Is Bong Bong Marcos Presidentiable?


welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

I idolized the late President Ferdinand Marcos same as I wanted to be like the late Ninoy Aquino – at least in his ability to handle public speaking and his journalistic skills. I was living in Thailand for 15 years and I was not in the country when President Marcos was ousted. When I came back for good in 2005, I began soul searching. I did not only research about my past but also about the personalities whom I looked up to. I got most of my reference materials from the Aquino museum in Tarlac for my research on Ninoy – but I was dismayed for the fact that he was using his media capabilities to rebel against the government despite not making a move to verify allegations. He was totally on the other side and believed only one-sided stories. So, I decided to look into the Marcos’ side. Believing that you can see how the parents were through the children, I was anxious to watch this video:

Is Bong Bong Marcos Presidentiable? I am not there yet to answer that question but I noted the following traits observed during the interview:

  • The late President Marcos never lost his temper
  • The Marcos children were protected from the traumatic experience during the Edsa revolution
  • Bong Bong Marcos is a wide reader – and he also read about the enemies of his father’s regime
  • There’s no sign of hatred in Bong Bong Marcos’s heart over the Aquino clan
  • Bong Bong Marcos is a logistic planner when he implemented improvements in his Ilocos territory
  • He is a fluent Tagalog speaker despite spending most of his young life abroad

The rest you can judge for yourself from the video. All I can say is – you can clearly see how knowledgeable Bong Bong Marcos is with what he is into, in contrast with President Noynoy Aquino’s CNN interview with Christiane Amanpour where he seems to be in limbo – answering the opposite on what is seen in the footage of the Typhoon Haiyan or Yolanda aftermath. Your call!
