this is the kris aquino in tears video at The Buzz which happened over the weekend. it can break your heart or make you laugh. you can believe it or not.
the question is this – is kris aquino a liability or an asset to the noynoy aquino election campaign?
this is next at The 2010 Presidentiables Blog.
vote in the poll:
malacanang: “don’t get carried away by candidates crying siblings”. that is an obvious reference to kris aquino’s tears of drama over the weekend at The Buzz.
did malacanang have to comment on it? and did they have to say what they did? we do not understand why this kind of statement needs to be said by malacanang when nobody who stays in malacanang is running for president. the one running for president is gilbert teodoro, a party mate of the one sitting in malacanang, gloria macapagal arroyo but that is not one and the same.
however, with malacanang feeling the urge to make a comment like this, it is obvious it thinks it is one and the same.
malacanang is the office of the president, it serves all filipinos and because of that it should concern itself on matters that affect all filipinos and national good governance. making a comment on the sister of a particular presidentiable declares malacanang is not national in scope but personal.
it should not concern itself on whether the voters will choose a presidentiable based on the tears of a sibling. not all the siblings of all presidentiables have done it, only the sibling of noynoy aquino. calling this out and making this unkind and callous statement obviously means they are asking the voters not to vote for aquino.
this is one more instance where the presidency has used the resources, including personnel of government agencies like they exist for their personal use, not having to do with anything that is on governance or of national import. malacanang has used the DOJ as its personal attorney, the DoH as its personal physician to promote traditional contraceptive methods, and taxpayers money to treat themselves in posh restaurants in new york.
aside from this usual lapse of bad governance, malacanang with this comment may actually hurt gilbert teodoro as attacking kris in this manner will definitely anger and hurt the millions of fans of kris aquino.
kris is one of the most popular showbiz hosts in the country not only for her skills and charisma on tv but also for being human. we seem to have windows open to witness the personal life of kris aquino, witnessing the most human of failings of this showbiz superstar. that is the appeal and a large part the basis for kris’ popularity. kris is a showbiz superstar but she is human prone to the same hurts ordinary mortals experience.
instead of moving voters away from noynoy aquino, this statement of malacanang will only add to the anger and disgust people have on malacanang’s superstar occupant and her candidate, gilbert teodoro.
kris aquino is in tears on this one. she is in her most plain hairstyle, simple clothes, simple make up and we see the tears and the pain that kris is going through as kris aquino the popular tv host, daughter of ninoy and cory aquino and now the sister of noynoy aquino, the presidentiable.
is it election time or is it awards night for acting?
MANILA, Philippines – Kris Aquino, the youngest sister of presidential aspirant Sen. Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III, on Sunday turned emotional as she defended herself from constant criticisms thrown at her ever since the election fever began.
Apparently fed up from always being the target of harsh comments, Kris disclosed that she even contemplated of leaving entertainment talk show “The Buzz.”
The host, whose personal life has always been a subject of scrutiny and is said to be a liability to Noynoy’s candidacy, said she consulted her 3 female siblings – Ballsy Aquino-Cruz, Viel Aquino-Dee, Pinky Aquino-Abellada – about her plan since it should be a “family decision.”
She said she excluded Noynoy because her brother is not used to the world of show business.
“Sinabi ko sa mga kapatid ko, tao lang ako talaga. And I said this election parang lahat ng kagalit ni ‘Noy kung may kailangang pintasan, ako parati. Tapos sinabi ko kay Ate parang mababaliw na ako kasi mababasa mo na parang ikaw na ang pinakawalanghiyang tao sa mundo,” she said.
“Ginagalang ko ang pagka-presidente dahil alam ko kung ano ang sinakripisyo ng tatay ko at nanay ko para magkaroon tayo ng demokrasya,” said the youngest daughter of former president Corazon Aquino and Benigno “Ninoy” Aquino Jr.
