UNA candidate sees red over Aquino’s yellow rap

LEGAZPI CITY—President Aquino should not begrudge other parties from sporting yellow as their campaign color and should not lose his head over such trivialities, an opposition senatorial candidate said here on Monday.

Zambales Rep. Milagros “Mitos” Magsaysay, a senatorial candidate of the opposition United Nationalist Alliance (UNA), said the colors chosen by local parties should not concern the President, as there are far more important matters that demand his attention.

Magsaysay was reacting to reports that the President chided the UNA for having local candidates in General Santos City who were using yellow as their campaign color.

Yellow is the official color of the President’s Liberal Party. It is the signature color of Aquino’s mother, the late President Corazon Aquino, who battled dictator Ferdinand Marcos in a snap presidential election in 1986 wearing yellow dresses to signify the Filipinos’ struggle for freedom.

“I think the President should stop looking at trivialities, as far as the election is concerned. What he should focus on is how to address the problems of the country, not the uniforms of local candidates,” Magsaysay told reporters here.

For instance, criticizing local candidates for wearing yellow despite not being affiliated with Team PNoy will not solve the power shortage in General Santos City, she said.

Magsaysay also said that in the first place, no group owns any color.

“Does Team PNoy have a patent for the color yellow? Have they bought the ‘rights’ to that color?” she said.

In a separate statement, UNA campaign manager Toby Tiangco said the alliance was not trying to mislead the voters.

The UNA’s national campaign color is orange, he said, but its local allies are free to choose any color for their campaign.

Tiangco pointed out that some of the local allies of Team PNoy use colors other than yellow.

    Don’t be too defensive Mitos… anyway, most of your team mates including your leaders have already stated that “although they are oppositionists, they are not against the President”… (read double talk)….you are more than welcome to wear yellow, just remember that the yellow colour, amongst others, symbolize good government, transparency, daang tuwid and anti-corruption qualities that UNA does not posses…. be true to yourself please… it is either UNA or Yellow

      Read their lips, Mitos. It doesn’t take a genius to conclude where your local UNA candidates’ preferences are. That’s what should worry you more.

  • Kiro Nazakato

    Nobody has a patent over yelllow color_ but if the intention of the opposing is to defraud the public, to gain support and sympathy, that is a sham and fakery. It is obnoxious!! Sa election, bayan ang hahatol Mitos!!!

      hey pinoy idiot, you are fond of using “pitiful” it doesnt sound well, the appropriate word to use is “pathetic” palibhasa estupidong pinoy ka na ang naabot mong kaalaman ay hanggang talampakan lang at noong ikaw ay sanggol pa dala ng matinding kahirapan ng iyong magulang ay hindi ka napalain ng masustansyang pagkain, in other words, undernourished, and because your brain has been severely suffered , ikaw ay nawalan ng kahihiyan, to put it in a nutshell, walanghiya ka na gonggong ka pa

  • Eric

    si Milagros pala ,akala ko kong sino, so when I saw the name I did not continue reading the article, sayang ang time ko.

  • farmerpo

    Ang ibig sabihin ni preidente, gaya gaya puto maya. Pumatol naman ang Mitos. Siya taya. Mga bata nga naman.

    • regd

      Sino si preidente?

    • Voice Combo

  • regd

    For her age Mitos has nice legs, that’s all I can say.

    • Voice Combo

  • penoy2012

    Kaya nga pinatkbong pilit si jun magsaysay, kasi takot team pnoy kay mitos, lalo na ng suportado sya ng white vote.

    • prince_janus

      ‘di dahil suportado siya ng white vote ay dapat na siya iboto. di na natin kailangan pa dagdagan ang mga kurakot sa senado. over populated na ang mga buwaya doon.

      • dapogiguy

        paanong naging kurakot si mitos.. sige nga!!! ni walang nakuhang pofk barrel yan…

  • Hellomr

    Let us bring down a faked magsaysay…

    • etomacq

      Mitos will get my 1 and only vote…

      • Handiong

        Kawawa ka naman. It speaks volumes about yourself.

      • etomacq

        mas kawawa kayo kung mga alipores ni Noynoy ang iboboto nyo.. ipagpapatuloy lang nila ang walang kwentang serbisyo ng gobyerno.. patuloy lang kayo mabibiktima ng kanilang pagsisinungaling.

      • dapogiguy

        me too mitos will get 10 vote in my family circle…for mitos only,…

      • Luthmar

        Goof luck to you and dapogiguy.

      • etomacq

        thanks.. I hate penoy team because ayaw ko ng pamamalakad ni Noynoy sa gobyerno natin. Wala rin naman ako mapili sa UNA kundi si Mitos lang.. matalino, palaban at may good political background.

        Meron pa ako isang nagugustuhan.. si Hagedorn.

      • southDUDE

        Kakalungkot naman ng senado mo. Only Mitosera

      • etomacq

        mas ok ang isang Mitos kaysa 12 na penoy..

  • honest man

    Si Mitos wala na bang ibang issue. Pati mga kulay pinapansin na? That issue is not even worth a grain of salt. Pabayaan mo na si Pnoy kahit pumotok man baga nya. Para lang mapansin ka, pinuna mo pa yon? Masyadong mababa.

    • boldyak

      ayaw mong punahin ang kulay, pero si penoy mo pinupuna…ano ba talaga?…hahaha

    • piskay

      si pnoy nga ang unang nagsalita sa kulay,parang sya ang may ari sa kulay yellow at ayaw ipagamit ng iba.di ba bawal yang color coding sabi ni sixto?

  • JosephNess

    For instance, criticizing local candidates for wearing yellow despite not being affiliated with Team PNoy will not solve the power shortage in General Santos City, she said.

    yes, it will not solve, nevertheless, can make it worse putting them in office, it will rub them to vote the wrong candidates…faking to use yellow is cheating the people’s vote to believe that they are the chosen candidates…people must know who’s real and who’s fake…and this lady is one of them…

    • patukar

      It should be a chosen disciples for cult followers.

    • Concur_Dissent

      Fake na Magsaysay na, Fake pa na yellow follower!

  • Handiong

    Branding plays a major role in politics. Voters’ perception can be shaped by symbolism. Yellow has been the recognized political brand or symbol of the Aquinos. So, it is not a trivial matter when non-Aquino allies use the color yellow because it can deceive voters into thinking that they are with the President. Isang uri ng panloloko yan. Not surprising dahil ang nasa UNA mga manloloko.

    • JuanTamadachi

      good one

  • Guest

    Imagine less than P200 million ang SALN ni Jinggoy. Where did he get that? Sa drug lord, gamblers or sa smugglers.

  • Bowie Albert

    • piskay

      • http://www.facebook.com/leonardo.glorioso Leonardo Porte Glorioso

        matalino at pranka? eh, bakit pinabayaan niya ang mga masamang ginawa ni gma – naging sunod-sunuran lamang siya – dahil ba maraming pera na ibinigay ni gma sa kaniya – marahil…

      • piskay

      • cry_freedom

        Ito naman si piskay, nag bubulag bulagan. Tumingin ka sa kaliwa mo, maraming ebedensiya kang makikita sa mga katiwalian ni Gloria. Kung ayaw mo naman sa kaliwa, sa kanan naman at naguumapaw ang ebedensiya diyan. O di kaya sa harap naman, at matatabunan ka talaga ng ebedensiya.

        O kaya naman, Open your eyes and look at the sky and see…

      • piskay

  • Hatutubo

    Well everybody knows na si VP Binay talagang masipag yan at maasahan ni PNoy. Alam naman ng publiko yan.

    • tilney

      Ano masipag mangurakot kagaya noon nasa Makati siya..

  • RMsantiago

    From excellent, naging very good na lang si VP Binay. Pero okay lang yun, still mataas pa rin ang rating niya.

  • hustlergalore

    hinampas ba ni mitos ang mesa habang sinabi niya ang mga ito? LOL

  • Nelson Baguya II

    Jobo Magsaysay 10X!!!!!!!!!!heck, pambuwisit sa umaga ang lakas2 ng tug2.

  • Guest

    Umiiyak at nagpapapadyak na siguro si Alan Cayetano ngayon dahil bumaba
    siya sa survey

  • http://www.facebook.com/bart.thinong Bart Thinong

    Si Pnoy walang inatupag kondi intriga at tsismis, pati pagsuot nang yellow dinali.Ugaling TRAPO kasi at BIMPO, ang tao pag walang alam at dereksyon ang buhay intriga at tsismis ang gagawin. Kawawang Pinas nadali na naman nang Bopols na Leader.

  • ike1684

    pano ako maniniwala kay mitos eh walang credibility yan.taga himod ng puwet ni arroyo. ang taong boboto sa kanya para mo naring binoto si gma.. kung talagang may malasakit si.mitos bakit tuta parin sya ni arroyo? malaki siguro nakukulimbat nya kay arroyo

  • Tatlong Hari

    Katulad ni Pichay sa pechayan pupulutin ang bungangareng si Mitos.

  • ARIKUTIK

    Basta kulay yellow may sakit …… sa utak !

    • lex

      Bastat MABAHO BUNGANGA, IKAW YON!

      • JuanTamadachi

        LOL

  • cry_freedom

    Mitos, ang UNA, katulad mo, ay nagsusuot ng yellow dahil gusto ninyong manalo!

    Talaga kayo, pati kulay yellow, ginagamit ninyo sa panlilinlang sa taong bayan para lang manalo kayong mga taga UNA.

    And you call panlilinlang a triviality?

    Tumigil ka nga Mitos!

  • talagalangha

    ito ang maganda…mas mananalo pa ang hindi tunay na Magsaysay kesa sa tunay na Magsaysay, kasi naman eh di hamak na mas magaling!

    obvious naman na iilan lang o iisa ang nagkokomento dito laban at palaging pabor sa Penoy na baklita, at halata sa pananalita pa lamang, at halatang mga baklita din, dahil sa mga kabastusan at low quality writing…

    go, go Mitos…you will have our family and friends’ ONLY vote….along with 2 others,
    Gordon at Hagedorn….kayo lang 3 ang nakikita kong malinis: lahat ay certified trapos, yes puro basura lang….

    to the Malacang defenders and bloggers, don’t bothe, nobody listens to you anymore…after 3 years, kita na namin ang katotohanan…

    TRAYDOR na presidente! mana talaga sa lolo, ama at ina…puro makapili…

    • etomacq

      good. gusto ko rin si hagedorn…

  • jpastor

    Naka-score si Mitos kaya lang hindi ko pa rin siya iboboto. Kung hindi ba naman may kato din siya sa utak na sumama sa isang ex-con-ex-president na bilang presidente noon pinakialaman ang huweteng at sugal para kumita. Kung matino ang isip ni Mitos sasama ba siya sa 3-kingkoys.

  • etomacq

    Noynoy should not be wearing yellow..

    Yellow symbolizes Ninoy Aquino who is pro-poor, against corruption and against political dynasties… yan ang pinaglaban ni Ninoy against Marcos at lahat ng qualities na yan wala si Noynoy…

  • JuanTamadachi

    That some opposition candidates are adopting yellow as their campaign color to me is an admission from them that team PNoy is the team to beat.
    Why don the colors of a losing team? A bit of unsolicited advice to Mitos: Mitos you might improve your chances of winning a senate seat, which as of this time is between slim and none, by sporting the yellow color.

  • Taiko_Kauna

    yellow is 500, orange is a measly 20 bucks!

  • maysayako

    dapat ang isuot ni mitos e yung may picture ni porky pig o ni miss piggy…

  • Kirat

    Mitos, what happened to your campaign to bring down fuel prices? Color-coding at this stage of the campaign is just a lot of dead air.

    Intindihin mo ung babayarang gastos at pagkakaablahan mo pagkatapos mong matalo sa eleksyon hindi ung ibang partido ang inisip mo.
