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

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.

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…

The most effective way to destroy people is to deny and obliterate their own understanding of their history.

I am 29 years old. And all I can say is that Marcos is the best President in the Republic of the Philippines. For those people who are talking shit to the late FEM you’re “bobo” just like your Noytards president. You are living in the dreamworld of your Noytards president. I don’t know what those people think in defending Pnoy. I really don’t understand what they see to that crazy president. Well, my grandparents and parents live in the era of the great President Ferdinand Emmanuel Marcos. And the only thing that they can say is that… Living in… Read more »
