Supreme Tantrum

Noble. Statesmanlike. A supreme sacrifice.

That's how many described Sen. Mar Roxas' announcement that he's backing out of the presidential race to support Noynoy Aquino.

Honestly, I too saw it that way.

But the pronouncements in the aftermath of the dramatic announcement made me realize it wasn't really so. I now think it was more an act of deep frustration than of selfless dedication to country.

This i guess was how things transpired:

Mar, who earlier thought that his "padyak express" was already up and running, got hurt when his partymates started talking of a convention to choose LP's standard bearer. He got more frustrated when he realized that even Noynoy is having second thoughts on his candidacy, as the public clamor for the latter to reconsider seems to get stronger.

Feeling betrayed, Mar threw a fit and announced his withdrawal - even if Noynoy has yet to make a final decision on his own run.

Mar thought that his partymates were traitors - for failing to consider the efforts and the money that he has already thrown out to fuel his candidacy.

And not just him, even his fiancee sacrificed a lot for it.

In a radio interview, Korina Sanchez poured her heart out saying ...

"..alam mo naman ayoko iwanan ang trabaho ko, lalo na sa radyo"...

"hirap na hirap ang katawan namin sa kaiikot ng Pilipinas at nakita ko pagmamahal ng tao kay Mar."

And the clincher...

"Malaki ang respeto nya sa mag-asawang Aquino, kaya kung itong anak, gusto ay siya, ayaw na nyang labanan yan.".

These statements prove my point.

P. S.

After hearing Korina lambast Conrado de Quiros and Kiko Pangilinan ("Pakalat-kalat lang siya sa UP until I hired him as Executive Producer sa Hoy Gising"), I just felt so relieved that she will no longer be the First Lady she dreamed to be. (God forbid, 2016!)

Hehehe! IMO atty, tactical retreat ang pag withdraw ni Mar. To the masses, naging mabango sya and he looks like a "hero" (Remember, pinoys likes an underdog). The burden is passed on Noynoy, whose only achievement in the political arena is being lucky to have an Aquino as a surname. My prediction, Mar will be VP candidate of LP. He can wait and bide his time. It will come on 2016.

As for Noynoy, I don't believe for a second his "reluctant" pa-epek na drama. He always have his eye on the throne and he saw his chance when his mother died, because of that tremendous outpouring of sympathy from the masses.

Natatawa ako doon sa nagmumurang kamyas na mataray. Nag "sour graping" dahil naonsyame ang kanyang pagiging unang ginang! : D

Ha ha. I can't seem to like Mar. Ahh good riddance.

Kris Aquino, first lady (err, sibling). Happy happy joy joy =)

And Korina..haha we can't help but feel cynical about it. But it's true.. she wants to be first lady! everybody knows that.. except her.. hehe.

For all you know na-realize din ni Mar na tagilid sya sa presidential race na kahit milyones ang ginagastos nya sa political ads, super baba pa rin ng rating nya sa presidential surveys. So naging practical na lang sya at tumakbo na lang for vice.
