rappler I like.  There is less BS compared to the alternative and the BS that is there unavoidably is easier to sift.

Rappler is a rag

That being the case, ABS-CBN and its cabal of "journalists"  (Excluding ANC) would be a wet pulp.  Ted Failon is the intellectual male analog of Korina Sanchez.

Oh, I forgot to mention that I've stopped watching ABS-CBN or GMA7 for news. Mom likes to listen to Ted Failon in the morning so I have to suffer his government bashing every morning. Probably because Korina married someone else? LOL

But still, what I don't like about Rappler is that it's too much like a blog. We get opinion posts that aren't well thought out or even well-researched. We also get sensationalist posts as well. I know it drives revenue but I would have expected something more from a group that offers itself up as professional.

I didn't bother to read why they voted in favor. I'm assuming it's because they fail at basic arithmetic?

If Grace Poe wins she will beat Hillary Clinton and would be the first American Lady President.

according to friends who worked closely with government agencies very recently, roxas really wants to be president :P :P :P except that he's acting like a rich spoiled brat when you're working with him :)  and he's really incompetent  >:D >:D

duterte - wants to release revilla, arroyo and estrada from prison. want marcos to be buried in libingan ng mga bayani. AFP modernization is useless. offers railroad diplomacy for china. pro-commies and mnlf. only kills small  time criminals.

poe - puppet of danding. american citizens.

roxas - maybe incompetent but create more jobs and his contribution to BPO  now reaching 1 million jobs and surpassing the OFWs remittance.

 i will go for MAR-LENI, the national economy,  AFP modernization and US-RP Military Alliance is far more important to me than other issues like traffic, LTO Plate, drugs, MRT and other issues that a capable MAYOR could handle.  Aquino admin is one one the best performing administration i have know and experience because i was a beneficiary of that economic miracle that is happening to the Philippines  right now.  A duterte leadership will turn our nation  into a Venezuela where the leftist ruin the economic boom.

Uhh actually I haven't picked out one yet. But I have some thoughts on the candidates:

Binay- definitely not.

Roxas- not sure if competent or incompetent. From what I can tell, he's a technocrat, good for running a business, but government is not a business. He lack empathy and seems trying too hard to be what he's not. I think he should just play on what he does best.

Duterte- I admit I wanted him at first (federalism is a good idea), but he took so looooong to decide, even then after turning it down twice. Now I detest him (not as much as Binay). And he is so shallow and shortsighted. Ok so after solving crime, then what? Nothing. And then he keeps saying moderinizing the AFP is a waste, preferring to simply talk one on one with China (on his jetski no less!). Also his antics while entertaining is only good for local elections. Is he going to curse the Chinese till they leave?

Poe- IMO too early and her "American" family (will renounce if/when she wins) is cause for concern. Then there the people behind her (Danding).

Santiago- her choice of VP is like a slap in the face and her health is questionable. Not even sure if she will make it to the ballotbox.

Binay crashed, burned and practically rolled himself into a buckyball last night.   He has totally lost the elections.  But who the hell was coaching him?  Notes in a nationally televised debate?  Insisting on having these documents as props he intended to read out?  Kicking at the relatively dead horse of Poe's citizenship while insisting on reading from notes.  Stroking Duterte's shaft, doing very little else damage to Mar's lack of evident leadership and Poe's inexperience.

Duterte, other than his remarkably salient stance on climate adaptation, did not really really add to anything but managed to troll Mar Roxas with relative success.  He owned the outtakes but substantially very thin every where else in terms of policy and addressing criticisms.  He also asked the most critical question for any candidate in terms of national security and foreign relations, though displayed very little expertise about it.

Poe, was clear in her delivery of her canned lines, but failed to answer the two most critical questions, namely the Coco Levy Fund, and the fact that she needed to wake up first during an international crisis.  The plan to cash in commitment from allies and mutual defense treaties for a swift military response should have been a ready contingency.  She wanted to hold meetings first and forgot to put a pot of coffee out?

Mar got the brunt of the criticisms, stayed on message, answered points adequately, but was terribly redundant and lacked the humorous wit to counter the snide remarks from the irreverent Duterte.  He shines as a competent administrator but not quite leadership material you'd die for.  He has the most to lose in this election.

Am inclined towards Mar, but I have a profound dislike for Korina Sanchez and his non-support of divorce.

What made you go for him? I doubt that he has what it takes to continue Daang Matuwid. His incompetence speaks volumes.

We're really hard pressed for viable candidates such that I am trying to decide whose low points I can live with.
