Nancy Binay still won’t do debates

Nancy Binay: My mind-set is I’m not winning. INQUIRER.net FILE PHOTO

DUMAGUETE CITY, Philippines—Those eager to see Nancy Binay in a public debate would have to wait until after the May 13 senatorial elections.

If she wins, the daugher of Vice President Jejomar Binay said, she would be willing to go head-to-head with Team PNoy counterpart Risa Hontiveros on the Senate floor, assuming, of course, that the former Akbayan representative gets into the “Magic 12″ as well.

“I told her it’s okay. If both of us get elected to the Senate, the two of us would be able to debate every day in the Senate,” she told reporters during a campaign sortie here.

But in the meantime, Binay insisted that she would rather focus on the campaign trail with less than three weeks to go before elections.

“It seems there’s no more time for debates because there are still many provinces that I need to visit,” she said in Filipino.

More ground to cover

Binay said she still had more ground to cover because she joined the the senatorial race relatively late. She joined the United Nationalist Alliance ticket after businessman Joey De Venecia backed out.

“Most of [the candidates] had already prepared a year ago because they already had intentions of running,” she said.

Despite her purported reluctance to seek public office, Binay has performed well in surveys of voter preferences in the senatorial elections. She ranked third and fourth in the latest Social Weather Stations survey.

In contrast, Hontiveros, who has been challenging her to a debate, has consistently failed to get into the top 12 of all major surveys so far.

Still, Binay said she would not go easy on her campaign. She noted that in the 2010 vice presidential election, her father, then Makati Mayor Jejomar Binay, had been trailing frontrunner Mar Roxas. The elder Binay eventually won.

“What happened to my father’s opponent, I don’t want that to happen to me,” she said. “To me, surveys are not the true test of who would win or lose in the election.”

Binay added: “My mind-set is I’m not winning.”

    Avoiding a debate, what does it say about you? That you are only banking on your surname to win a seat. To prove yourself as mature enough deserving a legislative role you should welcome any oppotunity for a debate. After all it is what senators do & not merely dancing & singing on stage!

    • Ulipur

      She is doing the right thing to win…In this real political game there is no substitute for winning…That’s the end goal. VOTE FOR JUN MAGSAYSAY.

      • sanjuan683

        Huwag muna pabalikin yun naging senador na. Iba naman ang ilagay mo, matanda na iyan hindi kumo anak ng dating presidente ay iboboto muna. Tignan mo yun binoto na anak ni corykon hayan wala pala alam yun pala Abnoy pala browout lang sa Mindanao hindi ma-solve. Bumoto ka na lang ng bago at bata pa. Bulok na yan JM mo.

    • virgoyap

      Pag ang kandidato ay walang laman ang ulo hindi nyo isusugal and good rating nyo sa survey. It’s shortsightedness to enter to such a debate.

    • Roy Batty

      C’mon! The general electorate themselves don’t care for ‘intelligent’ debates!

      The voters wants to be entertained and stuffed during election. By large most Filipino voters loathes intelligent candidates.

      Philippine tv industries made sure majority of Filipinos remains emotionally infantile, dumb and dumber everyday.

      Get Boy Abunda or Kris Aquino to preside this debate then that’s the time we can call it an ‘intillegent’ debate to the masses.

    • Rex Robles

      are you referring to Penoy who consistently avoided debates in the past and banking on his parents name to capture the hearts and minds of the color-pigsa brigade ? dont tell me it is another issue….typical n0ytard.

      • 33Sambuang2

        e bakit nanalo kung bobo syang katulad mo? kasi ikaw gusto mo magnanakaw ang maluklok sa gobyerno. tangnamo.

    As long as we all get to vote, as long as the clueless and uneducated outnumber the discerning voters, candidates like these will be elected.

    • Ulipur

      Please do not insult the Filipino voters..In a democracy it is the collective decision of the voters that that counts. Please vote for Jun Magsaysay.

  • Cheryl Joy Estrada-Lumapas

    surveys are being made in day time,only the uneducated voters were at home,the educated ones were in offices…..watchout nancy binayot,we will put you in d jungle!

    • Bugtong Uyamot

      but the reality is there are many “uneducated” voters and they vote on election day too.

  • Edgar Lores

    Anyari, Nancy?

  • calipso_2100

    Yes, campaigns, shaking hands with bobotantes , dance numbers, giving free food, delivering empty promises and whatever gimmicks are more important than debating about issues and solutions…. if you merely want to win the votes of bobotantes….. if you are trapo…. if you are one of UNA… especially if you are Nancy.

  • BoyBakal

    That’s good answer by Nancy, debate in the senate floor.
    At least Nancy is showing cleverness,smart indeed. And we need brilliant mind in the senate.

    As said, there is nothing to gain in debate but more to lose.
    Ika nga, almost finish line na ang karera baka madapa.
    With weeks to go, Nancy should just cruise along among the top five.

    Again, Vote for Nancy….the Binay daughter.

    • Jerome Jimenez

      Well, that’s your opinion. Clever, smart and a brilliant mind, as you were saying, those were yet to be proven. We don’t know a lot about Nancy, the debate could have been a great venue to show her mettle. Personally, I won’t vote for her because I don’t know her well enough. Kudos to her, if she wins, i hope she makes good on her promises. Voters are getting wiser these days and I’m hopeful in a few more years, there would be a “SUBSTANTIAL EDUCATED VOTES” to make the right candidate win. One day, those who deserved to win, and not just banking on their dad’s name, would win. So “erring officials” watch out, your days are numbered. Laugh now, because maybe you have fooled most of us now, but one day….

    • otepau68

      Calling avoidance of a debate ‘cleverness’ is far out. Probably ‘realistic’ is a closer descriptive. It does not give her a credit though. And if she makes it, I am sure she will be rarely seen in the senate floor, untestested as she is. Not unless she will be visible & vocal but only as a shadow or worse, a puppet! Brilliance indeed.

    • Guest

    Umiiwas dahil wala namang maipamamalas sa taumbayan . Itong babaeng ito ang repleksyon ng mga kandidatong gustong magkaroon ng puwesto sa gobyerno para kanyang maging hanapbuhay hindi upang maglingkod sa bayan. Ewan ko na lang sa mga Pilipino kung iboboto nila itong babaing ito sa Mayo.

    • Ulipur

      It appears that there are many Filipino voters who wii give her the required number of votes that will make her win in 2013. Let us give also the same number of votes for Jun Magsaysay to bring him back to the Senate.

      • sanjuan683

        hehehehe Bumoto na lang ng bata at huag na sa isang matanda na. Hanap ka ng brilliant ideas na mayroon sa mga bata independent. Bugok na yan JM mo.. Hindi na uso ang Mambo ang uso ngayon a Gangnam.

    • sanjuan683

      Balak niya siguro magpakain ng mga senador sa senado, kasi yun ads niya nagpapakain ng lugaw sa mga bata. hehehehe Dapat karinderia business na lang ang atupagin mo Nancy. Tsamba lang ang panalo ng tatay mo duhat.

      • NoPeopleLuck

      E kung si Manny Pacquiao & Lito Lapit, no read no write nanalo, nagtataka pa kung papano bumoto ang Pilipino? Ha! Ha! Ha!

        Manny Pacquiao and Lito Lapid and Bong Revilla banked on their own popularity eh saan ba naging popular itong ulikbang ito kundi nakikisakay lang sa gusto ng Ama. Eh kung pupuwede lang na sa eleksyon ang ilagay sa balota ay first name eh talo na itong Nancy-ing ulikba na ito. Naiinis ako dahil baka manalo pero pagdating sa 2016 lalabas na ang bulok ng pamilyang ito. Sobrang suwapang sa kapangyarihan at kayamanan.

  • boshog

    Nancy Binay you are full of S_ _ _. The reason you won’t go into any debate is that when you open you mouth people will see an empty brain.

    • NoPeopleLuck

      Empty brain but full in pocket…pera-pera lang yan bbabawiin lahat ng ginastos sa election sobra2 pa di ba Nancy?, she got brain tama si pres daddy. Kyo talaga sa sinado na natin malalaman talaga kung anong meron sya. “Vote muna bago debate.” Ayos na slogan. Ang galing ko!

  • Simplify1

    The only reason why nancy is ahead in the surveys is because the majority of Team Pinoy supporters who happened to be selected in the survey simply voted for their favorites and did not complete a full slate of 12 senators…Once ALL supporters vote for ALL 12 team Pinoy candidates in their ballots, tanggal yan si nancy sa top 12

  • bongarroyo

    bakit naman papatulan pa ni inday nancy iyang mga debate-debate na iyan e magiging taga taas lang naman siya ng kamay kapag nasa senado na……….at kapag ang tatay na niya ang sumunod na presidente magiging taga timpla na lang siya ng kape nito………senadora ang PA ng presidente …..sosyal di ba? lol

      Ang plataforma ni Nancy Binay ay ganito: Hello, ang pangalan ko po ay Nancy. May asawa at anak po ako Pero hwag na ninyong alamin ang apelido ng asawa ko. Ako po ay anak ni Jejomar Binay, ang vice presidente. Yan po ang qualification ko para maging senadora. Kaya iboto po ninyo ako, Nancy Binay sa pagka senadora. O, di ba very qualified sya. Who needs debates.

  • quirinomayer

    It is wrong to say Nancy is banking on the name of her father to enter the Senate. She is banking on the stupidity of the Filipino electorate. If she knows that voters look for someone who has something in the head and knows the burning issues of the day, she would jump at the chance to debate anyone. Or she would not have run at all because she knew she would be exposed long before election day. Her father would not also have ordered her to run if the electorate were more discriminating.

      I agree with you. But as long the dynasties rule, there will be no way that the general voter will be educated..Switch to party-programs instead of empty talk and empty promises..Stop with the puppet-shows and dynasties,come with party-program based solutions for the problems that we face day after day. Fair elections, no corruption and no criminals in our government. THINK TWICE..VOTE WISE!!

    Nancy Binay for President. :}P

    • buttones

      I say old man Binay for President, Nancy for Vice President, and there must be a few other Binay family members knocking about that could fill up the Senate as well. Or Kris for President, Simone for VP is another option, or old man Enrile for President,
      Jack for VP even……or Manny for President and Jinkee for VP, we have so many options don’t we….

    Risa Hontiveros will definitely be a much better senator than Binay whose sole ticket in her bid is her surname.

    Binay’s refusal to engage Hontiveros clearly reflects her cowardice and lack of brains!

    Even a 10- to 20-minute exchange with Hontiveros on any TV or radio channel won’t take away much from her campaign sorties.

    If Binay really feels that she’s ripe for a Senate seat, she should stop providing lame & lousy excuses for not showing to everyone her real worth as a potential lawmaker.

    With her inexplicable and continued refusal to engage a worthy opponent in a debate over livelihood, social and other important issues of great concern to the Filipino people, chances are she will end up like Lito Lapid, Bong Revilla and Robert Jaworski — benchwarmers at oddballs in the Senate floor.

    Father and daughter are shameless in their decision to field her even if she appears from all indications of being undeserving of a Senate seat.

  • kapayapaan_1900

    It’s obvious the much anticipated debate between Nancy and Risa will never happen. It is just a matter of “banderang tapos” and “banderang kapos” scenario. The only thing worth remembering here is in terms of warranty the voters got from both candidates. For Nancy, it’s a “LIMITED WARRANTY” notably from the Vice-President who happens to be her father, and from her legions of die-hard supporters, and yes, of course, from Toby. For Risa, it’s a “LIFETIME WARRANTY” from her former colleagues in Congress, respected citizens, educated voters, and majority of university students. To the Filipino voters, it is now your call.

    Nothing against Nancy Binay. You should tell the people what is your platform of governance and not only just being a Binay. Makati City should changed its name to Binay City since until China invades the Philippines it will be controlled by the Binay’s until the end of days or all Binays get assassinated or get afflicted with a discriminatory disease.

  • 4RuleofLaw

    Nothing against Nancy Binay. You should tell the people what is your platform of governance thru a honest to goodness debate with whoever and not just banking on being a Binay. And Makati City should change its name to Binay City since until China invades the Philippines it will be controlled by the Binay’s until the end of days or all Binays get assassinated or get afflicted with a discriminatory disease.

    My pig would be a better senatorial candidate than this “Large Black” (a breed of black pig from England). At least my pig won’t be doing any disastrous decisions in the future, nor will it encourage “dynastic” rule.

  • DinngMae

    Avoiding debates is akin to eluding the opportunity to present a platform of governance which is important for the voters to make a good decision come election time.

    In the first place, a debate should not be construed as to who is the better debater but who has the better program to offer the people. The lack of debate or any similar activity to enlighten the electorate is one of the reasons why this country ends up with government leaders of questionable integrity and capability.

    The reason of Nancy Binay to skip debates because of the need to cover more provinces is a shallow one. Debate is a very important activity that could give a person a national exposure thereby negating the need to hop every provinces. Expounding a good program for the people could provide a name recall than a mere hand shake in every stump.

    If Nancy is really sincere in her belief that surveys “are not the true test of who would win”, she should be aware that eschewing an important activity for the good of the people could lose her some points.

    But the most important thing is that early in this game, Nancy is already showing her attitude against the popular will. She doesn’t care what people would think or say which is a mistake considering that her mandate comes from the people in the event she landed in the Senate. This is a dictatorial tendency that speaks a lot about her father, the Vice President.

    • Guest

      What if the dynasties (like Binay etc) will get a high number of government positions and the 2016 is coming up? Our country will be ruled by a group of Binays. Does anyone believe that they will allow opposition to their rulership? THAT is where the danger lies..Their goal is money and power, both cause for corruption and many committed crimes. THINK TWICE.. VOTE WISE!!

      • DinngMae

        Right on there. We should always remember that corruption breeds dictatorship. The use of state power is an effective tool against dissent and to defend unexplained wealth. The Marcoses and the Arroyos are good examples.

        The country will see again the dark days when the Binays captured Malacanang. The affairs of the state will be run as a family enterprise. No other family in the history of the country had brazenly made the government as their number one of source of family income except the Binays.

        Suffrage is people power. Let us vote for a better future.

  • JuanTamadachi

    “Nancy Binay still won’t do debates”

    She is dodging a debate with Risa because Risa’s debating skills and eloquence are second to none and will surely expose her (Nancy’s) ignorance on most political issues for after all, her only qualification for the senate post as admitted by her dad is ” she’s my daughter” and nothing more.

  • dmaxx_trip

    this an example of a candidate who doesn’t even know what she will do if elected but the survey tells or conditioned the voters mind that she is inside the magic 12. Based on her qualification on her TV ads, she is a “Nanay ng bayan” and she loves children. So what goes there? Ano balak nya sa senado? Maging yaya ng mga bata?

    Binay is indeed creating a political dynasty para lahat makurakot

  • Jesse_Bruce_Pinkman

    For a dumb person, this is probably nancy binay’s smartest move.

    For once, she has made a right decision. All the rest are stupid, especially running for the Senate.

    You know what they say, a monkey will still be a monkey even if you call it a monkey barrister.

    Hoy nancy binay, tatay mo unggoy.

    I could not even force myself to capitalize her name, even though how much it is killing me, because I have such a very low opinion of her.

  • imongredneck

    She cannot and will not debate with anyone anytime anywhere. Therefore it is useless to keep challenging her. Needless to say, voters should not waste their votes on her.

  • honest man

    For a debate, the right time is now. No right topic for a debate with Risa after the election. We also would like to know what’s in her head. Just curious.

  • captainramius

    Ms. Binay kahit wala na debate yong mga ready made answers mo sa newspaper such as Cha-cha just prove the senate is beyond your capabilities . Ang tanong kong kailangan mag amend ng 1987 constitution e pinasa mo pa sa mga tao. Kaya nga tayo dapat may mga senadors to tell the people what to do.

    Halata ni di mo alam various issues why the 1987 constitution need correction kasi hindi ito relevant now sa pressing needs ng mga tao. Ano mga ito ?

    Eh ikaw na tumatakbo as Senador shall tell us .

    Eh credentials mo secretary ng papa mo a heading various foundations kuno di sana nag apply ka na lang dyan as member of SWD .sang sa senate.

    Puro lang kasi popularity ang ginagawa nyo tapos wala naman kayo masabi na alam nyo trabaho sa senate.

    Mag resign ka na sa election na ito at save the Senate .

  • TheHopefulPessimist

    Debates would provide the electorate better insights to the candidates’ agenda, character and thought process and thus allowing them to make sensible choices.

    It is obvious Ms. Binay is betting that name recognition alone will get her the votes. I certainly hope the electorate proves to be much smarter than what Ms. Binay has assumed them to be.

    And I fervently hope you won’t! How I’d wish that the Filipino voters would be discerning enough not to put this sorry excuse of an individual to the Senate. But I suppose that would be too much of an ask considering the kind of electorates we have. Please God, if you are listening, show us some miracles and enlighten the Filipino voters!

  • LucianoChing

    Let’s vote for Riza Hontiveros and make her win a senate seat..the reason why nancy binay wants a debate later on is that she is assuming herself good as elected in the senate and hontiveros not getting elected,so no debate will happen,which is really what binay is avoiding…bet u,if both wins a seat,nancy binay will not engage riza in a debate….Nancy,instead,will befriend her….

  • 4RuleofLaw

    Ms. candadate, you should tell the people what is your platform of governance and not only just being a Binay. Makati City should also change its name to Binay City since until China invades the Philippines it will be controlled by the Binay’s until the end of days or all Binays get assassinated or get afflicted with a discriminatory disease.

    knowing how to debate is important for every senatorial candidate, marunong ba talaga syang makipag debate? as far as I know a senator must be good in argumentation. hOW will she pass a bill if she doesn’t even know how to explain it? In senate she will encounter more debates, pero kung dito palang kay Riza umaatras na sya, pano pa kaya sa senado?

      Correction pls. Mayaman na ang Makati even before Binay took the helm of the city. Makati tops Manila’s income even back in the 60’s. Nuong nakatira pa ako sa Makati dekada 1960, Mercedes Benz ang patrol car nila at BMW motorcycles ang gamit ng mga hagad. Binay didn’t do SQUAT to make Makati rich. All he did is establish the Nog-nog dynasty in Makati.

    Matagal na siyang hinahamon ni Risa Hontiveros para makipag-debate.

    Kung anu-anong dahilan ang sinasabi. Ayaw pang aminin na wala siyang
    alam and nanginginig sa takot. Hindi ang mga klase ng tao na katulad ni Nancy Binay

    To say that Nancy is dumb is false. A dumb person does not know how to choose her battle where she knew she’ll loss. Evading a debate was a wise move. >: D

  • cry_freedom

    ‘My mindset is I’m not winning’, says Nancy.

    I hope and I fervently pray that her mindset will prevail comes Election Day. Not winning the election will be the best service that Nancy can give to the Filipino people.

  • JuanTamadachi

    A wise move by a dumb, inarticulate political neophyte.

  • rlo

    She’s not going to win a debate. The more people seem to sound to be against her specially in the media the more she will be voted because she will be viewed by the masses as an underdog. Her father relates himself very well to the poor and you all know how much power there can be in just a surname.

    • askal2u

      Binays relate to the poor, parang erap yan makamasa kuno pero anong ginawa sa masa, minasa ang mga utak. di alam ang yayaman na mga to sa pangungurakot, kaya mga bilyonaryo na

Ayaw din yang maglabas ng resulta ng psychiatric test nya…yun ba ay senyales na ang taong may tinatago ibig sabihin ay totoo ngang may problema sa utak ang idolo mo ? ha ha…malamang nanggagalaiti ka na nmang mag reply nito dahil di mo matanggap ang katotohanan.

    1. Reason of Running: To maintain election name recall “Binay” for 2016 PE
    2. Campaign Fund: You know!! but I’m sure not from there pockets..
    haha..kaya..who care sa pa debate debate na yan..

  • joeybg

    KUNG MABABASA ANG MENSAHE KO NI NANCY BINAY O NG KANYANG MGA SUMUSUPORTA…… AKOY NAKAHANDANG MAGBIGAY NG 1/2 MILYON SA NILIKHANG FOUNDATION O CHARITABLE INSTITUTION NI NANCY KUNG PAPAYAG SIYANG MAKIPAG-DEBATE KAY HONTIVEROS AT ISA SA MGA INDEPENDENT CANDIDATE.

    NAKAHANDA AKONG KAMAYAN SIYA AT IBIGAY ANG 1/2 MILYON SA HARAP NG TELEVISION PAGKATAPOS NG DEBATE. ANG DEBATE AY NARARAPAT BAGO DUMATING ANG MAYO 13 ELEKSIYON.

    KUNG TATANGGIHAN NI NANCY ANG ALOK KONG ETO, AY PARA NA RIN NIYANG INAMIN NA WALA TALAGA SIYANG ALAM AT WALANG PAKIALAM SA NILIKHA NIYANG FOUNDATION O CHARITABLE INSTITUTION.

    • ayupayupan77

      ako pre magpapatule ulit ako live on national tv……..kapag nakipagdebate sya kay hontiveros

    • AngLagay

      You’re kidding, pare. Hindi naman sa iniinsulto ko ang alok mong 1/2 mil., kasi ang halagang ito ay barya lang sa mga binay. Bahala na si dad binay, kong tungkol sa financial matter.

      Maganda ang layunin mo, kabayan. Kaya lang hindi kakagatin ni Nancy iyan, kasi alam niyang wala siyang kakayahang makipag-debate sa kahit sinong candidate. Anak lang ni binay iyan, kaya senatiorial position kaagad ang pinile. Dapat sana kagawad or bantay tanod muna sa isang baranggay sa Makati.

      Talaga bang sa Philippines, basta super yaman ka, pwedeng mong bilhin ang kahit anong elective position? (Nagtatanong lang po, Mr. Vice President)

      • joeybg

        Hindi ko naman binibigay para ibulsa niya , para sa foundation o charitable institution na nilikha “daw” niya. alam kong barya lang ang 1/2 milyon sa kanila, ganoon lang ang kaya ko, gusto ko lang kasing malaman ng publiko ang tunay na katangahan ni Nancy. Kung iisipin niya kung mas isip siya, ay mas malaki ang kikitain niya sa mga TV station na magbabayad sa kanya sa debate, plus ang mga commercial na mag-sponsor sa debate.

  • Guest

    .Jamby Madrigal has a good track record naman na pwedeng ipagmalaki, unlike the other candidates [particularly Nancy Binay], na wala naman.

  • Guest

    Ang nagustuhan ko kay Jamby Madrigal, she was also instrumental in fighting human rights violations. YAN ANG GAYAHIN MO NANCY BINAY.

  • BoyBakal

    I really pity Hontiveros.
    Because of her low rating, she is looking for an excuse to up her position in the pool.
    Well, you choose the wrong person. Nancy won’t bite your bait.

    Nancy is like a tuna precious fish that commands high price that is why she is being hooked.
    She won’t stoop down to your low level in rank much more, she won’t bite.

    As Nancy would say….see you in Senate Floor if you want debate.

    Pano mo iboboto ang isang taong ayaw makigpag usap sa mga tao para malaman ang kanyang opinion sa mga pangyayari ukol sa bayan at hingit sa lahat ang sabihin sa mga tao ang kanyang plataporma na i-open sa scrutiny thru debate. Wanlanjo pag ito nanalo padin ang dami na talagang tanga sa Pinas. Remember the saying you deserve the leaders you choose. Matuto na sana ang mga Pilipino.

    she’s got no brains at all.

    Just trying to cash in on her dad, but her dad can’t help now with
    people disgusted over Nancy’s political opportunism.

    • AngLagay

      I absolutely agreed to your comment. For sure the middle income Filipinos will throw her to the “kangkungan.” However, majority of the voters are still “STUPID” and willing to vote to whoever can pay. Qualifications, education and experienced does matter to them. Nice to have a rich and powerful Daddy!

      • boldyak

        most voters vote on name recall, that is shown in the recent surveys…people don’t really care who they vote..

      • Cool LahgotzMO

        You’re talking about yourself. That’s why you will vote for this tsimay.

      • boldyak

        hahaha…..i have voted already and i voted only one…most probably you hav never heard of him….hahaha…

  • Tommy

    The fact that Nancy Binay is considered someone likely to win a seat in the senate just shows how stupid the masa is. I’m sorry to say it, and it’s sad, but it’s the truth. She has absolutely no qualifications beyond blood relations.

    People will bring up P-Noy, but he at least had experience in the house of representatives before running for Senate, and decent managerial experience. The extent of Nancy Binay’s work experience is being a bloody personal assistant and sitting on some boards because her father was the mayor of Makati.

    Heck, the fact that Binay was even elected VP is stupid. No, people of the Philippines, Binay can’t turn the rest of the country into Makati, because he didn’t turn Makati into Makati. It was the Ayala and Lopez families spending heavily that turned hte city into what it is today, and it got there IN SPITE of Binay being amazingly corrupt.

    Nancy Binay = the ultimate symbol of Philippine stupidity.

      SLAVES OF YESTER YEARS, TYRANT OF TODAY AND TOMORROW!
      VP Binay hated the Marcos era way back then.
      Pero nong maluklok siya ay ganon o higit pa ang ginagawa.
      Weather-weather lang talaga. Ang nilabanan nila noon
      ay Idol na nila ngayon.
      This is Pinoy’s politics kaya mahirap tayong umunlad. Nilalabanan natin ang masama pero sa bandang huli ay di rin naman pala naiiba ang mga layunin.
      Kelan kaya tayo magkakaroon ng makatotohanang pagbabago?????or meron pa kaya tayong pag-asa Pilipinas??

      • nakawan

        simple reason is Binay was highly covetous of the power the Marcoses held. that’s why he’s building his own dynasty

    • boldyak

      experience ni Pnoy sa house of representative?…ano ginawa nya?..nagbubutas ng silya…hahaha…

      • Tommy

        From Wikipedia:

        As a member of the House of Representatives, Aquino passed numerous house bills and resolutions:

        House Bill No. 4251, granting annual productivity incentives to all workers in the private sector.

        House Bill No. 4397, strengthening the regulatory power of the Department of Trade and Industry to effectively enforce consumer laws.

        House Bill No. 4252, increasing the penalties for non-compliance of
        the prescribed increases and adjustments in the wage rates of workers.

        House Bill No. 3616, extending the reglementary period for the educational qualification for the Philippine National Police.

        House Bill No. 1842, providing for the codification of criminal laws.

        House Resolution No. 65, inquiry in aid of legislation into the
        policies and processes of the Energy Regulatory Commission in granting rate increases to electric utilities.

        House Resolution No. 788, a house bill Aquino is reportedly proudest
        of, which created a Congressional Oversight Committee to check and
        study the use of intelligence funds by government agencies, thus
        ensuring that allocated funds are actually used for the purposes they
        were originally intended for.

        Aquino served on numerous committees as a member of the Congress of the Philippines:

        Civil
        Political & Human Rights
        Public Order & Security
        Transportation & Communications
        Agriculture
        Banks & Financial Intermediaries
        Peoples’ Participation
        Suffrage and Electoral Reforms
        Appropriations
        Natural Resources
        Trade & Industry
        Good Government
        Inter-Parliamentary Relations & Diplomacy
        Energy
        Export Promotion
        Public Order & Safety

        Aquino became Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives on November 8, 2004

        Aquino was also Chairman of the Board of the Central Luzon Congressional Caucus.

      • boldyak

        are the bills you mentioned have been passed into laws?…hahahaha…dami ka ngang sinabi wala naman naipasang law sa mga bills na yan…hahahaha..sbi ko nga sa iyo, nagbubutas lang ng silya…check mo records ng senate kung may naipasang bill na naging law…hahaha..kakatawa…

      • Tommy

        Dunno, can’t be bothered to check, and I think we both know that even if you were presented with proof that those were passed you probably would come up with something else to weasel out of admitting you are wrong anyway.

      • boldyak

        hahaha….you have to prove it…awww…sorry that you can’t because i ma telling you there was never a law passed by your boss…just don’t mislead people…passing a bill can be done by anybody members of the senate…have that bill passed as a Law is the real work of senators…kaya nga legislative body tawag jan…they pass laws not just pass bills…you are misleading people to believe that Pnoy has made laws…and I say NADA

      • Tommy

        I don’t ‘have’ to do anything. If we ‘had’ to prove our statements, YOU would have to prove that P-Noy hadn’t actually done anything in the House, but we both know you aren’t capable of doing so

        Keep on moving those goalposts, loser.

      • boldyak

        hahaha….you keep on defending by insinuating that Pnoy has done something, now that your lies are exposed you throw the ball to me to prove that your boss has not done something?….just see the records of the senate…you may find it in internet, show me what law that he authored has been passed…because i can see none…hahaha..since you can’t show proof, who is the loser?….

      • Tommy

        I haven’t ‘kept on’ doing anything, moron. I’ve made one statement, which I said from the start was copy pasted, and then told you I can’t be bothered to actually do any research, as we both know you’re just going to ignore it, or move the goal posts.

        People like you are a waste of time, and I think we both know that. So yeah, you’re a loser. I hope this helps.

      • eduardoaz

        Absolutely, and until now banoy has done nothing except talking and giving figures that the economy is in its high level. Juan dela Cruz is still poor and poorer where the multinational companies whom the administration is protecting become rich and richer.

Ang tatay ay isa pang walang ibubuga at takot ma bulgar ang tunay na dahilan kung bakit niya nilalabag ang saligang batas.
