'Yellows’ demise'

'Yellows’ demise'




The 2019 mid term elections has long been touted as a referendum as regards President Rodrigo Roa Duterte’s popularity.
From his 2016 presidential win, it has been marked if the “Duterte magic” can still work in the mid term elections.
Politics has always been a numbers game, a Congress that is dominated by Duterte aligned politicians is most definitely an advantage – State policies will be properly and expeditiously coordinated between the Legislative and Executive departments – the most ideal set up for a country that is hoping to sustains its economic gains while our infrastructure projects all over the country are on its way to completion.

Now, if surveys are to be believed, most administration backed senatorial candidates are in a brink of history for being the first group to blank the opposition in the 12 seat senate, if not the most is 10 administration backed candidates and 2 opposition bets.
Of the two, former Interior secretary Mar Roxas is still hoping to catch the last slot which is number 12, imagine just the last number from someone who vied for the presidency last 2016.
The Daily Tribune published an article (04/17/2019) titled “Yellow’ demise” wherein it exhaustively expoused the uselessness of being associated with Benigno Aquino’s Yellow cult, and how the political career of Mar Roxas is forever ruined being associated with the yellow cult.

The gambit apparently came too late for Roxas since the voters will merely see through his desperation and only strengthen Rody’s assessment that he is a political butterfly with the way he easily shifted alliance from former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo where he was the Trade Secretary to Noynoy in whose term he assumed several posts at his convenience
It is futile for Roxas to classify himself as a candidate independent from the yellows since he had long been a kingpin of the LP and the main beneficiary of the yellow regime of Noynoy.
Noynoy even anointed him as a possible successor as payback to his supposed giving way as the LP standard bearer back in 2010.

For purposes of public information, convenience, clarity and truthfulness we are quoting in full the editorial commentary of the Daily Tribune.



Yellows’ demise

It is tragic to watch how the yellow mob is self-destructing and has sunk to being similar to a pack of rabid canines tearing at each other that will hasten their extinction.
From the ordeal of Jim Paredes and his “mini” show to lately Mar Roxas and former President Noynoy Aquino’s spat, the yellow predicament indicates the Liberal Party (LP) and its supporters are descending to perdition.
Roxas’ campaign manager, Caloocan 2nd District Rep. Edgar Erice, blew the lid open by blaming the defeat of Roxas in the 2016 presidential race to Noynoy, while saying that Roxas is discarding yellow for blue as a campaign color.
The color shift is hard to swallow since the yellow ribbon had bound both Noynoy and Roxas since political eternity.
Roxas apparently accepted the reality that the color of hubris had lost its luster and Noynoy and his cabal had no credibility with the Filipino nation.
Erice said there was a conscious decision to change colors because one mistake Roxas made in 2016 was to act like Robin to Aquino’s Batman.
“Robin will never be Batman,” Erice said.
The crumbling yellow monolith became too obvious after Noynoy’s celebrity sister Kris Aquino joined the fray lashing out at Erice for blaming Noynoy for Roxas’ downfall.
“Really — to blame his loss on my brother?” Aquino said in a now-archived Instagram post.
“So even his loss in 2010 was also the fault of Noy?” she added, referring to Roxas’ defeat in the vice-presidential race in 2010.
Roxas, however, is desperately disassociating himself with the yellow Otso Diretso in the hope of securing sympathy votes from the supporters of President Rody Duterte and prevent a shutout of the opposition, which seems imminent with the trend in the latest pre-poll surveys.
The gambit apparently came too late for Roxas since the voters will merely see through his desperation and only strengthen Rody’s assessment that he is a political butterfly with the way he easily shifted alliance from former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo where he was the Trade Secretary to Noynoy in whose term he assumed several posts at his convenience
It is futile for Roxas to classify himself as a candidate independent from the yellows since he had long been a kingpin of the LP and the main beneficiary of the yellow regime of Noynoy.
Noynoy even anointed him as a possible successor as payback to his supposed giving way as the LP standard bearer back in 2010.
Of course, Roxas had no chance of winning the presidency at that time based on his poor survey numbers and the LP had Noynoy who was then enjoying a yellow euphoria after the death of his mother Cory Aquino.
To most voters, the sudden switch of Roxas only showed his true political color which is neither yellow nor blue but a traitorous gray which is neither here nor there in terms of principle.
The effort obviously is to disconnect himself from Noynoy who is considered to have the kiss of political death to anybody associated with him due to the many cases he is facing, among which are the Dengvaxia scandal, the Disbursement Acceleration Program anomalies and the Mamasapano carnage of 44 Special Action Force commandos.
Roxas had been known to have exerted great efforts to portray himself as having no hand in the missteps of Noynoy which is a farfetched illusion.
Wherever Noynoy went, Roxas the doppelganger was there.
The yellow mob is disintegrating and so is the political future of Noynoy, Roxas and the scheming LP.
