I would say Mar Roxas is very qualified to be the next President of Philippines. He was former Senator of the Philippines. He is grandson of former President Manuel Roxas and industrialist J. Amado Araneta. A graduate of the Wharton School, Roxas worked as an investment banker, mobilizing venture capital funds for small and medium enterprises.[1] He served as the Representative of the 1st District of Capiz from 1993 to 2000. His stint as Congressman was cut short after he was appointed by President Joseph Estrada as Secretary of Trade and Industry. Senate seat in the 2004 Philippine election. He was elected as Senator with 19 million votes and the highest ever garnered by a national candidate in any Philippine election and co-author of Expanded Value Added Tax Law. Secretary of Transportation and Communications under present govt.

Grace Poe is the favorite! But a woman is proven that can't handle a country like PH. No to Poe please. Maybe as VP but president no!!. Our first choice should be honest... no smear of corruption. Escudero is not because he is not totally free of charges. The best is Mar Roxas because he came from a well known family and good background. Have not read any bad records yet. We need a president to be presented in the whole world with good background. Let's try Mar and see what he can do as president. I think he's hard-working like Pnoy.... and strict.

Grace Poe is the right choice for the next president of the Philippines. I am fed-up with traditional politician who floated to be the best fit for the position of President but came out to be the most corrupt, rotten and a disgrace to the Pilipinos. I need a person without record of corruption of stealing money from the national coffer. Those running for the highest office should learn to shout "HUWAG KANG MAGNAKAW."

This editorial is demolishing Grace Poe. just hope that Binay did not bribe folks in the media to write this. This motive of destruction was preceded by Binay's comment that Grace Poe is inexperienced. How can she be inexperienced when she's been a leader since high school then at U.P., Diliman proceeding to U.S. to finish her graduate studies after having lived here in U.S. for more than 10 years. Grace Poe have a global awareness and way of thinking that NONE OF THE CANDIDATES HAVE. The other candidates are OLD POLITICS whereas Grace Poe is already initiating change from old politics with a PROGRESSIVE MIND to move the Philippines forward and be respected by foreign leaders. Right now, the Philippine government have the worst of image worldwide and Grace Poe will change this because SHE MEANS SERVICE and COMMITMENT to move the Philippines forward.

We're definitely not pro-Binay. Read our previous editorial on him LINK - PNL

Grace Poe and Mar Roxas have no records of corruptions like father like daughter/son of Fernando Poe Jr. and Sen Gerry Roxas. Anong say niyo Pinoy BOBOTANTES. Compared to Marcos, Binays, Revillas, Estradas, etc. etc. etc.

We'd better reconsider the argument that Poe lacks the experience. Hence, Poe is unqualified to become president. None of the past presidents had political experience before becoming president. Cory was a mere housewife. Erap was an actor before becoming mayor and later president. Magsaysay had no political experience until he was appointed secretary of defense and eventually president. Ramos had only military experience and training, secretary of national defense added to his political resume as a start before becoming president. Remember that everything started from nothing. PNL' argument and others are weak.

There are no inborn politicians who do not have to udergo on -the -job training. This makes them different from technocrats we hire in business or appoint to head government agencies. You could not make POE make foreign policy decisions regarding our differences with China nor enter into a peace agreement with MILF. POE' s job is to legislate. This article could have taken this point into account.

I would like to pose this question to the editor who wrote the opinion that Poe is not yet ready to become president. All presidents in the past were all inexperienced. They had never been president of a country. I don't think Poe is cerebrally challenged neither had she been involved in any inappropriate government transaction. She is more articulate than Erap who was once a president of this country.

Before we continue disqualifying Senator Grace Poe, how many of past presidents wrote essays, books or articles? About her residency, how come someone was able to run and won as a mayor in one of our big cities. That someone was not even a resident. All that someone did to be a resident was bought a house in that city without number of years of residency and won the election. Voters: Think hard before casting your votes.

If I had gone overseas no man could say I have not done anything at all to enrich my self personally and professionally unless people are totally unaware of my life. Wikipedia is just a finger away in the keyboard to reveal who I am. Evidently, the writer of this article never bothered nor made any attempt to get enough facts or info about Grace Poe. To get one's feet wet in politics ( or a taste of it ) a person either gets appointed or elected in public office. Poe went through that route. First as chair of MTRCB and second as senator. Did she remain in the senate as stage prop like Lito Lapid or Lucy Torres and even Manny Pacquiao of the house? HELL NO.

Re: Qualification of Poe..She has not been in government for a long time e.g. 4 years as a legislator, but her qualifications would be decided by the voters..Atty Fortun wrote in some column that Grace Poe is not qualified..,of course because Atty Fortun is supporting some one else. After all he is legal counsel to some people who massacred news reporters, TV & Radio newsmen. If it were between Poe and Binay the people should choose Poe as there is evidence that the VP has a penchant for collecting real Estate. One of the biggest real estate investors who was unmasked by the Senators was Impeached in 2013.

You can't compare grace poe to lito lapid or other experienced politicians. grace poe is highly educated, smart and not corrupt.

Statements like - " This is not America's war. It is our matter and the Americans are merely standing by to support our cause.. Think about it." Of course--no argument there. I have been saying that all along! Filipinos should not rely on Americans actively participating in a Filipino war or local affairs for that matter!

A hawk commented - "This statement is a prime example of a political attitude of liberal entitlement which is really based on cowardice and the denial of reality..." So what is wrong with having a liberal sentiment? And why is it based "on cowardice and the denial of reality"? Isn't it a reality that if a hot war between China and USA occur-- Filipinos will suffer because the country is going to be a battlefield? Is it "cowardice" or just a pragmatic statement?

Some guy from NY said that China's claim to all disputed islands in South China Seas is valid.. Those islands are hers. My question is: " what is this man's proof". ? If he is supporting the nine-dash line argument of China, that is a weak argument.

Somebody correctly opined that what Aquino did during the stand-off at West Phil. see is commendable and a show of good foresight. You can't conduct foreign relations purely on 'SILAKBO' ng diddib". The editor's criticism is out of place and not well thought of. If you know about the Cuban missile crisis when all U.S. generals and admirals were on the edge and wanted to bomb Cuba when a U2 bomber was shot down over Cuba by Russian missile, Kennedy did not respond with haste. The rest is history. Magbasa naman kayo. Hindi ito pelikula.

Penoy is corrupt and stubborn, you know why he bribed the judges in the Corona case. Not only that his corrupt friends were kept them. Supreme court said the PDAP was unconstitutional but when you check 2015 budget the Unknown amount of billion pesos are still there.In my point of view Penoy image is going to collapse and once his term end. He and his faithful friends may end in the jail in 2016.

I would like to get the opinion of the publisher on the merits of K-12 which is Pnoy's signature educational program. Let the readers get educated what the publisher and its editors know that we don't.
