Title: Loren Legarda For President in 2010?
Post by: Ligalig-Mike on February 15, 2009, 03:08:33 AM
By the Sunday Post

Senator Loren Legarda, a top presidential timber, representing the Nationalist People’s Alliance, breezed into town yesterday as part of her barnstorming tour throughout the country to feel the people’s pulse in relation to her future political plans.

While in this city, the lady senator touched base with Bohol’s top NPC stalwart City Mayor Dan Neri Lim. It was Lim who arranged a one-hour radio interview over Station DYTR where she guested in the mayor’s weekly program “Ang Mayor Sa Dakbayan”.

Although she was careful not to make a categorical declaration to answer point blank loaded questions about her presidential dream, Legarda just played it coy  betraying her political plans in the process.

One thing that put her on the spot about her presidential aspiration was her virtual admission that she was a consistent survey top-notcher among presidentiables.

Asked if the template of the coming presidential election is all about change as what happened in the United States with the election of Barack Obama, the first Afro-American president, she cited the need for it.

Legarda said the call of the times is for change to take place coupled with hope.

Pressed to elaborate if she can be the epitome of change and hope for the country, the lady senator said it was possible because they are part of the political agenda. 

During the same interview, Legarda talked at length her advocacy about the environment.

Citing her unfaltering crusade for the environment, the senator was recognized of her advocacy in the year 2000 when she was named one of the Global Leaders for Tomorrow by the World Economic Forum.

The topnotch senator was also at home with media colleagues in Bohol. She was a top rated broadcaster before she strayed into politics starting as senator.

Drawing from her vast experience as a journalist for 20 years, she commented on a pending Senate bill providing for the Right of Reply.

The bill authored by Senator Aquilino Pimentel, Jr. defines the parameters of the citizens of the right of reply from any derogatory imputation by media.

While the Senate is sharply divided by the Pimentel bill, the journalist in  Legarda  said while she totally agree with the import of the proposed law, it should not in any way compromised with her position on the basic freedom of speech and information as enshrined in the Bill of Rights.

In her two terms as senator, Legarda was widely known as having authored and sponsored vital pieces of legislation geared towards environmental protection, promotion on entrepreneurship, protection of the rights of women and children, overseas workers and domestic laborers, proving better health services to the public, social justice, national unity and inculcating the value of nationalism and love of country.

If Loren weren't able to manage her family life, how could she manage the whole country. That's a simple logic.

Is it a Filipino mentality? When somebody did something good prior to his/her candidacy, they will all be associated as part of his/her plan for politics. ??? ??? ??? Not all dead were sick before they died. :D :D :D

Politics is everywhere.
Even in love.
Even the way the woman says to the man "I love you, too"
is a powerful political statement.

And how the man takes the woman into his arms
and sweep her to heaven with his deep, long kiss
is a subtle pronouncement how he has allowed her
to be his master and commander.

It's not a Filipino mentality but a common observation.
Do you really need to flaunt the good thing you have done and be on every page, and news item in the hottest news back then?
You cannot blame people when they see it that way.
You wouldn't want to air your bad side when you have plans for running the highest position. Right?

??? ??? ??? Not all dead were sick before they died. :D :D :D

same as not all saints were good before they became holy

Relax.

ayaw mo pailad ni loren legarda. pa gwapa ug pahumot lang ang nahimo ana. pareho lang na sila ni noli de cash-tro. whatever is generated from their mouths are simply lip service.

I agree Sir. i dont think she has the capabilities of being a president of the Phils.  True, she wasn't able to manage her own family problems, how much more the world?

Did great presidents always have good families? just a thought.
Title: Re: Loren Legarda For President in 2010?
Post by: Concerned Citizen on February 26, 2009, 06:13:32 PM

For my point of view, actually it really depends on whom u considered great presidents.  For me, being a president who will rule the country should at least be a good ruler in his/her own home.  How could a president rule and lead the entire country when he/she cant even lead or rule his/her own considering that problems at home are nothing compared to the problems in the country.

how can you compare a very complex situation such as running a country to running a home? It is nice to be idealistic and I have nothing against presidents with good family values, but it is not enough.
It entails management skills, leadership and knowledge.  Take a look on biographies of great leaders, Mandela for example

Did the american people threw Bill Clinton out because of the scandal he brought to his family? I think not, because his skills as a president does not have anything to do with his personal family life.

We tried Cory Aquino.  An ideal family woman.  She was influential though, but it was not enough.  Isnt it?

Running a country is too complicated than running a home. Though both require management skills, leadership and of course the knowledge. However, running a home successfully could be a positive approach to running a country and means more and bigger responsibilities.

I really cant say much on the great American presidents simply because they are totally diffrent from the way they handle their country to the way our presidents handle the Philippines. Have u considered the culture? Americans are way, way sophisticated compared to Filipinos.  Bill Clinton's scandal has nothing to do with his position simply because people there didn't make a big deal on it.  If it happens in the Filipino president, i don't think Filipinos will just remain calm and will not make a big deal out of it.

Cory Aquino at least made a difference for awhile.

Just my view:)

Erap was ousted not because he was a womanizer. The macho culture is an accepted culture in the Philippines and having concubines is a plus factor.

We have a double standard morality in the Philippines.  We have required values for a leader and above all family values.  We may be blinded by our idealism.

If loren was only a man, it would not be such a problem.  What is worse? Being separated  (loren's case) or having different women ( eraps case).  Please note, im not lorens defender here.

I am just sticking to the issue on our blinded idealism of a perfect president, who must have an impecable character, a perfect home.

In logic, this is a fallacy of over generalization, right?

Calle, I ask the same question.  There are lots of great women leaders but Loren is not one of them.  IMO.

Loren has been generous to the local media here always gives out tee-shirts, cell loads, parteis, and this year she even sponsored our BTMAoath taking and awardees dinner and also sponsored our tropheis this year.
The board decided to take of her name off of the awardees plaques.

Against pod ko sa mga kahoy nga guitanom ni Loren Legarda sa tunga sa Kalsada or highway. Unya sabitan dayon sa iyang ngalan nga, This a tree planting project of Senator Loren Legarda. Ka wa gyuy bout kay inig panagko sa mga kahoy ug dalid, maonsa man ang kalsada. nganong anha man gyud kas tunga nga naa man daghang area nga nakalbo na.

Aron lang gyung pakaaron ingon nga concern ka sa environment at same time publicity nimo.  Kini sab iyang bana nga si Gov. Leviste, land grabber pod ni sa Batangas. Akong barkada nga Pulis na assign ug escort ni Loren pero adto pa dutihon sa Ilang Hacienda sa Batangas. Sus karon suguon man kono sila pairog sa mohon sa yuta adto sa kasikbit nga yuta. Sakpan man silas tagiya sa kasikbit nga yuta di guirapido silag armalite. Arang panagan nila wa na mobalik sa Duty.

Beside lip service nga ilang nahimo sa mga Lopezes. Pila nila nga mga naa na sa puesto They are also protecting the right of this few Bigwig Business people. Mao na silang guipuesto na sila libre na man ang publicity sa ABS-CBN.

I've always been doubtful of Loren's intentions.  I liked her when she was still a journalist and was happy when she joined the politics but I realized she is one trapo too.  If I think of Loren, I will always think of her crying at the impeachment hearing for Erap and then much later she joined camp with Erap with all the drama. Then came the Ces Drilon kidnapping case.  She was all over the news.  Then she said that really ticked me, something like, pinanggalitan ko nga yong mga kidnappers...  Mao ba? tsk tsk tsk
