Fr. Ed, The Unlikely takes the high ground – will withdraw his candidacy to support noynoy for president if noynoy runs

we applaud Fr. Ed, The Unlikely for taking the high ground and announcing he will withdraw his candidacy for president to support noynoy if he runs for president.

fr. ed the unlikelywe think it is a very principled stand and we admire him even more for it. this kind of announcement has its costs but he does not seem to mind. announcing

 he might withdraw will give pause to his own supporters, their energy and interest will pipe down and those still undecided will remove panlilio from their radar. in other words, he can stand to lose supporters. but it appears that side of it  fr. ed, the unlikely does not mind.

he is taking a principled stand, behind the idea of the opposition unified under one candidate and supporting a candidate that he probably sees as someone who believes in the same principles he does. noynoy’s greatest strenght is his name and his being, having cory and ninoy as parents. that is the twin legacy that noynoy will uphold.

while the announcement might cost fr. ed, the unlikely some supporters and some momentum, it will also gain him supporters and admirers for taking such a principled stand.

we applaud fr. ed, the unlikely.

Panlilio to back Noynoy for president

MANILA, Philippines — Pampanga Gov. Eddie Panlilio Thursday raised the possibility he would drop his presidential plan and instead rally behind Sen. Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III should he run for president.

“I’m thinking of not running. That’s a big probability. I want to support Noynoy because with so many [candidates for president] from the reform movements, it would do our country more good if there is just one reform candidate. This would be Noynoy,” Panlilio told the Inquirer.

    Hey Among Ed, sabi mo noon ibinulong sayo ng Diyos na dapat ikaw ang magiging Presidente para ma iligtas mo ang Pilipinas sa lalong pagkakabaon. Kaya nga kakandidato ko di ba?

    Ngayon susuportahan mo na lang si Noynoy. Nagbago ba ang pag-isip ng Diyos na bumulong sa yo? Tanungin mo siguro si Noynoy kung binulungan din siya ng Diyos, Kasi si Bro Eddie, binulungan na siya ng Diyos pagkatapos mo.Pati din yata si Mike Velarde, at pati na rin si Father Tropa.

    I salute Manond Ed for his thoughts on Noynoy’s future plans.. Noynoy has the capacity to unite the fragmented opposition.. among the presidentiables in 2010, Noynoy is the complete opposite of GMA, and even Noli de Castro.. we need a new leader to change this country after Arroyo’s presidency..
