AGOO, La Union, Philippines—There will never come a time when Vice President Jejomar Binay will face the dilemma of having to endorse a lone candidate during a rally.

“Ang Presidente pumunta sa probinsya na ang kasama niya isa lang–ngayon lang ako nakakita ng ganyan,” he told reporters in an interview in Agoo, La Union on Friday, referring to the Team PNoy sortie in Iloilo which only had in attendance President Benigno Aquino III and one candidate, Jamby Madrigal.

“Pambihirang mangyari yun. Si Jamby lang? Hindi pa nangyayari at hindi mangyayari sa akin yan,” said Binay.

He said that none of the three leaders of the opposition (Binay, former President Joseph Estrada, and Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile) even had to be in any of UNA’s rallies to draw mammoth crowds.

He said that the chances of them being present during sorties have become smaller since “si Manong Johnny (Enrile) mataas ang presyon sa mata at hindi makatagal sa ilaw, si Erap (Estrada) naman ay kandidato.”

“Kaya si Jojo Binay na lang ang natitira,” he said.

But while Binay was busy with his duties as Vice President and cannot be in every province that the opposition visits, he told the media “basta’t pipilitin kong makasama.”

Binay remarked at Team PNoy’s low crowd turnout during rallies, saying “kahit wala kami ang pagsalubong at pagpapakita ng suporta ng ating mga kababayan ay maliwanag pa sa araw.”

The UNA leader said he expects a large amount of votes for their senatorial bets come election day from northern Luzon since many of them came from the region.

“Andito yung mga malakas talaga sa norte, taga Isabela ako. Si Manong Johnny, Cagayan yon. Siguro basis ito sa sobra naming kumpyansang malaki ang botong makukuha namin dito,” Binay said.

But with limited time left to campaign, he said that they were stepping up their activities and sought to add, if possible, more rallies to their schedule.

“Nagagalit nga ako kay Nancy kapag nasa bahay (tinatanong ko) bakit nandito ka?” he said in jest.

      IBALIK SI JAMBY SA SENADO

      huwag na mga dynasty

  • mavtan

    NO to UNAno!

  • Ako_Hiking

    Aquino seems to be the only person from his team that has been near perfect attendance in all of the rallies nationally. It’s a crazy thought to think that Aquino is the only one with all that time to campaign yet he’s supposed to be the President and supposed to be working for the people and fixing the problems of the country instead of campaigning for his candidates.

    • walangdiyos

      abnoy nga eh..tumatakas sa mga trabahong importante at pabaya na lang sa mga alipores eh puro palpak din.

      • Ako_Hiking

        Aquino would rather party at Malacanang, travel to nice places abroad like Switzerland and New Zealand, and campaign for his candidates rather than visit and help the poor in Davao starving due to ‘Pablo.’

      • ernievictory

        he he he . ‘palpak daw yung vibrant stock exchange , 6.8 % GDP at investment grade rating ng Philippines !

        bitterness mo ay sagad2 dahil super successful si PNoy kahit halfway pa lang siya sa term nya. go PNoy go !

    • Facilitator1

      YOU’re right but I think the LOGIC behind PNOY’s heavy, hands-on campaigning (for his chosen/handpicked senator-wannabees) is the HOPE that they’ll be elected. By doing so, he can be assured that his government programs/agenda will continue and will make his job much easier to do.

      A president with a belligerent Congress (more so in the Senate) will MAKE any sitting president a LAME DUCK or inutile in running the country or while in office. GMA (correct me if I’m wrong) was the only president who got her wishes / programs / desires fulfilled even with belligerent/antagonistic media, congress, and the majority of the populace. She made her enemies think or doubted themselves (second thoughts), quiver in fear, and unsure of themselves even up to the last minute of her presidency. She projected herself or seen as a TITAN (behemoth) by her enemies even though she’s so diminutive in size.

      PEACE…

      • Ako_Hiking

        Most of the current Senators are already Team Aquino and they are just running for re-election. Aquino already pretty much controls the Senate and Congress but still no programs and major agenda benefiting the entire country is on the table. The only agenda that Aquino had was a personal one when he impeached Corona and as everyone saw the Senate backed up Aquino. Campaigning is another excuse for Aquino to do nothing and disguise it with busy campaigning which does nothing for the country really but merely benefits him and his party.

      • Facilitator1

        Exactly, PNOY wants senators to be on his side and supporting his programs or agenda.

        Even with the current crop of senators (and supposedly his allies), there’s no guarantee he’ll get wants he wants. More so, if senators-to- be are his antagonizers or enemies.

        By the way, CORONA made a big blunder (tactical error) by admitting on national TV that the charges against him were true and not because the senators are allies of PNOY and beholden to PNOY. If my memory serves me right, it was an overwhelming senate vote of (20-3) for a GUILTY verdict. Even ESTRADA, LAPID, SOTTO, REVILLA, and ENRILE voted GUILTY.

        As far as PNOY is a DO-NOTHING president, I can’t in good conscience agree or disagree with you because I’m not privy to his day to day schedule–maybe you are, so I suggest for the benefit of Juan dela Cruz, please post or affix evidences/proofs.

        PEACE

      • ernievictory

        hoi, magbasa ka para malaman mo ang mga nagawa ni PNoy, one of the most influential people in the world !

        ikaw malamang ang taong ‘do nothing except criticize to the max’ . bwa ha ha

      • Facilitator1

        Alam mo Kabayan, I didn’t vote for PNOY and definitely, hindi rin ako supporter nya. Pro-PILIPINAS (maka-masa) at NON-PARTISAN (na kung sino ang mas maganda ang adhikain sa inang bayan–duon ako) ako.

        So kung against ka kay PNOY or a GMA ally or whatsoever, you must so your best to convince ang mga MADLANG-PIPOL na mali si PNOY at tama ang mga ACCUSATIONS mo na DO NOTHING PRESIDENT sya. WHY?

        This way, you can convince/persuade more people to side with you or support your cause. Being antagonistic, childish, and having a belligerent attitude won’t help you in your cause/ideals but the opposite will happen–mas maniniwala sila sa YELLOW ARMY.

        Payong kabayan lang ito, igan…PEACE

  • tilney

    Baka dumilim ang pag-asa/hinaharap ng atin bansa kung ikaw ang maging Presidente eh gusto mo kayo na lng ng pamilya mo ang mamuno ng bansa.. Sa Makati ikaw, yon asawa at anak mo na lng ang namuno..Kaya sa MAKATI ginagamit mo yon pondo para kayo ay tumagal sa pwesto..Trapo

    VOTE TEAM PNOY FOR GOOD GOVERNANCE!

    VOTE STRAIGHT LP (12-0) FOR GOOD GOVERNANCE!

    • jcsantos

      Replace Cynthia Villar and Grace Poe with Gordon and Hagedorn. We can’t truly expect “good governance” from these two: one is involved in corruption controversies such as C5 flyover, the other virtually ZERO experience along with ZERO platform. Please remember to vote based especially on accomplishments and platforms so as not to waste taxpayers’ money on deadbeat senators (*cough* Guingona *cough*), otherwise, we’d be voting for Bimby if he was in Team Pnoy: will do NOTHING in the senate, but will be voted for being “cute” and “member of team Pnoy”. Let’s refrain from voting those na “pa-cute” lang.

  • KonsensyaNgBayan

    Kampon ng Maligno is taking swipe to our taga-bantay President. Common Juan De La Cruz will defend the Tuwid na Daan from the Evil UNA group this coming election. NO to UNA, Huwag Iboto!…UNA NO!!…UNA NO!!

    The country have thousands of issues to tackle and yet Binay the vice president talks about attendance in political rally. We have hundreds of OFWs in Saudi waiting to be rapatriated and yet no word from him about govt. plans.

    “Nagagalit nga ako kay Nancy kapag nasa bahay (tinatanong ko) bakit nandito ka?” he said in jest.

    Nancy: “Tay, hanggang BAHAY lang naman talaga ako BAGAY. Wala akong alam diyan sa papasukin ko. Kaya wag mo na akong pakialaman at magpapa-puti na lang ako. Gusto mong gluta?”

    • ESCAPEfmALCATRAZ

      VERY WELL SAID…..

    • Anton_Agaton

      Kaya dapat talagang manalo si Nancy dahil nakakahiya sa tatay niya. Siya na lang sa pamilya nila ang hindi nakakapagnakaw sa kabang-bayan ng Pilipinas.

    • Guest

      I’m not voting for Nancy but this comment is uncalled for. Very rude. Didn’t you remember that Marcos kept on referring to Cory as a PLAIN HOUSEWIFE when she ran for president in 1986? What you’re doing is just the same

      • Jay Alvin Madrigal

        oh take your fist out of your 4ss and stop being so self righteous.

      • Guest

        Sorry but I won’t stoop down to your level.

        And please, don’t judge me when you don’t even know me.

        Finally, please don’t say words too strongly dahil nagstruggle and iyong face!

        LoL!

      • Jay Alvin Madrigal

        dude, my level is so high you can’t even see me from where you’re standing now. you cannot “stoop down” to my level if i’m higher (so effing high) than you to begin with.

        and this line, “please don’t say words too strong dahil nagstruggle and iyong face!” — looks like you’re the one who is struggling. what does that even mean? you’re not even being vague, you’re just pointless. you’re a troll and i’m pretty sure you look like a troll.

        LASTLY, someone who just ends a comment with “LoL” is just too pathetic, disgusting, moronic, and just plain stupid.

      • Guest

        So you edit the comments so that it won’t appear offensive? heheheh

      • Jay Alvin Madrigal

        why would i edit if i DO want to be offensive?

        the question is, why would you switch into a “guest” account when earlier you were commenting as a certain “PGSALT?” you’re a chicken. a big fat, scared chicken whose head is dangling from it’s neck.

        bakit? are you guarding your reputation here in the forums? do you even have a reputation to begin with? maybe you do… a reputation for being an idiotic turd of a human being.

        Disqus comments turns to guest when a user decides to deletes his comments. It’s a glitch I think that has to be addressed by Disqus developers

      • Jay Alvin Madrigal

        oooooh, i didn’t know that. well, just to be clear. i DON’T delete comments. i’m guessing this “PGSALT” person (note he has a comment below, and his display picture is the cute “Po” from Kung Fu Panda) deleted the comments he posted earlier. hay, loser…

      • http://www.mercantilecollections.com/ debt collectors

        The guy you’re referring to is on top. He has sensible comments I think.

      • jcsantos

        And that complaint is justified. What exactly did Cory do during her term? NOTHING. She left all tasks to her brother, Danding Cojuangco, who proceeded to abuse every single position he could to make his family as rich as he possibly could. Continued blackouts, bad economy, lack of jobs ensued. Proof: In the next election, a battle between Cojuangco and Ramos, why were surveys continuously saying Cojuangco will win by landslide? Because he had control! (also another proof that surveys are NOT reliable).

        LAUREL should have been the one running, being a close friend of Ninoy and actually a decent politician. However, he recognized that the people would rather vote for a “symbol” rather than accomplishments and track records as basis, thus his agreement with Cory to run as Prime Minister instead, since it’s the PM that runs the country anyway. When Cory declared Laurel as PM, she subsequently abolished it. Clearly it’s not in her character to betray people, thus this action was dictated by you-know-who. By far, Cory takes 1st place in running for Top Puppet President in Philippine history.

      • akongednamzug

        Kailan pa naging kapatid ni Cory si Danding Cojuangco?

        So isang mali lang, mali na lahat ng sinasabi ko? Andali talaga magbintang nang walang ka-effort-effort sa pag research.

      • ernievictory

        i won’t enumerate ‘coz masyadong marami ang mali mo. i was wondering why you hate cory so much at idinamay mo pa si PNoy who’s doing a god job ? natanggal ka ba cguro sa trabaho dahil corrupt ka o nawalan ka ng delihensia ? ikaw na…

      • jcsantos

        Pnoy is doing a good job naman ah. Kailan ko ba siya nadamay? Dahil lang anak siya ni Cory?

        Hindi ko alam kung nasaan ka noong panahon ni Cory, pero kahit di ka pa buhay noon, kahit paano, mag effort ka naman sa sarili mong research. Huwag ka maging bulag sa mga nangyari noon. Andaming masamang nangyari sa administrasyon niya dahil WALA SIYANG ALAM at si danding na ang humawak sa lahat. Ang mga nagsasabi na dapat kalimutan ang nakaraan ni Cory ay parehas din sa nagsasabi na dapat kalimutan din natin ang nakaraan nina Honasan, Enrile at Marcos.

  • Gloria Wheelchairroyo

    Kaya pala 3 kandidato lang ng UNArroyo party ang may pag-asa manalo. Maswerte na UNA kapag pumasok si Binay the Alalay at JV PlundERAP sa eleksyon. Marami pa rin kaseng bobo na boboto sa mga Kurakot at Kriminal na party ni Binay, PlundERAP, GMA at Enrilerroyo.
    Sa ibang bansa siguradong talo na lahat ang kandidato ng UNArroyo party kase mga immoral at kriminal lahat.

    ~ Mitt Romney

    Date: Nov. 7, 2012

    Romney and his campaign had gone into the evening confident they had a good path to victory, for emotional and intellectual reasons. The huge and enthusiastic crowds in swing state after swing state in recent weeks – not only for Romney but also for Paul Ryan – bolstered what they believed intellectually: that Obama would not get the kind of turnout he had in 2008.

    Binay is a little negrito who has no right to speak his mind and take a swipe at our aristocratic president. Binay should know his place in our rigid class system. Someone should put Binay in his place. We can be sure LP’s Abaya and Roxas will remind little negrito Binay to keep quiet. Little negritos should just obey the fair-skinned elites of our society.

    That’s just how PNoy and his KKK, Inc. and Krony-oligarchs see the likes of Binay and the rest of us Filipinos.

    A FORMER whistleblower in high-profile graft corruption controversies turned-head of government’s financial watchdog yesterday linked the wife of Vice President Jejomar Binay, an incumbent and several former Makati City officials to alleged deception in the public bidding for a Php72.06 million supply contract awarded by the city government in 2001.

    The former mayor now( Vice President)was charged in 2006 for allegedly bypassing the bidding procedure in favor of Office Gallery International Inc.

    Binay was questioned over the anomalous purchase of office fixtures and furniture for the new Makati City Hall from private contractor Office Gallery International from December 1999 to February 2000. The contract was allegedly overpriced by P3.6 million.
