Politician’s Corner

Now it’s time to hear the other side. Here are some quotes from interviews/speeches of politicians and other personalities regarding the topics posted. Let’s see what they have to say… and what you have to say about it!

Cesar Montano

“Why not?” – when asked why he is running for senator instead for a local position (Diaryo Pilipino)

“I’m asking for a crash course on politics. I know I have a lot of catching up to do,” – (Inquirer.net)

Richard Gomez

“Ang sinasabi ko lagi, kailan ako tatakbo—kung matanda na ako? I want to run now while I’m young, while I’m strong, while I’m able. I know I can make a difference and I know I can do something good for this country. I know that there is something that I could really do for this country.” – when asked how he handles critics (Philippine Entertainment Portal)

Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III

“EDSA is about the people fighting against poverty and ensuring that democracy is never again threatened.” – what does EDSA stand for (Daily Tribune)

Bayani Fernando

“Much as it pains me to do this, I cannot cry with the poor because if my tears blind me, who then will guide them?” – his reason for his strict discipline

Lolit Solis

“Ano ba ang unang binabasa ng masa sa mga tabloid. ‘Di ba ang entertainment stories at columns? Dati ‘di pinapansin ang mga entertainment writers, pero nung nanalo si Erap, suddenly ang daming pulitikong nagpapatulong” – why are politicians getting help from famous personalities

    I agree with what Bayani Fernando said. I am even in favor of his strict discipline coz look at what he has accomplished for Marikina! I guess some people merely associate him with what he has done with MMDA (with the pink fences and the u-turns) hence he is seen as like a burdensome in our government. But isn’t that what we need? We need order in our society. Just my 2 cents.

    NO! I disagree with Bayani Fernando’s principle. Why hurt the hurt people? He is just adding misery to the poor. It’s like pushing the jaded people to hell. What the poor people need is awareness to the rules and its penalties if they disobey the so called “strict rules” of him. Also, it will help a lot if the rules will be implemented the way it should be. Get rid of the “BUHAYAS”
