noynoy aquino – the teflon presidentiable, nothing sticks!

the 2010 election is probably one of the nastiest philippine presidential election in its history. not that philippine elections are known for intelligent debates on national issues, but noynoy aquino in particular have received the worst kinds of negative attacks.

there is a very long laundry list of negative and even personal attacks on noynoy aquino that started almost on the day after he announced his candidacy. almost all the attacks were personal – lack of achievements,  lack of experience, being a bachelor, being autistic,  his cigarette smoking, his hair or lack of it, his use of his parents credentials and  the most recent, the double fake psyche reports.

but none of it, not a single negative attack  got to stick to aquino. that makes aquino a teflon presidentiable.

aquino’s standing in the polls since the very start has not changed  – he has been the front runner. while his current rating may not be as high as what it was at the start, he continue to dominate the other presidentiables.  shrinkage from his going in rating is normal and expected. what is unusual and admirable is that he has maintained his front runner status from day one till now even though black propaganda against aquino was always there in various and new forms.

how was aquino able to survive such atttacks?

    to the author of the subject “teflon”
    it is very ungrateful esp for you to use what the parents of noynoy did to restore
    democracy in your own country as a black propaganda against noynoy. is it wrong to
    be a son of these two great parents who gave their lives to give YOU a democratic
    country. YOU ARE A CHILD OF YOUR PARENTS, WHAT DID YOUR PARENTS CONTRIBUTE TO THIS
    COUNTRY WHICH YOU ARE NOW FREELY LIVING – DRINKING COFFEE HIDING THEIR FACES BEHIND

    ang ipinaglalaban dito ay karangalan at prinsipyo HINDI i wish ko lang…meron akong tinanong na isang tindera sa palengke, kung sino ang iboboto niya sa pagka-pangulo. ang sagot niya ay si noy. tinanong ko siya kung ano ang batayan niya sa pagpili, ang sagot niya ay, “GUSTO KO LANG” at sabi ko sa kanya, eh bakit nga siya ang pinili mo? ang sagot ay, “WALA LANG, GUSTO KO LANG”…is this the kind of attitude we have to show the world in choosing our leader in our country?
    kahit matalo ang iboboto ko, wala akong dapat pagsisihan dahil ginawa ko lang ang tama, at naayon sa aking konsensiya. alam mo bang katulad din ng sigarilyo, halos lahat ng mga pilipino ay adik sa mga tv dramas(kaya we are emotionally infected)dahil dito apektado tayo kahit sa pagpili natin ng ating pangulo.
    at isa pa, huwag natin gayahin ang mga surveys sa amerika na credible. sa kanila, dalawang partido lang ang pagpipilian at , katakut-takot na proseso at botohan ang pinagdadaanan mo. mabusisi ang kanilang nominasyon bago ka pa maging standard bearer ng isang partido.
    ikumpara mo dito sa pinas, katakut-takot na iyakan lang at hiyawan na ibibigay sa iyo, pwede ka ng maging presidente ng bansa. DID WE REALLY USE OUR MIND, INTELLECT AND WILL TO CHOOSE OUR PRESIDENT OR WE ARE JUST SWAYED BY OUR ON AND OFF EMOTIONS?
    kaya nga puro na tayo mga artistahin, sabagay artistahin na nga si ate k…

      kler, boto ako sa ‘yo.bakit? “wala lang, gusto ko lang” (joke lang).totoo.talagang yong eleksyon ng mga pinoy is based on emotions and even extreme emotions. not only emotions but extreme CORRUPTIONS (may “s” ba).Alam mo bakit emotional at naging corrupt tayo ? dahil ina-api tayo ng mga espanol,hapon ,amerikano at ngayon ina-api na tayo sa kapwa nating pinoy….

      buti nga hindi ako adik sa tv. boring at walang kwenta yong palabas.gaya-gaya at yong ibang estasyon, puro kabakla-an yong palabas.

      kler, tama ka diyan… I think Erap is a good leader but he surrounds himself with charlatans and rasputins… I don’t mind his gambling and drinking as long as he is sober the morning after and fit for work. I hope I’m wrong but Manny Villar’s going by the moral standards line to me is a put on, a convenience to be palatable to the conscience block. I will cast my vote for JC de los Reyes who to me is the most credible among the presidentiables. This guy is a Don Quixote with his impossible dream… In the end, he will not win but I have voted with my conscience. If Noynoy wins, perhaps he will push the RH bill… and we will see a lot of protests and pressures. If Manny wins, I wonder how he intends to recover his campaign expenses. If for some stroke of luck, Erap wins, let’s hope he learns his lesson. Whatever, we deserve what we get… Prof

    Noynoy, as far as scrutiny goes, is only full of hot air and shows no capability to govern, let alone legislate.

    Hell even Kris boasts of his re-election, but nothing came out of it.

    Natamaan yata sa mga jabs ni Pacquiao.
