3 reasons Villar should be president

Reading a tweet about Sen. Manny Villar and his security convoy going the wrong way down a one-way street yesterday made me realize something.

Senator Manuel Villar Jr is the president we deserve.  Not the one we need, just what we deserve because if you really think about it, Manny Villar is us.

He Was Born Poor

Think about it. He was born in poverty, just like all the rest of us. Maybe you weren’t born poor, maybe you grew up in a stately manor, but guess what? There’s enough poverty to go around, so it sort of averages out. You were born in poverty too, by the sheer ubiquitousness of poverty in the Philippines.

Tunay na Mahirap

He won’t let you forget it, either. His very response to the allegations against him is this: napakahirap bang isipin na ang isang mahirap ay puwedeng maging presidente sa Pilipinas (is it that hard to accept that someone poor can become president of the Philippines?) It’s pretty much the whole idea behind his campaign, the very raison d’etre of one Manny Villar.

He’s Just Another Victim

When caught, he plays the victim (of inconsiderately placed one-way streets, say,) and insists on his innocence. He’s not guilty, he’s just being persecuted, a mentality that everyone from your illegal sidewalk vendor to Marlene Aguilar has.

He refuses to face the charges against him, and instead talks to everyone about how unjust and rigged everything is. To everyone except his accusers, at any rate.

His supporters say that it’s all political, and people are just talking crap because they’re jealous of him. And, really, this line of reasoning isn’t all that foreign to us. We’ve probably used it too at some point. Maybe not about million-peso road projects, but it’s the principle of the thing.

Principle, you say?

He Throws Money At Problems

Failing that, he (allegedly) tried to bribe Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile to go easy on him, and if anonymous text messages can be trusted (they cannot), he’s offered everything from millions of pesos to cabinet positions to his underlings.

Which, if you think about it, is exactly what a lot of us would do in that situation. True, your average Filipino will probably never have to (nor have the money to) bribe Senate President Enrile, but would think nothing of losing 100 pesos to your friendly neighborhood MMDA traffic cop to get out of trouble.

Flagging ratings because a former president dies, and then suddenly here comes a new challenger? No problem. Just flood everything with campaign ads. If the latest Pulse Asia survey is to be believed, that strategy seems to have worked: Villar has overtaken the Liberal Party’s Senator Benigno Aquino III by one percentage point. Statistically irrelevant (perhaps), but it shows that no matter how many times Mareng Winnie Monsod explains (and refutes Villar’s defenders on ) the C5 issue, Villar isn’t slowing down at all.

Which means that for all the voter education campaigns, debates and an 84-page Senate report on the C5 issue, more Filipinos might still vote for this guy because he was born poor, so he’s noble; he’s already rich so he won’t steal;because, if you don’t vote for him, fuck you, bias ka.

  1. reminds me of something max soliven once quoted (from a founding father–i forget the name), which, paraphrased goes, like: “you only get the leader you deserve.”

    if so, then we are so damned to hell…

    man, i miss manong max…

  3. Manny Villar blameless?
    By Solita Collas-Monsod
    Philippine Daily Inquirer
    01/30/2010
    WHILE the Senate is declaring a moratorium on the discussion of the ethics case against Sen. Manny Villar, here are some incontrovertible facts, presented in Q & A form. The source of the information is also given.
    * Question: What roadway projects are the subject matter of the Villar ethics controversy?

    Answer:
    1. The Manila Cavite Toll Expressway Project (MCTEP), the original C-5 south extension project, linking SLEX with the Coastal Road ;
    2. the DPWH C-5 Extension project (CX-5), which together with
    3. the Las Piñas-Parañaque Link Project (LPPLP), also links SLEX with the Coastal Road .

    Source: Senate Report (SR) 780.

    * Q: Is the CX-5/LPPLP project a realignment, as Sen. Jamby Madrigal describes it, or has there been no realignment, as Senator Villar’s allies insist?

    A: Technically there has been no realignment, because these are two separate roads linking C-5 from SLEX to the Coastal Road . But they are very close together and, in some areas, overlap, as can be ascertained from a site map.

    Source: interactive map available at http://www.gmanews. tv: http://www.gmanews. tv/story/ 182541/the- c5-extension- controversy- an-interactive- map

    * Q: Are there any differences between the MCTEP and the CX-5/LPPLP?

    A: Yes.
    1. The MCTEP is a joint-venture project between the government and a private Malaysian partner, with the government’s financial exposure limited to P2.68 billion for the purchase of the road right-of-way; the private partner is responsible for the construction of the project, for which tolls will be charged. The CX-5/LPPLP is a toll-free, wholly-financed government project costing P6.96 billion;
    2. The CX-5/LPPLP is longer than the MCTEP, its extra length essentially covering the LPPLP portion;
    3. The CX-5/LPPLP passes through more Villar properties than the MCTEP.

    Source: DPWH project documents cited as Exhibits A, B and TTTT in SR 780; site map from http://www.gmanews. tv.

    * Q: How large are the Villar company landholdings in the immediate vicinity of the questioned road projects?

    A: At least 50-52 hectares: 40 hectares in the vicinity of the LPPLP; 10-12 hectares in the area between Sucat Road and Multinational Avenue .

    Source: testimony of Anastacio Adriano Jr., senior vice president and general manager, chief operating officer of Adelfa Properties Inc. and other Villar-owned companies up to 2008; self-styled consultant and political officer of Senator Villar since August 2008. Nota bene: Senate employment records do not include his name.

    Nota bene: it is not clear whether the 50-52 hectares mentioned above include properties cited in SR 780—roughly 10 hectares in area—to be developed by Villar companies in joint venture with their owners.

    * Q: What is the involvement of Villar in CX-5 and LPPLP?

    A:
    1. The Project Feasibility Study of the DPWH for CX-5 states: “The conceptualization of and the initial release of funds for the CX-5 Project was initiated by Sen. Manuel Villar whose same efforts also paved the way for the funding of the Las Piñas-Parañaque Link Road [LPPLP]”;
    2. Various insertions and amendments (Priority Development Assistance Fund, read pork barrel) in the national government budget over the years 2002-2008 for CX-5 and LPPLP;
    3. Adriano (cited above), in the office of and presence of Villar, dictating to the director general of the Senate’s Legislative Budget Research and Monitoring Office (LBRMO) Villar’s proposed amendments to the 2008 budget, including a P400-million appropriation for the CX-5.
    Source: documents submitted by DPWH, lawyer Yolanda Doblon of the LBRMO, testimony of both Doblon and Adriano, cited in SR 780.

    * Q: Were the Villar properties bought for road right-of-way overpriced?
    A: SR 780 argues for the affirmative; PSR 1472 (the resolution signed by Villar and his allies exonerating him from all charges) argues for the negative. This calls for a conclusion of the reader.

    And to help that along, I have—based on the documented prices and acreage of the lands purchased in connection with the LPPLP—computed the weighted average prices that were paid for the Villar and related properties, and those paid for the non-Villar properties.

    The results: The Villar/related properties, comprising 23,455 square meters, were bought for P168.1 million. The non-Villar properties, comprising 11,685 square meters, were bought for P22 million. That comes to a weighted average of P7,168 per square meter for Villar’s properties, and P1,880 per square meter for the non-Villar properties. That has to be a statistically significant difference.

    Given the above facts—which no one can contest, since they are based on official documents, and not on a he-says-she- says set of assertions—it has to be reasonable to conclude:
    1. Since there was already an ongoing project (the MCTEP) linking C-5 to the Coastal Road , it was totally unnecessary to build a second one.
    2. Which means that there was a waste of scarce resources. Instead of using only P2.6 billion of government funds for the first project, the government had to spend an additional P6.9 billion for the second, which practically duplicated the first, except for the additional length which happily for Senator Villar, traversed his properties.
    3. This unnecessary, wasteful project was certainly Villar’s idea. It is specious to argue that it is a DPWH project. As the DPWH feasibility study states (in black and white), both the CX-5 and the LPPLP were conceived and initially funded by Villar.
    4. Villar benefited tremendously from the second project. Certainly, his companies were paid significantly more per square meter for the road right of way (which were mostly bought from him). But that pales into insignificance compared with the tremendous increase in the values of his real estate holdings in the area—at least 50-52 hectares.
    Is he blameless? Is the Pope protestant?

  4. So I vote for villar because of his rags-to-riches story? Because he’s one of us, and is just a victim? These are the reasons why he should be the next president?? Please, you’re buying the crap he’s been selling for a year already. His image is but a product of some PR company’s desk.

    For the love of country, we need a VISIONARY LEADER with the EXPERIENCE and RECORD to prove it! Villar has none of that. If he has, then by all means write about it. if you don’t, then fuck you, bias ka.

  5. Hi! Im going to vote for Manny Villar. You know why?Because I like Michael V., and I love Dolphy, and I believe in them so i believe in Manny Villar too. I also like little boys, Madam Auring and Kris Aquino.

  6. Hi! I’m going to vote for Manny Villar because he isn’t that painful to look at. And neither is his daugher. rwawwrr.

    @Nepenthe. Young boys? You too? I’ve found a brother!

    Unfortunately, I have to explain that this is all sarcasm. Sucks all the fun out of it doesn’t it?

  7. Sadly people, the famous quote will never really die and will still hit us in the face. “IN ANY DEMOCRACY, THE PEOPLE GET THE GOVERNMENT THAT THEY DESERVE”. It is still up to us to make things right. We are shown a handful of choices for future leaders once again. In my province, people gives candidates blackmailing statements like “If he/she can’t give me what I want (Something purely personal and utterly for pure luxury), I will vote for you’re rival”. Now if those people cannot change their FREAKINGLY INSANE ATTITUDES, we are all doomed to stay the way we are. That is also the main problem in a MULTICULTURAL SOCIETY.

  8. my dad and i talk a lot about villar and how apocalyptic it would be if he became president. he spent like, a buttload of millions in his ad campaigns. what kind of person would spend his so-called “hard earned” money just to get a 24 hour headache-inducing job that pays only a fraction of what he used to earn? ….service to the filipinos? really? manny, some of us are smarter than that…

    he’s a businessman. he knows where to invest his money.

    I SWEAR BABAWIIN NYA LAHAT NG GINASTOS NYA!

    plus profit of course!

    now that he’s the leading candidate on the latest surveys.. it just shows that the philippines’ rate of impending doom is getting higher by the minute.

    it also shows how gullible(?) the rest of us are. i mean, his detractors try their best to inform everyone about his crap..take the C5 extension scandal, its all over the news …mga pare 70% of the filipinos DO NOT CARE ABOUT THE NEWS..some dont even understand the news..filipinos would rather watch Stupid soap operas which does not say anything about his anomalies. and the sad thing is, during commercial breaks HIS EFFING ADS ARE ALWAYS BEING PLAYED. which gives most of us the impression that he “cares,emathizes” about the poor

    that is why he’s currently the leading presidentiable …..

    and the worst thing is WE SHARE THE SAME LAST NAME… AAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! badtrip!

    i’m not in anyway related to this creep manny villar. even if i am, i DENOUNCE IT!

    people. please dont vote for this person. he’s only in it for himself and his business… i dont want my tax pesos to pay for his luxurious lifestyle. HELL NO!

  9. Villar still refuses to attend the Senate to face questions, and it only reminds me of how GMA used the privilege of her office to avoid questioning. What will happen if Villar wins and more corruption scandals surface?

    With Villar catching up to Noynoy in the polls, I am honestly quite terrified of the prospect of him winning. There is a clear case of graft in this instance, and instead of delving into the issues, his allies in the legislative are simply brushing off the allegations as “politically motivated”. As a citizen, we should not accept this. If there is smoke, we must see if there is a fire that needs to be put out. Yes, the timing of the allegations seem a bit off. ( Joker Arroyo was pushing these issues as early as 1998). A known crook and political opportunist, Juan Ponce Enrile, is the person leading the censure. However, when the facts are presented, it is clear as day that something is amiss. It just further builds on my strong suspicions that Villar is a businessman simply looking to control the political arena to make a boat load of money.

    I have never trusted Villar since day one. I never trust businessmen who enter politics, because in the end, their core value is and always will be profit maximization. It is well documented that Villar’s real estate empire ran into some serious financial problems when his overexposure to the real estate market and the Asian Financial Crisis made him unable to pay debts he took out to expand his real estate business in the early 1990s. After the Asian Crisis hit, Capitol Bank, owned by Villar and heavily exposed to his real estate investments was essentially ran to the ground and needed to be bailed out. In 2005, Villar tried to solve his debt problems by hiring a group of investment banks to advise him on how he can consolidate all his assets into one company (Vista Land). With the local and foreign investment bankers, Villar came up with a growth story for investors: “Invest in my company because we need it to fund all these wonderful project!” However, what was downplayed during the IPO roadshow was that instead of financing growth, resources from the offering would be used to finance his debt. To appease creditors, Villar even had his investment bankers pitch some form of a debt-to-equity conversion that raised skeptical eyebrows of many. In 2007, the IPO of Vista Land did not do as well as planned, in part because many investors and brokers were the same people who were burned by Villar’s inability to pay back his loans.

    Now, as part of a corporate growth (or should I say corporate restructuring) plan, Villar is lusting for the highest position in the land. This scares me because Villar already has a track record of using his political position to gain the upper hand for his businesses. To save his empire and increase shareholder value of his business, Villar used his influence as Senate Finance Chair to shrewdly derail a Cavite road project that was supposed to be BUILD, OPERATE, and TRANSFER. Villar built a longer and more expensive road, the C-5 extension, adjacent to it; subsequently forcing the private investor in the initial project to pull out. The fishy thing is that this new road, longer and more expensive than the previously planned project, passed through all of Villar’s land in Cavite. It is a clear case of graft, pointing to Villar use of influence and government funds to substantially improve the values of his real estate properties. To add insult to injury the right of way the government would have to pay in order to complete the project was substantially higher for the land that Villar owned. These funds could have easily been used to build needed schools.

    This scandal should be a red flag for all voters. However, the scary part is that Villar is spending billions to keep this out of the picture as he continues his attempt to brainwash our masses that he is their saviour. He convinces the masses that he is one of them. A poor boy from the slums of Tondo. In actuality, he is more like the 5-6 and syndicates, slum dwellers themselves who make a profit out of their poor brethren. Villar’s ad agencies are doing an excellent job of maintaining this image as well as doing damage control. TV and radio continues to churn out Parokya Ni Edgaresque jingles that compete with “Nobody, Nobody.” Dolphy is Villar’s new spokesperson and Wowowee is one giant ad for him. In this process of brainwashing, the masses are not cognizant of how Villar conducts business as a politician. What they do not see is a man hell bent on turning our archipelago into his own personal piece of real estate.

    It is sad that the efforts of Juan Ponce Enrile, who is leading the censure for Villar, is actually giving Villar more sympathy votes. People do no trust Enrile, and when Enrile pounces on someone, it is usually met with a high degree of skepticism. I do not blame people for feeling this way. I also think Enrile is a crook who should be jailed for conspiring to implement Martial Law, for coup attempts, and for the human rights abuses during the Marcos regime. If someone with a more respectable reputation were to level these charges on Villar, I am sure the surveys would tell a different story.

    I also fear from some credible reports that Malacanang has actually made a deal with Villar (under the table). Essentially, GMA’s goons said, “We will help you, in return, leave us alone when you win”. Villar’s behaviour in recent forums further adds credence to these reports as Villar has been very tame and quiet when it comes to how he will treat GMA after the elections. Appealing to common sense, it makes ALL THE SENSE for GMA to support someone who has a chance of winning, not a person rating at 4% in the surveys. GMA tried to reach out to Noynoy after Tita Cory died. All she got was rejection.

    Who can stop Villar in his quest for the presidency?

    I am known to be a Noynoy supporter, but to those skeptics and to those who are still undecided, I do concede that he is not perfect. His record as a politician is average and unspectacular at best. He does not have the charisma of his father. Before the death of his mother, he did not get much mileage. But I am going all out in support for Noynoy in 2010 because he stands for clean governance and appear willing to accomplish this. In addition, he has the best chance of preventing a opportunistic businessman, the assured next President of our country before Cory died, from using the Office of the President as a personal growth asset to his business empire.

    Noynoy’s clean record is a big plus for me. It is a trait that I think should be the most important quality that we should look for in our next president. His appeal is that his track record is not tarnished by corruption scandals and his political debts are minimal. I know that many critics are trying to make an issue over his involvement in Hacienda Luisita, but Noynoy is not even heavily involved in the company. As a shareholder, Noynoy only owns .04% of Hacienda Luisita, a drop in the ocean and hardly in any position to do something about it. The case of the Hacienda does not have the substance that the C-5 extension controversy has a lot of.

    In addition, Nonoy also has an incredible legacy to live up to. All the pressure is on him to be clean and stay clean. He can’t afford to tarnish the Aquino name and the immense legacy that his parents left behind. Cory and Ninoy practically sacrificed their family for their dream of a better Philippines. For Noynoy, to know that your father and mother went through so much hardship to improve our country is a heavy burden to think about if you do decide to become a crook and destroy everything that they fought for.

    We all have to make a choice. In my opinion, it has to go to the presidentiable who has an independent mind, stands up for what he believes in, is clean, and has the legacy his parents to live up to and maintain. For me, Nonoy, with all his flaws, is that candidate. For what this
    country needs is a clean president who can set an example top-down for the entire state; it needs a president with the will to change things and stamp out corruption; it needs a President who can set an example and is willing to perfect our dysfunctional democracy.

    I want someone who stands for being clean. He does not need a degree from Harvard. He does not need to have a multi-million peso business to show me he can make us all rich. He does not have to speak well. He just has to be clean. Nothing else should matter. He has to prioritize a platform of clean and effective governance and make sure that it delivers on that promise. Policies on the economy, education, energy, environment and health can all follow after the fundamentals are taken cared of. So far, the only candidate who promotes my vision with a clean record to back it up is Noynoy.

    Our urban landscape is replete with political slogans that attempt to convince people of certain candidate’s ability to lead our nation

    Galing at Talino? Sorry Gibo, those were the supposed qualities of GMA, rubber stamped with a Phd in Economics. And what happened? She only worsened our economy. To GMA’s credit she did balance our budget at one point, but it has again ballooned to the level where the next president will have to deal with the same economic issues she faced in 2005. During
    GMA’s watch investment in infrastructure was insufficient, poverty incidence worsened, public education deteriorated, our nautical highway is still incomplete, goons like the Ampatuan’s flourished in the south, and a culture of corruption flourished in our institutions. Instead of creating jobs, GMA focused on a policy of exporting labor without measuring the
    social costs of such a policy- thousands of broken OFW families and children of OFW’s who do not have the proper parental supervision to teach them the differences between right and wrong. In effect, our next generation is left on their own to figure out how to become empowered patriots who love their country and will fight to defend it. In effect, whatever statistics in GDP growth GMA and her allies love to advertise, non of it trickled down and benefitted the poor..and none of it accounts for the social costs to her policies.

    Good speaker? Sorry Gibo, Marcos had that quality and he did nothing good for our contry. In fact, Marcos squandered the opportunity to be our Lee Kuan Yew and Dr. Mahatir. If I want a good, charismatic, and eloquent speaker, let’s just run down the list of effective public speakers and vote them in.

    Para sa mahirap? Sorry Erap, you had your chance and failed miserably. Your only accomplishment is in convincing our masses that movie roles do not carry over into the political area.

    My only concern with Noynoy is how deep he might be in the Liberal Party and whether he has accumulate political debts to Liberal trapos. The Liberal PArty, like any party, has its own share of crooks (including those bandwagon trapos who jumped off GMA”s boat to ride on Aquino’s popularity). How much will Nonoy have to give back to the LIberal trapos (and bandwagon Liberals who jumped GMA’s ship) if elected? We will never know. However, I am willing to live with that unanswered question if it means preventing someone like Villar from turning the Philippines into Vista Land’s next subdivision development. I am also reassured by the fact that he has that “Aquino” name and the ghosts of his parents to answer to if does decide to go down the immoral path.

    Nonoy will not solve all our problems. One person can’t. But we need a start somewhere and it should be with someone who pushes honesty, reform, and good governance. It will be a tough battle, but I want to give Noynoy the chance to build on what his mother tried to accomplish. And I hope that if Noynoy wins, he will have the courage to make tough decisions and go after crooks, even if it means hurting a lot of friends and colleagues in government.

    To give you a better sense on how Villar conducts business, here is also a link to Joker Arroyo’s 1998 privilege speech: link here

    I guess “if it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, and looks like a duck..” Well, as the saying goes……

    Vote wisely Philippines. And continue to work towards uplifting the masses and freeing them from their state of hopelessness. Defend them from opportunists. DEVELOP THEM (FIRST) SPIRITUALLY AND BEHAVIORALLY; THEN ECONOMICALLY! When we lift up the poor and ween them off the mentality of hopelessness, our country will become first world. Only then will we have the powerful middle class that our young democracy is screaming for.

  10. tl;dr.

    If Aquino can’t control Hacienda Luisita with his measly 0.4% stake in it, how the hell does he hope to control the corruption in this damn country where he owns less than that?

  11. Villar is not really poor…. He’s a graduate of Holy Child School (private) and Mapua High School (private)….

  15. sorry po.. naging tatlo yung post ko.. pa delete nlang.. sabi po kc error eh.. yun pala nag display. thanks!

  16. @rain: yeah, man. could you substantiate that? that’s something we should really look into. and that villarroyo thing.

  17. just a thought, do you really think that only the rich can graduate in private schools? how about those student assistants who worked hard just to finish their studies? very narrow minded people…duh?

  18. @gelay: I actually do not believe that at all. I attended a private school, and my family is by no means rich. We didn’t swim in seas of garbage or anything, but we didn’t have much in the way of luxuries either.

  19. @1T me too. couldn’t afford an extra pair of undies in high school, actually. but still, when someone makes it a point to pummel his poordom in my face every doggone day, it does get old real quick.

    however, from a strategic point of view. I think his media campaign is spot on brilliant. especially the jingle (LSS factor of 10!).

    unfortunately, brilliant to the point of derision.
