Will Bongbong Marcos replace Noynoy Aquino?

Aquino, Marcos. These are the two surnames in which Philippine politics is (perhaps blindly) divided into.  A failure of the Marcos family puts the Aquino supporters on a feast, and vice versa. With the presidential election looming, the term of President BS Aquino III is drawing to a close. His endorsement power was affected by the massacre of 44 of the country’s top policemen in Mamasapano, Maguindanao. BS Aquino’s ratings have plunged to an all-time low, and that will only continue to get lower, especially with how the report of the Senate and the PNP Board of Inquiry both pointed to Aquino as among those responsible for the massacre by allowing suspended PNP Chief Alan Purisima to call shots in the operation.

bongbong_marcosThe elections are looming, and whoever receives BS Aquino’s endorsement is doomed to fail in the coming election. That is, unless BS Aquino uses his powers to rig the elections in favor of his anointed successor, who at the moment appears to be Interior Secretary Mar Roxas. Nevertheless, whoever is going to be endorsed by BS Aquino is also going to take the heat from his critics.

Still, the administration has done its best to make sure its 2016 bet wins. This is evident with how administration ally Senator Antonio Trillanes IV has furiously attacked Vice President Jejomar Binay, the only confirmed presidential candidate so far. Trillanes is from the Nacionalista Party, but has shown himself to be more loyal to BS Aquino than any other ruling Liberal Party member not named Franklin Drilon and Sonny Belmonte.

Suppose Aquino’s popularity keeps spiraling downward, the Filipino mindset would lead the people to look at another alternative. And, what is a more suitable alternative to the Aquino name than its antithesis, Marcos. Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr., the son of the late President Ferdinand E. Marcos, has expressed little interest in the presidency, although he has not ruled out the possibility.

What makes Bongbong as the replacement for BS Aquino III? Some people have been fed up about how BS Aquino has always mentioned his parents in his speeches, and how bitter he is with how his father was murdered in 1983. Bongbong, on the other hand, barely ever mentions his father and mother, and does not express bitterness with how their family has been persecuted ever since their ouster in 1986.

I am proud of what my father has achieved. But I will not get anywhere by just basking in his glory.

-Ferdinand R. Marcos, Jr. during the 2010 campaign

In his 2010 Senatorial campaign, Bongbong used what he achieved as Congressman and Governor of Ilocos Norte. He rarely mentions his parents and their achievements, unless he is asked about them. Besides the Marcos surname, Bongbong has emerged as the exact opposite to Noynoy Aquino.

So, if the people are really fed up with how BS Aquino has run the country, then it is not far-fetched that the masses will once again turn to a Marcos in hopes of escaping the yellow spell. The same way in how some of the people turned to an Aquino after expressing their dissatisfaction over the 1965-1986 Marcos rule.

Seriously? Of course he won’t mention his parents. One was a dictator, the other a loud, gaudy socialite with no tact or class.

This generation seems to have forgotten the atrocities Bong Bong and his family committed…

If the Philippines elects another dictator, we deserve all the crap we’re going to get. Nobody left to blame… #NOTOMARCOS #NOTODICTATORS #BONGBONGSTAYINILOCOS #NEVERAGAIN

mag isip isip ka muna sa mga sinasabi mo! nabulag ka din ng dilaw na ilaw na yan! The actual dialogue on TV between Marcos and then AFP Chief of Staff General Fabian Ver went as follows: Fabian Ver: The Ambush there is aiming to mount there in the top. Very quickly, you must immediately leave to conquer them, immediately, Mr. President. Ferdinand Marcos: Just wait, come here. Ver: Please, Your Honor, so we can immediately strike them. We have to immobilize the helicopters that they’ve got. We have two fighter planes flying now to strike at any time, sir.… Read more »

The dialogue sounds scripted. Rather fishy they would televise these sort of conversations.

That conversation between Gen Ver and Pres Marcos was not scripted..it was shown live telecast because on that time Pres Marcos was addressing the nation and suddenly Gen Ven came with a message and ask permission to attack… I’ve witnessed that televised conversation… in that alone I felt and saw the humanitarian nature of the late president coz he went to say as well that he don’t want to hurt any civilians. I was 21 yrs old at that time.

I suppose you are part of the yellow spell, u sounds similar to Pnoy and family who are so used in blaming Marcos Sr. for those alleged misdeeds and yet could not prove even a single case. on the contrary, Bongbong really comes out as the real alternative to the failure of the so-called tuwid na daan campaign, being a true statesman himself, he knows where to bring his countrymen for This Nation Shall Be Great Again.

Actually cory did her role, restore a new order of government based on strenthening democracy. She survived numerous coup attempts in doing so. After that order came to fore, all the other presidents that followed esp pnoy was a reactive, near sighted, friends influenced, kris influenced, judgmental that hates to be judge, finger pointing, no policy presidents.

noytards… be educated and learn how to find some information on what are the atrocities BongBong has committed. Then correct your statement of argument, BECAUSE THE REAL REASON YOU BLAME THE MARCOS CHILDREN IS THAT YOU AREN’T EVEN TRYING TO FIND SOME CLARIFICATIONS ON WHAT “REALLY””REALLY” HAPPENED BACK IN MARCOS SR.’S DAY. YOU MAY HAVE JUST STUCK YOURSELF ON THIS COUNTRY’S TWEAKED HISTORY FROM BOOKS MADE BY THE YELLOW FRAUD.

Bongbong and Noynoy both have much less strength than their energetic fathers.

Fresh blood is needed in Filipino leadership, fresh strong blood coming from below to reinvigorate the somewhat faded elite.

The Filipino elite is going the way of European royalty in the late 19th century, genetic degeneration by way of inbreeding.

I’m not really sure about Bongbong. But there’s a saying “Don’t judge the son for the crimes of his father.”

If he’s smart enough he won’t repeat the mistakes of Macoy Sr.

Laura Huab

Amen to that!! It’s not fair to judge a person because of what his/her parents did, good or bad!

Rightist
Guest

I do not really see what Bongbong Marcos has accomplished but he seems to be a rational politician. That said, I hope he does not win. He still believes his father was good for our country. He needs to repudiate the acts of his father before I can even think of voting for a 2nd generation Marcos. There is no justification for a 20 year rule where at the end, the economy was in shambles, the various insurgencies were strong, and political opponents were jailed.

I am against all kinds of Family Political Dynasties, with shades of Feudal Oligarchies. Political candidates are not “Brand Names”, that you can just elect. That, the “Brand Name” is good, and will work.

We voted for the Aquino “Brand name” …Look at the result. An incompetent and a mentally retarded President.

There are better candidates there, than the: Aquinos, Marcoses, Binays, Estradas, Revillas, etc…

are you referring to the real Ferdinand Marcos who was forced to leave malacanang in 1966 because of a threat to his life? then you are dead wrong because that Ferdinand Marcos did not steal a single penny from you and if you continue to parrot the lies about the Marcoses that were only fabricated by the usa and the crook aquinos, do us a favor, go fuck yourself and stay in hell. it will regale us.

Absolutely incredible how delusional some Filipinos are. I’ve actually met people who think Marcos was the best thing that happened to the country. I can only assume they’re taught a messed-up version of history in school and aren’t smart enough to do their own research. FWIW I think BongBong Marcos may actually be trying to fix what his father did. That’s already happened several times in recent history, with excellent results. However, since an honest Filipino politician (or, hell, an honest Filipino) is as rare as hen’s teeth, the voters should tread carefully. As for darryl’s question: the country was… Read more »

Pinoys measure the best or better President by comparing all the corrupt and incompetent leaders to one another? And older and younger generation really think that the best times of Philippines is Martial Law era? Wala pang best o better President na nanunungkulan at manunungkulan sa Pilipinas. At wala pang best times sa Pilipinas para mamuhay ng may buong pagmamalaki ang mga Pilipino. Hanggang ganyan ang pamamaraan ng pagtingin sa magaling at ganyan kababa ang standard ng mga Pilipino sa kanilang mamumuno, mananatiling walang best times o better leader.

Truth is Pinoys are just making the most of what’s there, what their government can offer. Kaya nga kilala sila sa pagiging resilient e.
