Team PNoy questions Albay gov’s UNA links


LUKBAN, Quezon—The ruling Liberal Party’s (LP) head in Bicol, Albay Gov. Joey Salceda, apparently wants to have his cake and eat it too, and the senatorial candidates on the administration Team PNoy who are struggling to break into the Top 12 in the polls  don’t like it a bit.

Salceda, who drummed up a million votes in Bicol for President Aquino in the 2010 election, announced on Sunday that he would vote for opposition senatorial candidate Nancy Binay, raising hackles on Team PNoy.

Former Senators Ramon “Jun” Magsaysay Jr. and Jamby Madrigal, both running again for the Senate but doing poorly in the preelection polls, on Monday questioned Salceda’s pitching for Binay, daughter of Vice President Jejomar Binay, one of the leaders of the opposition coalition United Nationalist Alliance (UNA).

Salceda reportedly clarified that he did not endorse Binay’s senatorial run during her visit to Albay on Sunday.

He also reportedly said President Aquino’s goal of a clean sweep of the senatorial race by his team would not happen in Albay.

JV and Jack, too

Salceda reportedly said he was also supporting UNA senatorial candidates Joseph Victor “JV” Ejercito Estrada, son of former President Joseph Estrada, and Jack Enrile, son of Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile.

Magsaysay, Madrigal and former party-list Rep. Risa Hontiveros are racing against time to convince voters to send them to the Senate.

Like Magsaysay and Madrigal, Hontiveros is having difficulty moving into the Top 12 in the polls. She nearly landed a seat in the Senate in her first run in 2010, finishing the race in 13th place.

Binay, unheard of in Philippine politics until February, is safely ensconced in third place in the latest Social Weather Stations preelection poll.

“This is not right,” Magsaysay said, referring to Salceda’s openly supporting Binay.

“To think that [Salceda] is the head of [the Liberal Party chapter in Bicol]. It might have been a personal choice, but he is expected to have additional responsibilities given his position in [the party],” Magsaysay said in Filipino.


Asked whether he thought what Salceda did was improper, Magsaysay replied, “Yes.”

Magsaysay, Madrigal and Hontiveros arrived here along with reelectionist Sen. Aquilino “Koko” Pimentel III and Aurora Rep. Juan Edgardo Angara for the Bicol leg of Team PNoy’s campaign.

President Aquino led the team’s rally, held in the Southern Luzon State University gym.

Magsaysay said Salceda could also have “deep, compelling reasons” for his choice of Binay, which the Liberals immediately took as a hostile move against the party.

But Madrigal asked the public to “read between the lines” despite Salceda’s insistence that his announcement should not be considered an endorsement.

Salceda is considered one of the more colorful characters in Philippine politics.

He once called his ex-benefactor, former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, “a lucky bitch” for surviving relentless attacks by her detractors.

Salceda was one of the Lakas-Kampi-CMD leaders who designed a campaign strategy for presidential standard-bearer Gilbert “Gibo” Teodoro in 2010.

But when it became clear through the preelection polls that Aquino would be elected president, Salceda bolted the Arroyo party, joined the LP and worked to help send Aquino to Malacañang.

‘Setback’ for Salceda

Magsaysay said Salceda’s announcement “does not look nice” and added that the governor should brace himself for “a setback” for his indiscretion.

“Salceda is crossing to the other side. That does not show a good example as a party leader. That is a distortion of the President’s good [government] goals,” Magsaysay said.

Madrigal said it was possible Salceda was beholden to the Vice President, hence his announcement of support for Binay’s daughter.

Political observers believe Salceda is looking ahead and trying to get in the good graces of the Vice President, who has made known his plan to contest the race for Malacañang in 2016.

Magsaysay and Madrigal warned Salceda that he could be hurting his own credibility in Bicol.


Asked whether Salceda should be sanctioned by the party, Magsaysay said: “He does not need to be sanctioned, but he should explain himself. His conscience should tell him that.”

Madrigal and Hontiveros acknowledged that Salceda had a right to choose candidates.

Hontiveros dismissed the issue, saying Salceda had always been known for being “independent-minded.”

Angara and Pimentel, in separate interviews, agreed that Salceda could have been expressing a personal opinion, and refused to take sides.

Not the only one

UNA’s JV Estrada thanked Salceda for his support and said the Albay governor was not the only one from the LP who supported opposition candidates.

“There are many who have committed to support me, but I will not name them until after the elections so their party would not retaliate against them,” Estrada told reporters in Bulan, Sorsogon, on Monday.

He said he had received information that the LP was asking their local allies to submit copies of their sample ballots to the party’s headquarters for a review of their contents.

The information means the LP no longer trusts its local allies to support its national candidates, Estrada said.—With a report from Leila Salaverria in Sorsogon

    It would be interesting to hear why this governor is supporting Nancy… Maybe he sees something the people can’t see! Share naman Gov!

    Alam ko si Nancy ay tourism graduate, hardly a course in college that would ensure an effective and efficient law maker

    Alam ko si Nancy has not held any private or public position of importance that could probably groom her to be a good law maker

    Alam ko si Nancy does not have any particular skill that could help her be a senator of value to the philippines.

    Alam ko si Nancy ay super alalay lamang ng kanyang daddy who, single handedly thrust his daughter into politics simply because of his audacity that his name is the most popular name in “good political practice”….

    If she is not all these at pawang mga kasinungalingan lang etong lahat, baka naman Gob pwede mo kaming ma-enlighten….

The reason kung bakit vocal ka, kc pinapakita mo lang tunay mong kulay, na balimbing ka, at wala kang prinsipyo. You are unprincipled, and a fence-sitter, and wanted to be in good grace of the opposing camps! Ang ginawa mo before kay Gibo, ginagawa mo sa Team Pnoy ngayon!!

      it’s his prerogative to show who are the candidates he supports.. eh ano kung admin or opposition?? as a leader, his loyalty to his party ends where his loyalty to his country begins.. if some candidates in the admin are not fit to be leaders, then as a local leader he should serve as an example that those who are not capable of serving should not be voted.. although, binay is a terrible choice to support, the other candidates in the opposition that gov. salceda supports are worthy of votes because of track records and experience.. there is nothing wrong with supporting an UNA candidate if such candidate is worthy of the position and there is a duty placed upon the shoulders of a leader to help his constituency decide on the right leaders to choose.. it should always be the people over the party..

      • Kiro Nazakato

        Whatttt??? Nancy, Ejercito, and Jack Enrile, mas qualified kay Hontiveros, Maggsaysay and Madrigal???- precisely because these are the three candidates he will ease out, if he supports the purported 3 UNA candidates!!! Ano motivation ni Salceda_- are these 3 UNA candidates more brilliant, more qualified, and with more briliant candidates, that he believes in his heart of heart they deserve his vote, and abandon some of his coalleagues? NAAAA!!! Segurista at oportunista, oo!!. More to the point, unprincipled, at traydor sa Partido Liberal!! Kung may personal candidates maintindihan, pero manahimik. But to openly support- that is the height of unreason, and it simply put, it is TREASON of the highest order!! Kahiya, bicolano ka pa naman!!

    Nagumpisa ng magiyakan ang mga dogyot. Biruin ninyo chairman ng LP sa Bicol Region si Governor Salceda. The same region which gave PNoy the highest margin in the last presidential election. Tapos ngayon leaning na sa UNA. Pati kakampi nila umaayaw na sa kanila. Noong nakaraang presidential election ang bango ni Salceda dahgil highest margin ang binigay ng Bicol Region kay PNoy tapos ngayon nilalait na ng LP. Mga pasaway. Isa klang ang ibig sabihin niyan. Natauhan na si Salceda. Nagsisi na mga dogyot.

    It’s time to jump ship, the LP and PNoy’s admin is sinking fast. S.O.S. SWS and Pulse Asia plus Comelec hocus PCOS.

      Bro saan mo naman nakuha na ang albay (region V) had the highest vote for Pnoy? FYI, even region VII had 1.3 M votes compared to the 1M votes pnoy got from region V. A simple check with the comelec will give you the numbers. You can also check the 1.7M votes that Pnoy got in region III.

      Manure spreader. Here’s the spread. Salceda was promised by Binay for a juicy position in 2016 when Binay became president based on latest survey. We don’t know who will run against Binay. Salceda’s forward looking, hoping his high horse won’t break a leg in 2016 race.

      • catalansbarce

        Shrewd.., meaning “TUSO” sa English-Filipino dictionary ko spitfire kahit
        e google mo.. it is one of the meanings. Si Salceda ay isang pulitikong “tuso”
        ang ibig kong sabihin sa shrewd. Kung mali yan.., okey thank you professor,

    Salceda has been promised by Binay to a more juicy position when he became president in 2016. Check that out.


      J. Binay wil not and won’t be the next Philippine president, period. Bear this in mind and comeback to me after 2016 election.


        sino magiging presidente si mama’s Boy and Evat man Mar Roxas. Ano inoffer sau cabinet position para makapagsalita ng tapos tandaan mo isang boto ka wag ka magsalita ng tapos at wag mo diktahan ang ibang tao


        Bakit masama ba loob mo dahil hindi magiging presidente si Binay mo? Tingnan mo na lang ang kanyang ginagawa ngayon. Lahat ng pamilya sinisingit sa pwesto from local to national vice president pa lang iyan. Ano pa kaya kung maging presidente? Baka pati halaga nilang aso at pusa ipupuwesto sa malacanang pag nag presidente yang Binay mo. Hindi inutil at sira ang ulo ng karamihan na pinoy kung iyan ang iniisip mo , ok?


        mas lalong di naman uto uto at padidikta sau ang mga Pilipino sino gusto mo maging Presidente si Mar Roxas lalong nahirapan ang Pilipinas pag sya nag naupo. walang Problema kung buong pamilya ay nasa public service as long gumagawa sila ng mabuti sa kapwa like sa mga OFW ilan na ang naantala nag bitay sa ibang bansa at napalaya sa kulungan kunbdi kay Binay, ilang bahay at lupa naipamahagi nya kasi nagwork sya di tulad ng gusto mo presidente makapag photo ops lang kahit iaantala ang barko galing sabah punta ng Pilipinas maip[akita lang na kunwari na may malasakit sya. Laganap ang kidnapping ng mga bata as DILG secretary ano ginagawa nya di mo man lang sya narinig mag comment or utasan nag mga pulis na hawak nya para tugisin ang mga kidnapper ginagawa nya is nasa Iloilo sya nangangampanya tulad ng tamad mo Presidente. Kung ayaw mo naman talaga sa kanya lumaban ka ng Presidente sa 2016 tingnan natin kung mananalo ka.

    Aurora Quezon the First Lady of the Philippines who refuse to receive a pension and don’t want to run for public office. She and daughter where ambushed and killed by communist group Huk Balahap. She chaired Philippine Red Cross until she died.
    Look at that, we have a real First Lady who doesn’t to be in politics. She still served the Filipino heroically thru the Red Cross. No wonder a province was named after her.

Kung siya lang daw ang masusunod 10-2 ang gusto niya in favor of the administration. Pero hindi daw niya kayang baguhin yong listahan dahil pinagusapan na sa meeting ng lahat ng mga LP local officials. O yan may pampalubag loob na si PNoy mo. Makakaasa na kayo sa isang boto ni Salceda.


        Tobias BADING! ADIK!

  • speaksoftlylove

    What I found funny in this issue is the demeanor of Koko Pimentel. He is calling the LP leadership to sanction Salceda when he is not even an LP member. Worse, his own party PDP Laban is in a mess and his local leaders are honoring its original commitment with UNA. Koko, manahimik ka na lang at wala kang pakialam dyan sa LP. Di mo nga kayang ayusin yang sarili mong partido nakikialam ka pa, patawa ka. Malalim ang dahilan niyan. For one, Ziga’s son who is an original LP member was junk in favor of Lagman’s son, a new political butterfly recruit of LP. Perforce, Ziga’s son, who is an LP is UNA’s official candidate for congressman against a turncoat Lagman’s son. Sukab pa itong mga Lagman. Konsehal dati sa Quezon City yong anak niya pero nagresign at umuwi sa Bicol mameet lang ang residency. Power hungry to the bone. Sinong Bicolano ang di maiinis dyan kay PNoy?

    • celtics

      “Angara and Pimentel, in separate interviews, agreed that Salceda could have been expressing a personal opinion, and refused to take sides.”

      from what i read in this article there was no mention of KP asking LP to sanction Salceda.
      Follow us: @inquirerdotnet on Twitter | inquirerdotnet on Facebook

      • speaksoftlylove

        That is what you’ve “heard.” This is what I read, quote:

        “Reelectionist Sen. Aquilino “Koko” Pimentel, who incidentally is the
        “president” of the PDP-Laban where the vice president is the party
        chairman — Partido Demokratiko Pilipino-Laban ng Bayan (PDP-Laban) — but
        currently “on leave,” said the LP should at least instill party
        discipline on Salceda.”

        This, even as their campaign manager Sen. Franklin Drilon already said that he respects the decision of the governor.

        Pimentel underscored the need to “penalize” Salceda so that those
        “wayward examples or those with wayward plans will no longer be
        duplicated by copycats as they will already be nipped in the bud.”

He is junked by his own party machinery, and dependent on Team Pnoy resources which prioritized the election of Bam and Risa. BOBO KOKO.

  • penoy2012

    Politcians of the same color, flock together. Di ba black si joey at si binay?

  • Lakan Dupil

    Karapatan naman ni Joey ang kanyang ginawa pero dahil leader ka ng
    partido mukhang may mali at bumabanat syang patalikod laban sa kanyang
    partido. Sa bagay ang iyong pagpili din dapat ay hindi dahil sa partido
    kundi sa iyong paniniwala kung sino ang makatutulong sa bayan (Minsan
    pinipili natin hindi ang makatutulong sa bayan kundi kung saan tayo
    makakakuha ng personal na benepisyo). Resign ka na lang Joey (para man
    lamang sa kahihiyan) kung hindi ka naniniwala sa sarili mong partido.


      di papayagan ni PNOY yan at Mar Roxas Kailangan nila si Salceda sa 2016 elections. Kaya malakas loob ni salceda kasi wla syang kalaban sa Albay at kawalan ng Team Pnoy un

  • etomacq

    karpatan ni Salceda ang piliin ang gusto nya i-endorse.. wag naman masyadong i-harras ng penoy team si Salcedo. Wala sila karapatan diktahan ang freedom of choice nino man.

    • popeyee

      Sa political party, walang puwang ang personal choice. Kahit yaw mo pa sa kandidato ng partido obligado kang suportahan ito. Otherwise, mag resign ka na lang sa partido mo.

    • Batang Altura

      ung ordinaryong tao ka lang di ka talaga dapat diktahan pero kung opisyal ka ng isan partido di dapat personal ang masunod, sana di ka na lang nag-salita para di mabatikos, iboto mo kung sinong gusto mo di naman malalaman ng team P-noy yun..di harassment ito..

      • etomacq

        dapat talaga sinungaling ang isang kaalyado para mabango sa Presidente.. yan ang mahirap sa pulutika, kailangan mo magsinungaling para lang mapagbigyan ang partido.. kailangan ng mga pulitko magsinungaling para sa kapakanan ng partido..

        kaya dapat lang na wag pagkatiwalaan ang mga pulitiko dahil sunodsunuran lang sa partido.

      • etomacq

        Sanay ang gobyernong ito na mangharass ng kalaban sa pulitika.. pag kalaban nila sa pulitika sigurado kung ano anong kaso ang isasampa sayo para lang durugin ka.

        pag kaalyado naman nila, untouchable.

        yan ang pulitika.

    What Salceda did is an indication this early of what local kingpins will do to ensure their own political survival. They are thinking beyond 2013 and they are just being pragmatic. For them, Senyor Simyon is already a goner and can not do anything anymore against them in the next three years. The leadership will need the local kingpins for the bigger game in 2016 where it matters – 2016 will be a make-or-break exercise for certain taipans and entrenched business interests. For the LP leadership, if they believe that they can get a 10-2 or even a 10-3, they should stop being petty. Anyway, they will already have gained a majority in the Senate. Even the wife beater’s rants do not matter anymore as he is not even a legitimate LP member. At least, Mr. Frank is showing wisdom with his level-headed approach on the matter.

  • mhonski

    ang hirap sa balimbing di nya alam kung ano ang talagang kulay nya…

  • wawa2172

    Madrigal, Magsaysay and Hontiveros need not worry, the government machinery is backing them up with no less than the President of the Philippines campaigning for them. Salceda is a turncoat but he is needed by the Team PNoy in Bicol as the governor have a clout over the rich vote province. Local government candidates cannot be relied on kaya si PNoy grabe na ang ubo sa pangangampanya para sa Team PNoy. Salceda is just true to himself that the 12-0 swept will not happen in Bicol and it won’t bring good to the country. Mahirap din na lapdog nang presidente ang senate.

    • Batang Altura

      ganito sana ang mga comments may sense…

  • Joaquin Fernandez

    What do we expect of Gov. Salceda? He is just looking past 2016, hoping maybe that the tide would shift to the opposition. He is an astute political shrewd, opportunist in the category of Enrile and de Venecia.

  • diy

    how disgusting these conglomerate of reactions are..seriously. from a fellow bicolano.
    bumisita lang ung tao, wala sa konstitusyon na ipagbawal ang travel..di uubra sa aming mga bicolano ang ganyang alimantak. puro panlilibak. at parang kilala nyo ung tao?

    • Batang Altura

      ano ba ibig sabihin ng uragon na ito ?

  • gabrail

    maraming BOBO dito, di marunong umintindi, mga ugali pang kriminal….di porke
    kalaban mo sa politika pipirsonalin mo na? bisita yong tao at sa
    kasagsagan ng Magayon Festival at panahon ng pag promote sa tourismo sa Albay ni
    Gov. Joey itong pag bisita ni Binay…kung di ka ba naman BOBO, palalayasin mo yong bisita mo????

  • Shinso

    I agree with Salceda, freedom of choice ika nga, but, why Nanbi? If he has good experience in philippine politics, he should know better…. i guess may of us has nothing against Nabi, but the senate is too high to aspire, she should start from the ranks at least councilor muna… I think Salceda is preparing him self for 2016…..

    • Philcruz

      Like Enrile, Sr., Salceda is definitely one adaptable chameleon but eventually all chameleons will pay for their traitorous positions. He considers himself an excellent strategist but look where Gibo ended up.

  • honest man

    Klaro na si Salceda is playing safe. Roxas must not trust him. He will bolt LP once he feels that Binay will be making it to Malacanang. He will be having brighter days with Binay, Enrile, and Estrada. But just the same, he will throw them off the pit when someone shows a better edge.

  • Oscar Diaz

  • XG1972

    Sipain na yan!

  • johnlordphilip

    Gov. Salceda shows all the signs and symptoms of TRAPO syndrome! For a healthy Philippines, remove all TRAPOS from government.

    • etomacq

      di wala ng opisyal na natira sa gobyerno

  • ting0508

    PNoy can definitely ask Salceda if he is still loyal to LP otherwise let Salceda join UNA. That’s it! And if that happens, LP should support the opponent of Salceda!

    • albayano

      sorry, salceda is running unopposed…Joey Salceda is doing this for the good of Albay, and we, Albayanos know this.. He may be called political butterfly but who cares, this is for the benefit of Albayanos. He’s not trapo, he only knows how Albay will benefit from these national trapos —- play like a trapo…Non-Albayanos will never understand this, but we Albayanos support Salceda’s personal political moves.

      • Batang Altura

        eto pa isang bakla parang sinabi na di baleng mag-puta may makain lang di importante dignidad umasenso lang , umasenso ba Albay sa pamumuno ni Baklita ?personal na nga motibo suporta ka pa din, siguro myembro ka ng federasyon..

      • albayano

        pakaunon ta ka jan ki lada… harayuon buboy ang argumento mo…aki ka pa talaga, nagdudunong dunungan…

    • Voice Combo

      tama ka dian pre mga bwakaw ang salsal cedang yan daig pa ang balimding…punta sya sa impiyerno kasama ang mga binay na yan,, kasama na rin ang mga una nong mag yan,,,,

    • Batang Altura

      klangan pa bang tanungin sya kitang kita na , syempre tatanggi yan pag kaharap si P-noy , simple mathicmathic lang yan..

  • acidicboy

    salceda was one of the first to leave gma’s inner circle when the going started to get tough… why do people expect more of him? once binay’s stock is rising, lilipat din iyang professional trapo na iyan.

    • prince_janus

      He’s a real double blade human being!

    • speaksoftlylove

      Di na siya lilipat. He is already a VP Binay disciple.

  • resortman

    Bicolanos have a mind of their own, di sila mga tuta ni Salceda…Most politicos in Bicol are trapos in the real sense of the word..Bicolanos are wise voters, they cannot be suaded. I just hope so till now..abangan!!

    • speaksoftlylove

      If Bicolanos are “wise voters and cannot be suaded” then why is it that “most politicos in Bicol are trapos”?

      You are obviously confused. Itulog mo yan.

      • resortman

        surely im sober, and surely most are wise voters…the thing is walang mapagpilian…trapo as usual..getz mo? read between the lines…haha

  • Fermin Villegas

    bakit may editorializing na nangyayari agad sa inquirer. unang sentence pa lang – “The ruling Liberal Party head… apparently wants to have his cake and eat it, too.”

  • prince_janus

    Gov. Salceda ay isang bruha! Sabi ni Madam Badiday!

  • Jocken Dano

    well, there is nothing wrong in your choice whom to vote but being an LP leader courtesy tell us to keep it by yourselves . . .

  • akoypinoi

    VP Binay probably promised him to be one of his senators in 2016. As for JV, maybe Erap gave him millions or a promise to help him for senate in 2016.. or both?

    • speaksoftlylove

      So what?

  • Guest

    Alam n’yo, ang desisyon na lang ni Chiz sa 2016 ang hinihintay ng taumbayan. Kung gusto ni Chiz na maging VP, bakit hindi. Pwedeng-pwede.

    • speaksoftlylove

      Si Heart Evangelista na lang patakbuhin mong VP sa 2016 at baka may tsamba pa.

  • Rogers Nelson Uy

    wag kayong makulit salceda, di yan pwede ke enrile.

  • kilabot

    naloko na.
    may mga lp sumusuporta sa una;
    meron ba una sumusuporta sa lp?
    it really doesn’t matter;
    lp and una are one and the same animal;
    have you heard noykapon attacking binay?
    have you heard binay attacking noykapon?
    truth is, the aquino and binay families are bff;
    as they support binay for vp in 2010,
    the aquinos will support binay as pres in 2016;
    jejomar will be noykapon’s insurance from political vendetta;
    don’t be taken in for a ride like the yellow insects;
    look ahead, folks.

        Kalokohan pinagsasabi mo. Kahit isa sa team penoy wala ako iboboto.. gobyerno ni Noynoy puro mga korap din…

    • Bart Thinong

      absolutely right…nakuha mo kaibigan, salamat at naka intiende ka hindi tulad nang iba na hanggang ngayon ay tulog pa dahil sa politics patronage.

  • gryzyxwoz

    Salceda’s support for JV, Binay, and Enrile shows us his true colors. I would never vote for those three!

    • Guest

      Gusto ni Chiz Escudero na makasalumuha ang mga kababayan natin, inaalam ang problema nila kaya naman maganda ang ranking niya sa survey.

  • pinoyislander

    LOL! kakatawa naman yung governor ng albay, trapong trapo talaga parang sina binay lang. makikipagdeal kahit sa demonyo manalo lang at yumaman

  • superlucky2

    Salceda is a political butterfly. Kung saan may masisipsip doon iyan. Bading kasi. Kahit i-indorse pa ni Salceda si Binay, Ejercito & Enrile, Bicolanos will not vote for them. Mga corrupt lalong-lalo na itong si Ejercito.

  • Guest

    Di mananalo si Cayetano sa eleksyon. Galit ang bayan sa mga ambisyoso at kurakot

    • Guest

      Galit ang tao sa mga kurakot at mayayabang na pulitiko gaya ni Cayetano. di karapatdapat maging senador

  • koolkid_inthehouse

    Most news in politics are fake with a twist of truth. that’s what I have observed.

  • sepultorero

    True to his form, Salceda has to protect his political interest after Pres. Aquino’s term. The sad part for Salceda is the fact that Binay will not win as a President in the 2016 election. His possible contenders already have his history of corruption in Makati, among others. They are merely waiting for Binay to formally announce his candidacy and they will unleash this information about him. Salceda goes down with Binay. It’s that simple in Philippine politics.

    • Taiko_Kauna

      Baka nakahanda na ang mga warrant ni Binay for plunder kapag nagkakataon. Binay assumes he is the robinhood of Makati, ngunit hinahagisan lang niya ng mga buto-buto ang maralitang lungsod ng Makati. Out of 100% na nakulimbat ni Binay swerte na kung naibahagi niya 40% sa taga makati. He is not a robinhood – wake up makati folks, ginawa lang kayong tanga ni Binay.

  • Batang Altura

    pumupwesto na ang baklitang si Salceda, ganyan talaga ugali ng bukbok na yan, iniwan din nyan si GMA nung mabango na si P-noy, buti ibinoboto pa yan ng mga taga Albay, di ba nila nakikita ang kabalbalan nyang baklang yan, marami naman bakla ang matino.pero si Salceda bukbuk na bugok pa..

    • albayano

      Nakapunta ka na ba bata sa albay?…pumunta ka ha at nang maanghangan naman ang dila mo…

  • disqus_WIkXYUshrh

    He has done this before to Gloria. Then it is not surprising why he is prematurely doing this to President Aquino today.

    Good luck mr or miss? Butterfly from Bicol. You will get your surprise in 2016.

  • Guest

    Si Chiz naman marunong tumanaw ng utang na loob yan sa mga taumbayan na nagluklok sa kanya. Busilak ang kalooban ni Chiz.

  • Guest

    Will vote for Team
    PNOY except Cayetano. No brain, no heart for the poor
