• Leni runaway winner in VP race ­– Osmeña

    5

    Leni Robredo could be the sleeper in the 2016 elections.

    Sen. Sergio Osmeña 3rd, a known political strategist, believes that the Camarines Sur lawmaker–widow of good governance icon Jesse Robrero–would be the runaway winner in the race for vice president if her campaign is handled properly.

    “She’ll beat Chiz. I feel if she’s packaged properly, if she has the right message, she’s going to be, maybe a runaway winner,” he said as he referred to fellow senator Francis “Chiz” Escudero, who is believed to become the running mate of Sen. Grace Poe should she gun for the presidency.

    Escudero is ranked 3rd behind Poe and Interior Secretary Manuel Roxas 2nd in the latest pre-election surveys for vice president.

    Robredo was ranked 10th in the Social Weather Stations March survey, which had Escudero in the 2nd spot next to Poe.

    While admitting that she’s entertaining thoughts of running for higher office in 2016, Robredo said the vice presidency did not enter her mind.

    The possibility of fielding Robredo as the Liberal Party’s next viable candidate for vice president came up after negotiations to have Poe team up with Roxas–the Liberal Party’s standard-bearer–remain deadlocked.

    On Tuesday, a movement spearheaded by an LP leader, Quezon Rep. Lorenzo “Erin” Tañada 3rd, and Jesse Robredo’s colleagues in the Kaya Natin! Movement took off to drum up support for Mrs. Robredo’s possible run for the vice presidency.

    “She’s going to be an easy sell. She’s going to make a wonderful candidate. She’s going to be a very big plus for Mar [Roxas],” Osmeña said.

    “She has to be handled properly. She has to be exposed to the national audience. But I’ve seen so many people come and go in this business, the game of politics and normally once in a rare blue moon, you can spot somebody and say she’s going to be very attractive,” he added.

    The senator said having Robredo as the LP bet would be an advantage for Roxas because she has no political baggage and the first thing a presidential candidate must make sure of is that his vice president will not bring him down.

    1. Tama sabi ni Arturo . Mar talagang walang karisma sa tao Kayat kahit
      na anong pilit ni PNoy talagang hindi ito lalabas . Maraming kapalpakan
      kasi sa mga advisers ni PNoy kaya hindi na ito pinaniniwalaan ng
      taong bayan. Lalong lalo na itong si Big Boy Drilon .Ano na ba
      ang kaso niya na hangang gayon hidi pa rin ito kinakasohan
      hangang gayon. Magkikita pa rin kami ng personal hail hindi niya
      ako pinansin noong si Begoteng Erap ang presidente noon
      sa Siangrila ng San Juan . Mabuti pa si Vice Pres. Gingona kina usap
      niya ako.

      Ang tanong ko Binay at Corona lang ba ang laging nasa news . Iyong mga
      sabit sa DAP at Pork Barrel ni hindi ito nila binabangit. Oh politika kay
      sama na sa ating at pinag tatawanan lang tayo ng buong mundo.

    2. Sen. Osmena sana di ka nanaginip, si cong.Robredo nakilala lang yan noong mamatay ang asawa niyang si DILG Sec. Robredo, pero kahit saang lalawigan mo itanong si Cong.Robredo di kilala, ang apelyido kilala pero si Cong. Robredo hindi, kahit tumakbong senador yan talo!Kaya niya bang talunin si sen. Bong bong Marcos o Duterte? pag tumakbo silang vise presidente? ang election, alam mo yan senator di papularidad ang pinaguusapan hindi pekeng surveys, gaya din ni grace poe na bine bebe ng Media kung tumakbo siyang presidente pag dating ng election sigurado talo sila!

      Robredo over poe, for Vice President, no contest. Mar Roxas should stop wooing Poe. Leni Robredo the most humble government official, Lawyer, how can the Pilipino people not vote for her? The people should start a campaign for her.

    4. Between Chiz and Leni, Im up 100% for Leni Robredo. Chiz is a traditional politician cloaked in the blanket of youth and celebrity-like life.

    5. Under God, Mar Roxas and Leni Robredo has the support of God since they are good, honest, and non-corruptible. They are the only ones and the best team to represent for “Tuwid ang Daan”. I am not a politician, but i work for God. Leni is only scared, but with good faith in God. Mar and Leni will devote themselves to the work of God, and help the Filipino People and continue.Aquino good works and Jesse Robredo sacrifice for his life.

      The GOOD will always conquer the EVIL. GO MAR ROXAS FOR PRESIDENT AND LENI ROBREDO FOR VICE PRESIDENT IN 2016.
