(Video) Noynoy Aquino: A Jejemon Politician

When confronted with questions regarding his achievements while in Congress, he becomes a fine example of a Jejemon, defined as someone who talks unintelligibly, veers away from the topic because he doesn't have anything relevant to say, and seemingly has a low IQ. If you observe carefully in the video, even the interviewer was a bit confused with what Aquino answered.


I've used this common argument in a forum to denounce Aquino as an exploiter of his parents' legacy:
Forum Member: the masses choose the most trustworthy, not the candidate with the least integrity. 

My Reply: I don't think so, pal. I mean come on, after all those dreadful years we've had with Erap, he still ranks at the top 3 in election surveys. Is he trustworthy? Hell no. does he have any integrity? Of course not, with all those jueteng crimes he did; the [main] thing he has is his popularity. That's why inquirer always label him as the actor-turned-president. [As for Noynoy, he's relying on his parents' legacy.]
Aquino was also recently placed on Time Magazine's cover page, with an accompanying article The Next Aquino: Can Noynoy Save the Philippines? My answer is no. Even the article explains why, albeit seemingly neutral and fair at first but ultimately (sadly) favoring Noynoy in its perspective.

I am not hesitant to label myself as anti-Aquino, since I believe the man is not fit for the job. 

What do you guys think?

  1. I respect all your critics with noynoy, but the question is, may nagawa ka na ba para sa bansa? are you capable enough with your words? tingin ko ang mga kritikong katulad mo ay mga taong walang magawa sa buhay. yong mga taong puro salita pero kulang naman sa gawa. pero wala ka nang magagawa. mg dadalawang taon na syang presidente ng pilipinas! haha

    1. I don't know the exact term but I'm pretty sure your question is a logical fallacy, perhaps evading the issue.

      But to answer your question, of course I've done something for the country. But obviously my contributions are hardly comparable to what a powerful president can do, which is something I criticized about PNoy thanks to his incapability and apparent inexperience at the time.
