Roxas family still solid w/ Aquino sisters

I APPLAUD the Araneta/Roxas family for keeping on defending the Aquino sisters, who have been their friends since they were kids. I also understand completely why they have to maintain that the relationship w/ those girls is as solid as ever. Good for them then.

Personally, I really don’t see any point in denying what the LP and Roxas’ own political officers and supporters in the field had been reporting since February. Besides, that TV ad endorsing Binay that would’ve been shot by one sister, and those Noy-bi posters in one of the girls’ cars were not the figments of anyone’s imagination. There was treachery and you can bet my sweet ass on it.

“Cunning and treachery are the offspring of incapacity.” (François de la Rochefoucauld, French author, 1613-1680)

Noli supports Mar’s vice presidential bid

MANILA, Philippines – Vice President Noli de Castro will not endorse a presidential candidate but is supporting the Liberal Party’s Manuel “Mar” Roxas.

De Castro said it was his decision not to publicly support a presidential candidate because he does not want to be tainted with “political color” when he returns to broadcasting at the end of his term.

The Vice President kept mum when asked if he is supporting Nacionalista Party standard-bearer Manuel Villar Jr. Both of them belong to the Senate’s Wednesday Club.

Mar the technocrat has funny side, too

During the forum, he started to hum along with a Carlos Santana song playing in a videoke joint beside The STAR office.

The music grew louder as he was explaining a serious issue, and when he could no longer be heard, he decided to join in and sing along.

Roxas describes himself as “kenkoy” (playful) and down-to-earth, but admits he can be rigid and detailed.

Noynoy admits talking to a psychologist, but only about other politicians

MANILA, Philippines – Liberal Party (LP) presidential candidate Sen. Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III admitted yesterday he had indeed talked with a psychologist – but about other politicians, not himself.

He recalled that in The STAR’s series of interviews with presidential candidates, he was asked if he had consulted a psychiatrist.

His reply that he spoke with a psychologist friend about the personalities of some politicians drew laughter from The STAR editors, columnists, and reporters, he said.
