I was surprised when I passed by J.C. Aquino Avenue corner Doongan Road tonight. There was already a giant signage of “Noynoy For President Headquarters” immediately after the Petron Station. Hmm, my friend Mix’s ancestral home is adjacent to it, btw.
So, yeah, his followers are formally organized here — and I’m guessing that’s the Liberal Party on the move (who else?). In fact, the Liberal Party in the city has long been supporting Tita Cory when she was still very sick. Truth to tell, it was the Liberal Party who organized masses for Tita Cory’s healing then. Now that he’s certainly running for the highest office next year, the Liberal Party has started the fight in this side of town.
I recall that when Noynoy announced on national TV that he was running for presidency, everybody I met in school, in court, even our clients in the office, were so happy he made the decision. Include to the list the yayas of my nephews and nieces who were so glad too. Manang Inday, the janitor of the school, happily relayed the news to me when we met in the hallway later that evening (as if I did not know).
Will I vote for him? Well, if he would have run for the Vice Presidency, I would not hesitate to say I would. For President? I’m open to be convinced. This early, I know that I will not be voting for Jajajajamby, Erap, Teodoro, Escudero (is he running?). I’m having a hard time whether to give my precious vote to Villar or Noynoy.
I have nothing else to say because the news and the internet have said it all. This post is just to satisfy my brother’s prodding to put Noynoy in my blog. He’s a supporter.
