It appears that “the fog of war and politics” that the Inquirer alluded to in its Sept. 16 editorial has obscured the perspective of its editorial writer.
Apparently, when Vice President Jejomar Binay negotiated with his “college classmate” Nur Misuari last Friday, to try to end the fighting in Zamboanga City, he did so on his own behalf. That is to say, he did not represent President Aquino but acted as his own principal. How else explain the astonishing statement he made, [...]

Four days after President Aquino delivered his fourth State of the Nation Address on July 22, Pulse Asia released the results of its June 20-July 4 survey that showed the President and Vice President Jejomar Binay continuing to enjoy high approval and trust ratings from a large majority of Filipinos. According to the survey, Binay [...]

Brand-new senator JV Ejercito, son of Manila Mayor Joseph “Erap” Estrada and San Juan Mayor Guia Gomez, was one of the three guests at the Kapihan sa Manila at the Diamond hotel last Monday. The others were Deputy Director Teodoro Pascua of Tesda and Raymond Fortun, lawyer of the family of Angelito San Juan, who died of injuries suffered during the explosion in a condo unit last month in Ayala Land’s Two Serendra in Taguig City.

Can it be that Jojo Binay has lost some clout with the public, falling in its esteem not so inconsequentially? So the SWS says, by all of eight points, from an “excellent” 70 to a “good” 62.

There’s no hard evidence to confirm it. But the growing perception is that at no other time in our nation’s political history have political families become more brazen in promoting their interests than in this year’s elections. One quickly notes this in the senatorial slates of the two dominant coalitions. The opposition United Nationalist Alliance (UNA) slate is led by the children of the three key figures who formed the coalition, namely the son of former President Joseph Estrada, the daughter of Vice President Jejomar Binay, and the son of Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile. The administration’s Team PNoy is not any different. Two-thirds of its 12 candidates belong to political families.
Of the 33 candidates for the Senate, only one has no achievements to speak of, no accomplishments to her name. Nancy Binay has not served in an elective or appointive office; she has not run a company or a nongovernment organization; and until very recently, she has not championed a public-oriented advocacy or taken a [...]
