Chiz Escudero, who self-destructed just last year, is trying to resurrect himself at the expense of the Aquino Roxas team. For him to endorse Noynoy but leaving out Mar Roxas is a calculated attempt to drive a wedge between the leading tandem. An endorsement this late from an ambitious and disgruntled Chiz Escudero can only be aimed at destroying Mar Roxas far from really endorsing Noynoy.
Sabe nga ng isang sign, “If you have nothing to do, don’t do it here.” An Idle mind is the work of the devil. Walang magawang matino si Chiz kasi kulang na siya sa pansin,
I thought this young man is smart. He indirectly cast aspersion at the pedigrees of the Aquino and Roxas clans whom he called “Illustrado”. Parang minamasa niya ang pagiging “Illustrado” nina Noynoy at Mar. Kasalanan ba kung pinang-anak mayaman sina Noynoy at Roxas? Si Rizal ay mayaman from birth to death but he died fighting for his country kaya naging national hero pa. As far as I can remember, not one Roxas politician from Manuel Roxas, to Gerry Roxas to Mar Roxas has ever been involved in any corruption issue and they are what Chiz describes to be.
Love of country and fighting for what is right is not the monopoly of the poor. An endorsement from a loser is no better than an endorsement from a multiple murder suspect like Ampatuan. Don’t get me wrong, I am neither a registered voter nor an “illustrado” by any means.
