Isa lang ang napansin ko sa debateng ito. Si Senador Bong Bong Marcos.

Bakit kaya siya paboritong banatan ng mga kasama niyang tumatakbo sa pagka-Bise Presidente? Eh hindi naman siya si former President FERDINAND E. Marcos. Just curious. Nangunguna na kaya siya sa Vice Presidential Survey? Sabi nga ng kawikaang tagalog, “Ang puno binabato dahil maraming bunga.”

Isa lang ang napansin kong bitter. Si Senador Alan Peter Cayetano. Most of his speech revolves around personal attacks against Senator Bong Bong Marcos. Wala siyang masyadong binanggit na plano kung papano niya pabubutihin ang kabuhayan ng mga Filipino. Halos lahat ng ginawa niya sa debate ay “mud slinging” towards the personality of Senator Bong Bong Marcos.

One thing that’s good though is that Senator Bong Bong Marcos didn’t stoop down to Senator Cayetano’s level of thinking. Senator Cayetano proved to be a traditional politician and I won’t vote for a trapo. Senator Bong Bong Marcos kept his cool amidst a storm of criticisms and came out a winner. Makikita mo may pinagaralan talaga at hindi pumapatol sa mga basagulero.

 Parang batang inagawan ng candy si Senador Alan Peter Cayetano lahat nalang ng ginawa niya at sinabi niya puro paninisi sa past mistakes ng mga Marcos he was sounding more like Abnoy Aquino and he isn’t even a member of the Yellow Army.

Leni Robredo is nice, sweet and cool which in the current state of the nation is not the kind of leader that we need right now. I know her husband is a good example of public service and I’ve heard a lot of good things that she did in Bicol but we need a leader that can impose discipline on his fellow politicians. A Vice President who can rule the country with an iron fist with the President.

Senator Chiz Escudero is annoying at best. I don’t want to have a Vice-President who speaks like a race horse announcer. And I don’t know what he was saying most of the time. I also thought he was reading a script with a lot of comas.

* * *

Senator Gringo Honasan is a gentleman. Wala akong makitang bahid politika sa kanyang mga sagot. He was straight to the point, hindi siya mahilig magbato ng basura sa kanyang mga katunggali. Ang ginawa ni Senador Honasan ay ipakilala ang kanyang plataporma para sa mga kababayan natin and that’s nice.

* * *

Isa sa mga highlights ng debate ay yung barahin ni Senador Antonio Trillanes si Senador Alan Peter Cayetano tungkol sa sinasabi niyang “6 months wala ng krimen sa Luzon, Visayas at Mindanao!” ang sagot ni Senador Trillanes “Wag tayong mag bolahan dito! Si Mayor Duterte matagal naging Mayor sa Davao City pero hanggang ngayon may krimen pa rin kaya paano niyo aalisin ang kriminalidad sa loob lang ng anim na buwan! number four ang Davao City na may highest crime rate sa Pilipinas!” I laughed so hard because I know what Senator Trillanes said was true.

* * *

Here is Senator Marcos adding insult to injury by saying this to Senator Alan Peter Cayetano, “Kasalanan ko ba kung mas gusto ako ng mga supporter ni Duterte kaysa sa iyo?!” I know it’s true because there are Duterte supporters who were rooting for a Duterte-Marcos Presidency.

* * *

Mali kasi ang diskarte ni Senador Alan Peter Cayetano eh. I’m looking for a candidate na may magandang plataporma para sa bansa kaso nadismaya ako sa kanya kasi puro personal attacks kay Senator Marcos ang ginawa niya. He was desperate because he was lagging in Vice-Presidential surveys so paraan niya siguro yun para wag siya maunahan ng iba. Typical crab mentality evident in his being.

* * *

I was pretty entertained by the Vice Presidential debates. It was a lot of fun looking at this candidates and choosing who’s deserving of my vote.
