IN CASE you haven’t heard, Kris Aquino has been discharged from the Makati Medical Center. She was given a clean bill of health after she slipped in the shower last week. She was confined for almost five days after that fall.

Breaking News! I am now verifying reports that Kris’ brother, Sen. Noynoy Aquino was admitted to the same hospital yesterday… after his trust rating fell.

Pulse Asia Survey
According to a recent Pulse Asia survey, Nacionalista Party standard-bearer Manuel Villar Jr. is the most trusted presidential candidate. Villar is so trustworthy even President Arroyo trusts him.

Pulse Asia Survey II
A Pulse Asia survey revealed that Sen. Noynoy Aquino’s trust rating dropped by 8 percentage points. If it’s any consolation, the trust rating of Baby James is up by 10 points.

Pulse Asia Survey III
The latest Pulse Asia survey said 74 percent of Filipinos wouldn’t vote for a candidate endorsed by President Arroyo… to which Gilbert Teodoro said, “Malas naman ni Villar!”

Light Bites
Q: What did former Press Secretary Ignacio Bunye tell the press when he was asked about the race for president?
A: “The president has two presidential bets: one is real, the other is fake.”

Loren and Manny
The Philippine Daily Inquirer reported that Sen. Manuel Villar Jr. held Sen. Loren Legarda’s hand during an interview prompting the vice presidential bet to quip, “Napaka-sweet talaga ng presidente ko.” Reporters covering the event were surprised to hear the compliment since it marked the first time that Loren uttered such flattering remark to a man below 64 years old.

Warmest Day
Weather experts reported that the hottest day of the year so far was recorded on Feb. 24, Wednesday afternoon at 34.5 degrees Celsius. It was so hot yesterday, Manny Villar went swimming in a sea of garbage!

Warmest Day II
According to PAGASA, the hottest day of the year so far was recorded on Wednesday afternoon at 34.5 degrees Celsius. Rumors say Noynoy Aquino and the Liberal Party are alarmed by the report. With Noynoy’s temperature currently at 36.5, they are now statistically tied.

Ebumali — init yata ulo mo. Anyway, magaling ka ba sa math? Paki-check nga kung tama ito:

FACT— VILLAR HAS A MINIMUM OF 40 TV SPOTS A DAY AT A COST OF P10 MILLION EVERY DAY THE PAST 5 MONTHS FOR A TOTAL COST OF P1.5 BILLION – AND THAT IS NOT COUNTING HIS EXPENSES ON RADIO, DOLPHY, WILLLIE REVILLAME ETC, ETC. AND THE ELECTION OFFICIAL CAMPAIGN PERIOD HAS NOT EVEN STARTED – THEY SAY HIS BUDGET IS P20 BILLION AND ALL FOR A JOB THAT PAYS P200 THOUSAND A YEAR!

QUESTION — HE SAYS HE IS A GOOD BUSINESSMAN – AND IF HE IS, I WONDER WHERE HE EXPECTS TO GET HIS RETURN ON HIS AT LEAST P20 MILLION INVESTMENT. WHAT KIND OF RETURN WILL VILLAR EXPECT- GIVEN THE HIGH RISK OF THIS UNDERTAKING, HE PROBABLY EXPECTS A GOOD RETURN – MAYBE DOUBLE OR TRIPLE HIS MONEY IN SIX YEARS SAY, TO P60 BILLION.

QUESTION — WHERE CAN HE GET THAT RETURN —- TOTAL ESTIMATED BUDGET OF THE GOVERNMENT OVER THE NEXT 6 YEARS IS P10 TRILLION WITH ABOUT P1 TRILLION DISCRETIONARY – IF VILLAR MAKES C5 AND TAGA ON THE P1TRILLION OF 20% … HMMMMM.. THAT’S P200 BILLION ON AN INVESTMENT OF P20 BILLION – HMMM VILLAR IS ONE SMART BUSINESSMAN.

QUESTION — WHAT’S THE IMPACT ON THE POOR? – P200 BILLION THAT WILL CONSERVATIVELY BE LOST TO CORRUPTION AS A PAYBACK TO VILLAR’s CAMPAIGN EXPENSES CAN PAY FOR 40,000 CLASSROOMS TO SOLVE THE SHORTAGE PLUS, CREATE A MICRO LENDING FUND THAT CAN GENERATE 3.2 MILLION JOBS – CORRUPTION IS THE CAUSE OF POVERTY!

Your concerns apply to all main presidential contenders because they all spent money. Its just a matter of degree. But it does not follow that those who spent less are expecting less return. That Villar has a huge war chest means that he had a plan and was prepared for this camapign. Hindi namatatayan lang ng kamganak, tumakbo na

Hindi pwedeng ikumpara ang 20billion na magagasto sa campaign sa 200K na sweldo kung maging presidente ka, ang pagtupad sa pangarap ng isang tao ay walang katumbas na halaga. At hindi mo masusukat sa kayamanan ang success ng isang tao.

@Paul – given that Villaroyo has a big war chest, it does not still hide the question on how can he recoup his investments.

It’s but crazy to assume that businessman like Villaroyo won’t think of his ROI. We don’t by his crap na hindi nya babawiin ang ginastos nya, that’s B.S. and I know you know it.

Villaroyo is a billionaire because he was able to use his seat in power to manipulate it in order to benefit his own business…nasa Senado pa lang yan ha. What more pagka Presidente, enough of the B.S. sipag at tyaga..it should be C5 at Taga.

Ah yeah, let’s all trust Villaroyo….but wait..try watching this video

(hep, wag mo kong ituro sa website detailing his “explanation” ha?) e simpleng sagot lang naman ang gusto namin, na galing sa kanya mismo at hindi kila Remulla at Cayetano. Sana may isang presidential bet na mayroong puso ni Noynoy, talino ni Gibo, appeal ni Erap, spirituality ni Villanueva, at kwarta ni Villar.

I am just arguing that the amount of personal money spent for election is not directly correlated with the level of corruption committed once in office using historical facts. Even some generals, appointed officials and bishops enriched themselves in their positions without spending a cent in getting these. Please dont get me wrong. I am not defending Villar or any politician or endorsing any of them.

‘we cannot live by bread alone’ so is by not being corrupt
alone, we need more than that or aside from that, we need
a man who can lead at hindi ko yan nakita kay noynoy…

sabi pa nga noong isang noynoy supporter, anyway daw,
marami namang advisers, true, at kahit sinong presidente
mayroon, pero ang importante, at the end of the day, your
decision will prevail na i doubt sa case ni noynoy, mahina

Gibo and Gloria are in the same party. that’s all. whoever is the head of the party will call the shots. si Gibo ang pinuno ng Lakas ngayon.

Besides, what i’m liking about Gibo is the CONSISTENCY of his character, and his willingness to take a stand even against popular opinion. I am confident that Gibo is his own man.

sa LAHAT ng kandidato, sya lang ang nagpapakita nyan…hindi yung mahirap-kunong limpak limpak kung gumastos sa commercials, hindi yung maka-masa na ex-president na nakakakilabot pakinggan, at lalung lalo nang hindi si mister “righteous-kuno courtesy of mommy and daddy” na nakikipag-siraan at nakikipagbangayan din naman sa kapwa kandidato. shus.

Gibo is the only candidate who is confident enough to make his platform and his credits as his selling point in this campaign. he respects his voters enough, to not assume that popularity, starpower, and controversies alone will make a candidate… kahit ang “masa crowd” hindi nya tinatrato ng ganyan. for that he has my utmost respect.
