary.  it is so easy and convenient to caricature erap as moron, idiot, stupid and all, but the man deserves credit somehow.  a last tidbit, erap was forced out of office mainly due to JUETENG payola.  ERAP was out but JUETENG remained, up to this writing.  likewise, jueteng started to gain nationwide operation during CORY’s term.  during the MARCOS regime, jueteng and masiaw were just mere local number games in some localities that they did not even register in the conciousness of the nation……not until we kicked MACOY with his dollar stash.
