Are you ready for ‘Noy-Nay’?

But if I were Roxas, I wouldn’t be too concerned about the machinations of Escudero and the hard-core Yellow faction that doesn’t think the senator from Capiz is yellow enough to be truly one of them. At this point, after all, while Noynoy is still hard-pressed to come up with a clear majority even in the most jaundiced of opinion polls, Mar has been steadily increasing his lead over his rivals—Binay included.In fact, it’s actually Aquino who looks like he needs Roxas’ help, instead of the other way around. And when the dust is finally settled, no one would be surprised if Mar is elected vice president and someone else other than Noynoy assumes the presidency.There would be a lot of karmic justice in that scenario, from a Roxas point of view. After all, Mar has had to give up his presidential campaign to give way to Noynoy’s sudden hankering for Malacañang just because his mother had died of cancer.

Shocked but not awed
Rabid supporters of Liberal Party presidential candidate Sen. Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III are quick to dismiss the issue of corruption against him which have been raised because of his involvement in Best Security Agency. The company got the contract for security for the government-owned Philippine National Oil Co. and other companies sequestered by the Presidential Commission on Good Government during the term of his mother, the late President Cory Aquino.
Like Aquino, they think there is nothing wrong with an agency offering security services listing the official residence of the Republic of the Philippines as its address and having no less than the only son of the president as a stockholder/director and vice president and getting government contracts.
They cite the fact that the alleged violation of the Anti-Graft and Corrupt Practices Act happened more than 24 years ago and since no case was filed all these years, it just means that the BSA issue is being used as an election issue.
