With Villar’s popularity rating plummeting based on the latest SWS p0ll survey, it is expected the NP camp is now panicking on how to deal with the upsurge of the LP’s standard bearers popularity/acceptability rating to probably emerge the winner in the 2010 presidential race election. But with a few days more left before the entire nation decides on who will be the next president the Nacionalista Party (NP) is here again reviving the mental health issue against the Liberal Party (LP) presidential bet Benigno Aquino III. No doubt they will be able to make the undecided voters think twice this time before voting for Noynoy instead of Villar. And who is not alarmed to have a president who is emotionally and mentally disturbed granting the report/accusation is correct? I am neither for Noynoy or Villar, and I am one with the millions of still undecided voters in the country, but it is my right too to see to it that who will be sitting there as the president of the Philippines is not only physically but also mentally healthy.
But what good does this make to the NP presidential bet to revive the “sira ulo” issue? Will the resurrection of this mental/emotional condition of Noynoy’s issue issue” dampen whatever gains the LP achieved through the widening lead of Noynoy against Manny Villar in the poll surveys? To some this is already a desperate move by the Villar’s camp. But if you really take a closer look at it, it is not. Noynoy has not yet directly answered the other party’s accusation against his mental health. This keeps an ordinary Juan dela Cruz thinking, mahirap nang magkaroon pa ng may tupak na presidente (it’s dangerous to have a mentally and emotionally disturbed president).
As observed both camps have been resorting to black propaganda to increase their acceptance rating and to win support from the Filipino voters. As Manny Villar is peppered with issues of corruption issues starting with the C-5 scandal, land-grabbing schemes, and attendance of Villar in a board meeting of PSE of which he acquired billions of profits out of selling his share in a real estate firm; at the detriment of the OFWs investors according to former president Estrada. With this Villar’s mom even appeared before the Media to ask those accusing her son not to refrain from doing futher damage to his (Villar’s) already tarnished refutation. But this is expected in Philippine politics, mudslinging. Politicians don’t talk about their platforms of government but against the evil and dirts (that stinks) against their rivals. And what is going one now is that presidential candidates are ganging on one candidate who has an indirect support from Malacanang, has the money, and a national political machinery to support his candidacy.
Speaking of “sira ulo”, there is a lot of madness in Philippine politics. Some people are getting insane working hard to promote their vested/political interests doing whatever they can “moral and immoral” just to get hold of power. If LP is mudslinging so does the NP. If Villar is accused of corruption and infidelity against the use of public funds, so is Noynoy accused by his political rivals of mental/emotional instabilities. Even other rival camps may use this emotional/mental instability as a potent weapon to destroy and veer out public support and acceptability of Noynoy from the Filipino voters. Right now he is accused of incompetence, and you may also add mental and emotional instability, what kind of president will this Noynoy be if ever he wins? To die hard Noynoy’s supporters this mental/emotional instability as an issue has no value at all that should not be entertained lest it will unnecessarily be venerated in the process.
That’s why even Malacanang is now is asking Noynoy to explain his side on the mental health issues hurled against him. It is important for the public to know the soundness on the physical and mental health of every candidate. So far Noynoy has not answered the mental health issue hurled against him (or has he done it already, please tell me). And the more he keeps silent about it, more and more the public would have reason to wonder.
