Perspectives” Noynoy’s handlers’ failure to portray the “evil” of Villar

The acrimonies for the past weeks brought by the expose in media against Senator and “presidentiable” Manny Villar in the Senate hardly put a dent on the image of the latter on the Pulse Asia’s January 22- 26, 2010 survey. It showed there “presidentiables” Noynoy Aquino and Villar were already statistically tied with 37%, 35% (in the survey’s margin of error of plus and negative two percent), respectively, from the nine questions given to the 1,800 respondents.
The first four questions got a significant percentage –points. They are areas where I am going to delve, and, ehem, explain how it bodes them. They are “1) The candidate is “not corrupt/clean record, 24%”, “2) Care for the poor, 24%,“3) Can do something/is doing something/will do something, 16%”, and “4) Helps, helping others, 11%”.
Since the website of Pulse Asia did not specifically show how many percentage-points both of them got in No.1, I presumed the “Not corrupt/clean record” went to Noynoy because of his unsullied scandal-free image from the time he joined politics as congressman.
The C-5 row, I presumed again, has affected the points of Villar on this question.
But I believed he is neck to neck or ahead on the last three questions against Aquino.
Thanks to his aggressive infomercials at ABS/CBN and GMA-7 TVs where he pays millions of pesos daily to endear himself to voters on his pro-poor advocacies.
These advertisements could shame World War II German Propagandist Joeseph Goebels who once quipped that a lie being told and re-told could become a gospel truth to the listeners eventually.
Villar’s infomercials are complemented by some TV shows where he is seen gratuitously giving tens of thousands if not millions of pesos worth of houses to the poor. An awe-inspiring sight before the eyes of the millions of gullible voters who thought Villar was the short-haired orange-clad messiah who descended from heaven to save them from their sorry-state and homelessness.
On these three questions Noynoy’s would be no match competing with Villar on the credibility game.
Villar’s pro-poor Tondo-born image that jived with the last three questions has gobbled Hacienda Luisita resident Aquino’s image.
Noynoy’s handlers especially his primary “campaign-manager’ ABS/CBN did not succeed to alienate the pro- Villar’s respondents in the last three questions. They were not able to agitate Villar’s sympathizers how grave his sins were when he earned and is still earning the windfall of tens of millions of pesos of scarce government monies as a result of his intercession on the duplicated P6.96 billion C-5 road.
ABS/CBN and Noynoy’s handlers failed to simplify this anomaly (although the former has been airing lately its masses-friendly explanation cum news on its prime time schedule) so the common tao could understand it, and hopefully be angry and leave Manny.
The same anger that ousted former presidents Ferdinand Marcos and Joseph Estrada because of corruption issues.

Although it took me sometime to understand the nuances of C-5 scandal, unlike the saliva-secreting scandal Katrina Halili and Hayden Kho have brought, allow me to present to you this issue that even a school drop-out of Iskol Bukol understand.
For the first time allow me to speak in the vernacular so any Tomasito, Deocoro, and Herodito could understand:
Simulan po natin ito kung saan ang gobierno ang naka pagkumbinse ng Malaysian investor na gumawa ng kalsada sa pamamagitan ng Build Operate Transfer (BOT). Ang BOT po ay hindi iyong ginagamit ng mangingisda pagpupunta sila sa la-ot, ito po ay polisiya ng gobierno kung saan kahit isang kusing na centimo ay wala pong gagastosin ang gobierno natin dahil ito ay pagkakita-an ng namumuhunan sa bayad ng mga mi-ari ng mga sasakyan, na ayaw ma-traffic, na dadaan dito.
Ito ay magmula sa South Luzon Express Way (SLEX) at magtatapos Coastal Road sa Paranaque.
Ang gastos lang ng gobierno dito sa Manila Cavite Toll Expressway Project (MCTEP), ay P2.68 billion dahil ito ay ibibili ng mga lupa at ari-arian na masasagasaan ng kalsadang ginawa. Sa English po ang tawag dito ay expropriation.
Mag mula sa SLEX at patungong Coastal Road si Villar, gamit ang kapangyarihan bilang Senate President, ay na-impluensiyan niya ang gobierno na gumawa ng panibagong kalsada na tinawag na
DPWH C-5 Extension Project (CX-5) na kasama ang Las Pinas- Paranaque Link Project (LPPLP).
Tawagin natin ito na CX-5/ LPPLP. Ito ay isang kalsada na, maniwala man kayo o hindi, ay ginawa para tabihan ang kalsadang ginawa ng Malaysian. Mag asawang kalsada! Puedi ba iyon? Puede po, dahil nangyari na po ito doon sa Cavite at Paranaque areas.
Ang malupit lang po dito ay iyong bagong kalsada ay ginastusan ng gobierno ng P6.96 billion. Napakamahal po kasi nilihis ng konti at dinagdagan ang haba sa pamamagitan ng LPPLP para mada-anan ang mga 50-52 hectarya na lupa-in ni Manny sa Las Pinas na karamihan ay hindi pa na developed. Binayaran si Manny ng P7, 168 per square meter (psm) sa ari-ari-an niya na nasagasaan.
Iyong mga non-Villar properties doon ay binili lang ng gobierno ng P1,880 psm.
Dahil dito kumita si Villar sa expropriation ng P168 million, kasama na doon ang over-priced.
Billion po ang kinita o kikita-in ni Villar dito dahil tuma-as din ang halaga ng lupain niya dahil sa bagong kalsada.
***
Dati po nuong nag-aaral din ako sa Iskol Bukol, akala ko po ay kuentong praning po iyong pagbili ng kotse na kasama na ang kalsada. para maka-iwas trapiko.
Mukhang naniniwala na po ako sa kuentong iyon pagkatapos ko ma-researched ang CX-5/LPPLP.
Kasalukuyan po akong napapraning dahil bigo ang ABS/ CBN at supporters ni Noynoy na iparating sa masang madla ang nakaka- altang presyong isyung walang pangundakang nakawan na ito.
Malisyoso po ang ginawa ni Senator Villar dahil po sa Code of Conduct and Ethical Standard for Public Official and Employees, ang isang opisyal ng gobierno na mi interest sa isang proyekto ng gobierno ay dapat maglahad kung mi conflict of interest siya doon bago siya sumali sa pagawa ng proyecto.
Hindi po ito ginawa ni Villar.
Ang parusa dito ay kasong administratibo.
Dahil din dito si Villar ay pueding maakusahan ng plunder or pandarambong sa Ombudsman kung saan ang kasong ito ay walang piyansa dahil sa pagiging karumaldumal.
Ito pong pagiging karumaldumal ay hindi po naintindihan ng masa. Mas naintindihan pa ng masa ang jingle ng ads ni Villar na “nasubukan niyo na bang maligo sa basura? Nasubukan niyo na bang mag pasko sa kalsada?”
Pag ganito na lang tayo hangang eleksiyon sa Mayo, siguradong maliligo tayong lahat sa basura at magpapasko sa kalsada sa ilalim ng administrasyon ni Villar.
Pagpasensiyahan niyo na lang po ang sulat ko sa Pilipino.
