Are Filipinos ready for a Vice President Kristeta in 2016?

Retired Archbishop Oscar Cruz on Tuesday urged the camp of actress Kris Aquino to clarify reports that she planned to run for the second highest public office in the land in the 2016 national elections.

The former head of the Archdiocese of Lingayen-Dagupan said President Benigno Aquino III’s youngest sister should clarify the reports because they continued to spread, especially after she announced last month that she was quitting show biz and planning to study law.

He said he heard of Kris’ political plans from “credible sources within the administration” as early as three months ago.

“Formerly, it was only in whispers. Now, it has become more commonly said and heard that the youngest sister of the President of the Republic will also run as Vice President of the Republic come 2016,” Cruz said in an interview.

“Those concerned better address this matter. If it is not true, then they should say it so that it will stop once and for all. If there is silence, that means there is consent,” he added.

Ninoy’s charisma

The 42-year-old Kris—Kristina Bernadette Cojuangco Aquino in real life and referred to by some columnists as “Kristeta”—is the youngest daughter of the late President Corazon Aquino and martyred democracy icon Sen. Benigno “Ninoy” Aquino Jr.

Of the five Aquino children, it is Kris who is said to have inherited Ninoy’s charisma.

Cruz said he saw “nothing wrong” with Kris running for public office, adding that she has a big chance of winning because of her popularity as an actress.

“It is OK because it takes so little requirement to be a public official in this country. You are (just required to be) a Filipino citizen and you know how to read and write,” Cruz said.

“I’m not saying she’s not capable. As I said, if she’s going to run, let her run because it takes so little to qualify for public office from the local to the national level,” he said. “I have no preference and who am I to tell her what to do?”

Issue of dynasties

Kris’ problems with her estranged husband, basketball star James Yap, again came to light last month when she sought a temporary protection order against him after he supposedly made sexual advances on her when he visited her condo last December. She also said she was leaving show business.

Cruz said Kris’ plan to go to law school would strengthen her political credentials.

“If she will take courses, that will better prepare her for public office, especially in the national level, that’s good. I have nothing against that,” he said.

According to Cruz, however, the prospect of having another Aquino occupying one of the highest positions in the land soon after President Aquino’s term ends in 2016 could be dismaying for many in light of civil society’s campaign against political dynasties.

“The dynasty issue will be more affirmed. Will we ever change?” Cruz said. But he also said Kris’ supposed plan to run for Vice President might still change.

The earlier, the better

“I’m just saying that up to now, this is what is being said. My friends tell me this and I just listen. So what I’m now saying is, whether it is true or not, (Kris’ camp should) say it as it is,” Cruz said.

“If up to now this is not stopped … it might be interpreted as in aid of (her) election. And that’s not fair,” he added.

Cruz also noted that during the Requiem Mass for the late President Corazon Aquino in 2009, Kris pointedly said that only she and her brother then Senator Aquino “remained” in the public limelight, their three other sisters being  very private persons.

“Kris said, ‘Noy, only the two of us remain.’ I remember that very, very well. ‘What will happen now that only the two of us remain?’” Cruz said. “Now when I hear this (rumor of her plan to run for vice president) … it seems (her statement) was loaded.”

“As I said, the earlier you clarify this, the better,” Cruz said.

    Eh ano pakialammo Padre Damaso kung gusto nga nya tatakbo vice president? Mag-paalam sa iyo? Sino ka ba – tatay ng lahat ng mga Pilipino?

    Dapat ang atupaginmo ay ang spiritual at moral na condition ng mga Katoliko para naman sa unang pagkakataon e focus ka na sa dahilan kung bakit naging pareka at hindi yong buhay ng may buhay.

    • smith wesson

      ganyan ba ang pagpapalaki sa yo ng magulang mo, walang respeto. tumanda ka ng walang modo. kung ano man and problema mo sa buhay, yan ang dapat mong asikasuhin, lalo na ang paggalang.

      • brunogiordano

        Ang mga pari at obispo DAMASO ay hindi na talagang dapat irespeto ngayon.

        Ang mga nagtatangol na lang sa mga pari at obispo ay iyong ilan mga alipin ng mga DAMASO na maka-DAMASO.

      • CommonSens6

        You will reap what you sow! Now is always a good time to
        examine yourself if you indeed are holier. WE are all
        sinners… that’s the nature of being human. Please do not attack
        Christ and the institution who only preaches goodness and love.

        Cheers!

      • barako22

        please enlightened me, why attack on priest and cardinals became attacking jesus christ? kelan pa naging jesus christ ang mga pari at obispo?

      • CommonSens6

        The titles of priests, bishops and cardinals are privileges bestowed to the chosen by the grace of God thru the Church. If you are disrespecting them for rendering the duties then you are disrespecting Christ. The institution = Christ does not sin… you may persecute the man but not the priest and the bishop in him. At least that was what I was taught growing up.

        The question is if you believe in Christ– do you? I didn’t think so, so what does it matter? Cheers!

      • brunogiordano

        Ang mga pari at obispong DAMASO ang DISRESPECTFUL na nagpapangap na pari at obispo sa tunay na pari at obispo.

        Sa inilalahad ng bagong POPE madali ng makilala ng lahat ang mga DAMASONG pari at obispo.

        Maka-DAMASOng tunay na lang ang hindi makakakilala sa kanila.

      • CommonSens6

        O sige iboto mo si idol mo just make sure you wear condoms and I will pray you are forgiven!

      • brunogiordano

        Ang pedophile sins forgivable sa VATICAN, hindi ang pagamit ng condoms o pills ng mga BABAE.

      • CommonSens6

        Even killing a human being or a prostitute could be forgiven if you are truly repentant that’s what I learned! It’s not too late for you sir. Repent and thou shall see paradise! BTW I’m not a born-again Christian but I am not ashamed of being a Catholic and I only answer to God, country and family! Cheers!

      • brunogiordano

        “but I am not ashamed of being a Catholic ”

        GOOD!!!

        Kung Ikaw ay isang PROGRESSIVE/LIBERAL catholic na marunong magisip ng sarili at hindi pinaniniwalaan ang lahat ng kasinugalingan ng mga pari at obispong DAMASO.

        Ang mga pari at obispo na hindi DAMASO ay may kridibilidad sa mga katolikong PROGRESSIVE/LIBERAL.

        Ang mga CONSERVATIVE/FUNDAMENTALIST na katoliko ay hindi nila matangap na iilan na lang sila at pinabubulaanan na mas marami na ngayon ang mga PROGRESSIVE/LIBERAL Catholics.

      • CommonSens6

        I’m Catholic but I’m pro-RH Law. Cheers!

      • Human Intelligence

        You know for someone who calls himself CommonSense6, you sure do lack a lot of it. Cheers!

      • CommonSens6

        Yes, you point one finger at me three fingers are pointing at you!
        Have a nice day!

      • mamer2

        “Kung Ikaw ay isang PROGRESSIVE/LIBERAL catholic na marunong magisip ng sarili…”
        Isn’t this self-contradictory…?

      • AntiAko

        You obviously were taught wrong, man. Being a priest, bishop or cardinal is something a person chooses to do. Respecting Christ is also something something one chooses to do. When priests, bishops or cardinals father children or molest boys then they clearly are disrespecting Christ. As such, I hate to think that they have been chosen by “the grace of God thru the Church.”

        Only Christ is holy and without sin. The Church is but a human institution and is bound to commit sin. For wasn’t it written that ALL have sinned and fallen short of the Glory of God? Heck, even the Pope is a sinner by this statement.

      • CommonSens6

        Obviously you you don’t come to believe and more clearly you have
        nothing but disrespect for Christians and your logic is plainly
        “simplistic”. Now I am not better or pure at heart than my brother but a
        Christian way of life is to love your brother and preach peace and not
        hatred. Man has sinned since God made Adam the first man–if you believe in God at all. You can interpret the Christian teachings anyway you want that’s you prerogative but calling the Catholic Church a “human institution” it is not. Catholics hold that the “Church” was founded by Jesus Christ in 1AD in Judea ergo the Church is not man made but God made and its holy existence is not contingent upon the followers and no matter how you persecute the believers just like in the time of Daniel the Church as founded by Christ will survive until the 2nd coming. Priests and bishops and all men sin because they are men and they are not perfect because only God is perfect. Now you can lock up or hang all the priests and bishops and the Pope who broke the law I have no problem with that and they should be and I have no issues either if they lose their status as ministers or priest Christ’s Church will still be there. Cheers!

      • boy_kurimaw

        Ang mga pari mismo ang bumabastos sa kabanalan ng panginoon. dapat sa kanila magturo nalang ng kabutihan at pagmamahal sa kapwa, eh puro pakikiaalam sa gobyero at tsismis ang nalalaman nila. siguro kung bibigyan din sila ng pajero ni pnoy baka tumahimik pa sila… pajero pajero lang yan brad hahaha

      • CommonSens6

        Pare, tama ka. Pero sa akin lang when I go to church I only seek the “Lord” not the priest and his opinion. Heck I’ve been going to church
        for over 50 years… I already heard everything and made up my mind what to do. Nandiyan ako para manampalataya at hindi maghahanap ng opinion ng pari at ang pinapakinggan ko lang ang yung magaling mag homily at may contemporary analysis. Talking about tsismis ,lahat naman ng Pilipino may pagkahilig sa “tsismis” and mangtuliksa…hindi maiiwasan yan. Pero nasa yo na yan kung maniwala ka.

      • Sinugba

        Equating Priest and Bishops to Jesus Christ and do not sin is a far cry from the teaching of the church that everyone are born sinners. The Priest and Bishops are men with all their strengths and weaknesses. Nothing more and nothing less.

      • CommonSens6

        “Equating priests and bishops to Jesus Christ” is blasphemy!

      • Human Intelligence

        Nature of being human is to sin? Have your head examined by a professional.

        Cheers!

      • CommonSens6

        I am a professional, sir! Or have you not sinned and will sin again
        that I will stake all my worldly belongings!

      • boy_kurimaw

        Kung ang mga pari ay nagtuturo lamang ng kabutihan at pagmamahal sa kapwa ay malaking RESPETO ang makukuha nila sa sambayanang pilipino…. pero ano ang nababasa natin sa mga diyaryo. Puro pamumulitika ang nalalaman nila at tsismis… PAJERO PAJERO lang yan brad.

    • Euan Mac

      yeah agree.. very convincing statement!

    • billy gunner

      eh ano naman ang pakialam mo kung ganun ang reaksyon ni cruz bat ka rin nakikialam sa buhay ng may buhay?

  • accapistrano

    It is not that which goes in the mouth of men that hurt him, it is what comes out. Credibility declines every time he comments on everything. Must be a fan of Hawking, master of the theory of everything.

  • cato_the_younger

    If she decides to run, let her. While I find her personal life tacky, I actually find her candor quite refreshing not to mention she is quite erudite and expresses herself very well. Given the proper political tutelage, the lady has the potential to be a good public official. I will take Kris Aquino over the Bong Revillas and Lito Lapids of this blighted land any time.

    • kulittwit

      Archbishop gusto mo rin malaman kung totoong tatakbong vice president si vilma santos or president si bong revilla?

      • mamer2

        Worth mentioning is also Bong-Bong Marcos,
        son of the deposed-dictator.
        Kung totoong tatakbo rin Presidente sa 2016..?
        He still claims & insist that his father did no wrong;
        Did NOT Steal; Did NOT Kill; Did NO PLUNDER; etc.,etc.,etc.,etc.,etc & etc.!

      Sila pa ang nangunguna sa black propaganda, mudslinging, at character assasination. Walang pinagkaiba ang mga pari sa mga trapong pulitiko. Mga team tatay na team epokrito!!

        hello, you need olok too?

    • mabyrik

      Bro, it’s not Kris VS any Bongs or Lapids. Specifically, it’s going to be Jinggoy VS Kris in 2016 VP race.

      The old axiom is, Vote for the lesser evil, but lesser evil is no better than evil itself, so, I’d rather not vote at all.

      BTW- in 1975, it was “thrilla in Manila”, Ali VS Frasier

      But in 2016, it’s going to be “The Corrupt VS the ex Maniac”.

      • popeyee

        bakit may “ex”?

      • Sollie Sinson

        she’s so articulate that she can express herself very well but it doesnt mean she’s too intelligent to be in that position. she will just expose something in her private life and then go on vacation. bahala na kayo di na nya maririnig ang ayaw nyang marinig.

      kris is a lot of things but she is not president material. her tactlessness could actually lead to war. kris is NOT noynoy, who has managed to maintain a good image and has kept his personal life errr, personal. kris is tainted with all kinds of dirt including her own revelation of having STD. i dont want a vice president who cant shut her mouth when she needs to. she can do anything she wants with her life, but running the country is something I have a say in, as a citizen. And i say NO to KRIS

      To let her run for Vice president would be another great insult to Filipino intelligence. Have you people not had enough?

    “Nepotism is a noun that means patronage bestowed or favoritism shown on the basis of family relationship, as in business and politics; favoritism shown to relatives, especially in appointment to high office. Rooted in the Italian word nepotismo or Latin nepōs (“grandchild”), nepotism is a reference to the practice of popes appointing relatives (most often nephews) as cardinals during the Middle Ages and Renaissance.
    One type of nepotism is a cardinal-nephew. This is when a cardinal is elevated by a Pope who is his uncle or his relative. The word nepotism appeared in the English language around 1669 and originally referred specifically to this practice. The practice of appointing cardinal-nephews originated in the Middle Ages, and reached its peak during the 16th and 17th centuries. From the middle of the Avignon Papacy (1309–1377) until Pope Innocent XII’s anti-nepotism bill in 1692 (a papal charter or rule made by the pope), Romanum decet pontificem, a Pope without a cardinal-nephew was very unusual. Every Renaissance Pope who created cardinals appointed a relative, mostly a nephew, to the College of Cardinals.
    This practice of nepotism was seen as a way for medieval and Renaissance Popes to dilute the power of the College of Cardinals (the popes viewed the College as a rival) and to keep their ideas and influence going even after they died.”

    Dynasty? Nepotism?

    Pareho lang iyan.

    At ang nagpauso niyan ay ang VATICAN.

    What’s with this personal obsession of retired archbishop Oscar Cruz with anything that smell like Aquino family? So what if she is checking her stars if entering politics is her cup of tea? Can you not wait archbishop Cruz for the tsismis you got warping into reality? In your own bailiwick of Dagupan including territorial boundaries are lined up with graft and corruption? Rather than going ballistic over a rumor which may turn out not true, why not expend your efforts towards solving your province big time graft?

  • lucidlynx

    I am pro-Aquino but I will never vote for Kris. I don’t think she’s qualified. She may be an intelligent individual but she is also highly emotional. We can’t afford to have an emotional, knee-jerking president or else we will all be in trouble. Erap was one example of an emotional, knee-jerking president.

    Remember that Erap was the one who declared an all-out war against Muslim rebels (that did not solve the problem), ordered his murderous henchmen to go after Chavit Singson (which led to Erap’s ouster by GMA and company), paraded criminal suspects on TV without due process (and some of those shown on TV were innocent people).

    So, don’t vote for people like Kris and Erap as well as people who are perceptible to corruption.

  • James Barrett

    Why not at least if she becomes a vice president everybody knows that at one time in her life, she is a very promiscous and everybody knows she got std.

  • mamer2

    Let her.
    After all, she’s qualified.
    Meaning…, she meets the age requirement and is a Filipina who could read & write.
    and has no “legal impediment”…, unless
    we consider her “affairs/problems of the heart” as a “mental disorder”.

    • penoy2012

      When Kris wins, STD will be the national disease.

    The way the mass of Filipino voters choose our national leaders points to the urgent need to redefine by law the qualification requirements of both the candidates for all national political – congressional and executive – positions and those of the voters.

  • CommonSens6

    The Philippines survive and thrive because of the blood, sweat and tears of the 12 million OFWs and the hardworking Filipinos not because of any other money-power-glory hungry politicians who treat them like commodities.

    For sure there will another Couangco or Arroyo for until the Filipino voters do what is right
    — that is to not succumb to popularity, coersion and vote buying!

    NATURINGAN pa mandin na arsobispo, TSISMOSO KA!!! Anong masama kung halimbawa tatakbo siyang VP sa 2016?Kung kina Jinggoy, lito lapid, bong revilla at tito sotto lang naman mas magaling si kris..KAYA kung tatakbo nga siya sa 2016 ako mismo mangangampanya sa kanya ng LIBRE!!!

  • isidro c. valencia

    Eh, ano naman ang masama don kung tatakbo si Kris? Karapatan nia at qualified naman.

    Among the vice presidentiables (Jinggoy, Chiz, Bong Rivilla, Bongbong Marcos, Vilma Santos, Tito Sotto, Lito Lapid) kay Kris na ako.

    Pero kung tatakbo si Pokwang, Regine, the Comedienne, Lady Dionisia ay siguro magdadalawang isip na ako.

    Archbishop Cruz is a much discredited marginalized Catholic leader.Very few people in the whole country and more so in his native Pangasinan. He seems to be oblivious of reality.He speaks as if HE IS THE POPE whose statements are Infallible when speaking Ex- Cathedra. This Pseudo Saint is nothing but a Scumbag and a clerical punk.

      2. A moral compass

      3. A vision

      4. The ability to build a consensus to achieve that vision

  • buttones

    No reason why the woman cannot run, nothing in our Constitution that says she can’t.- The qualifications are quite basic, being a Filipino of a certain age- there is nothing else. Even
    a third grade drop out can run for VP- those are the rules. This issue of ‘dynasty’
    is a dead duck anyway, there is no Law in PH, for example, that says every
    single Senator cannot be part on one family- just the way it is. Odd, a priest ,
    who works for an absolute elected monarchy keeps barking on about democracy-
    what does he know? Would I support the woman? Well no, having endured nine long
    years of GMA’s appalling voice when she speaks English, I simply could not
    stand three years of Kris squeaking about her STD’s and her iced tea- that’s simply too much for me..

Mas may katutuhan ang 2016 presidential election ay battle royal ni Jojo Binay vs. Erap Estrada .Dynastiya sa mga Binay at Estrada ang maglabanlaban sa 2016 . Kaya tumakbo si Erap sa dalawang rasun dahil gusto niyang makuha ang malaking boto sa Manila para sa 2016 president at kalabanin niya si Lim dahil may alitan sila noung 2007 . Si Erap ay may hinanakit din ni Binay dahil di siya ibinoto nito last election yun ang kanyang gawing rason. Erap president Jack Enrile vice president VS. Binay president Escudero vice president sa 2016 election. Sa Liberal party malamang Roxas president at dahil popular si Pnoy sa mga tao maging siya ang vice president sa Liberal .

Dapat na maghintay siya sa desisyon ng tao bago mag komento. Ang mga kulang sa pansin na tulad niya ang nagbababa ng respeto ng tao sa simbahang katoliko.

Having Pnoy as a public servant is already a big mistake, let’s not make it any bigger. These are spoiled brats who think self first above others. They just do not belong in the government.

    Archbishop wants to know if RUMOR is true: Kris Aquino to run for VP.

    I think the Bishop is the one spreading the Rumor.
    Bishop is KrisCruzing.

  • Rolly257

    Mahilig pala talaga sa tsismis si Archbishop Oscar Cruz. But frankly speaking, Kris is way much better than Mitos Magsatsay and most of our traditional politicians.

    I don’t think Kris Aquino had for any moment thought about entering politics. Showbiz is tenfold profitable than being a politician of her calibre.

  • Rolly257

    Sabi dito sa balita:

    Cruz also noted that during the Requiem Mass for the late President Corazon Aquino in 2009, Kris pointedly said that only she and her brother then Senator Aquino “remained” in the public limelight, their three other sisters being very private persons.

    “Kris said, ‘Noy, only the two of us remain.’ I remember that very, very well. ‘What will happen now that only the two of us remain?’” Cruz said. “Now when I hear this (rumor of her plan to run for vice president) … it seems (her statement) was loaded.”

    Ang sabi ni Kris noon:

    “Noy (referring to Noynoy), ikaw lamang sa atin (their family) ang nasa katayuan para mabago ang kalakaran sa Pilipinas”. This is in effect what Kris Aquino said then.

Mga immorals, mga sikat na bobo at mga matatalinong magnanakaw ang naka-puwesto. Paano tayong uunlad sa ganitong situwasyon? Kris Aquino could not morally manage her own life. This by itself is a valid reason for her rejection.

  • Noel

    Oh no ! If Kris runs and wins, she would turn the entire government into showbiz. Gossips would be the menu of the day in Malacanang. At least, she should first run for Congress or Senate. Not Vice President. Is she running as Vice to Mar Roxas? Kris and Korina are buddies.

  • Rene Sarabia

    Vote Kris Aquino into office so that she could stuff her plate with more beaus.

    James Yap is only the latest victim of her insatiable desire for more young and lean men. I’m sure the moment she goes to office she would immediately fornicate with the Palace horse once she gets tired of of infecting all the poor soldiers and basketball players with her AIDS since she does, after all, routinely molest them. Lol I’m Just joking.

    No! No! No! She’s generally good as a person and all, but she’s so overexposed. Ive seen her too many times already, ever since I was born and to let her become VP would induce me to fits of vomiting. Can we please vote for someone not part of a political dynasty for once?

    Bakit pakialamero ang retired na pareng iyan? He needs to get a life, or better yet, a wife! Either way, he needs to get out of other peoples’ lives!

    Archbishop Cruz over reacted on Kris political issue. If ever she runs for political position then let her be and if she wins then, well, the voters deserve her…she will serve her terms with so much paiyak-iyak and kinakawawa si Bimby whose affected by whatever issues thrown to her. She will be well supported by three sisters and the ABS-CBN. For now the archbishop should better shut up kasi alang kwenta ang issue niya kay Kris. If ever Kris becomes VP in 2016, walang problema, she can appoint basketball players as staffs to shoot her before dribbling, harlem shake style.

    Haaaayyy…nagkalat na naman ang mga bayaran na bloggers ng presidential communications dept.

    i understand the worry of padre damaso. when a majority of the electorate doesn’t use common sense and has low sets of values/principles, talagang valid yung worry ni padre damaso para ituring na vice-presidentiable si Kris. sa ibang progressive countries, hinding-hindi papasa yan si Kris dahil sa personal life pa lang niya, bagsak na ang grado niya. pero dito sa pilipinas kong mahal, maraming bulag at uto-uto

    What might be the purpose of Archbishop Cruz is it because he is pro or anti of Kris running as vice president? Or he is just curious about the tsismis.

    Why is this archbishop very nosy and rumormongering?

  • boybakal

    Karapatan naman ni Kris ang tumakbo. Hayaan mo na. Di mo naman at di ko naman siya ibobot, di ba?

    Should be more concerned about globalist genocide agenda 21, using North Korea as a psych-out, controlled by China who is controlled by globalist old money trillionaires pushing for World War 3. This time it will be nukes and bio-weps, laser weapons from the sky. The instigator will not be the prognosticator and most likely we will not see it coming until it happens. These days are not about celebrity status and politician-ism. For those that choose on the basis of popularity, shows how uninformed they really are about the mind-numbing stark issues. Collectively, politicians are mere puppets, pushing antiquated re-runs of population control measures of the New World Order, and by “order” they mean chaos. Today is about survival. Your government, your church has no control over the coming events. Overrun by foreign bankers, who control the most powerful militias on the planet, they are taxing and sanctioning you to death while turning a blind eye to purposely tainted food, pharmaceuticals, water, air, and toxic technology.

    Let anyone who desires to run for office have at it. When the brown stuff hits the fan, they will show their mettle.

    Yeah vote for anyone that runs because they know much better than you..

    Padre, you should not concern yourself whether kris is running for vice-president or not. you should consern yourself with spiritual well being of your parish or go to the typhoon-ravaged Mindanao and the Visayas and spread the gospel of the Lord.You could pray with the people to give us clean elections. leave politics to the politicians.

    Why is Cruz again meddling in politics? That old sanctimonious geezer should keep his trap shut.
