Presidential Debates are just waste of time?! What?! :-(

Hello Lotters, It seemed i may have to break my promise of going on entirely with my life and leaving this politically insane Election period to it's course. I went to face book and log-in to the my chosen candidate fan page to see some updates. I don't know if my blood pressure was raised or something but i felt rage inside while being silent for almost ten minutes. Why? The Presidential candidate who is TOP in the surveys said "Debates are just waste of time" he even said it's completely waste of time and doesn't believe that people are watching, Duh! Is he dreaming? Not a referral Link. http://www.journal.com.ph/index.php/top-stories/5028-noynoy-debates-just-waste-of-time.html First, he flip-flops on two issues like the RH bill and Tax increase. Okay, am clear with that because some US lotters told me that Politicians do change positions on issues "AFTER" they're in position, well, i understand that. But Now, another interview stating by the TOP Survey CAndidate himself that "he won't be attending any more debates. so, is this the kind of President that I want, who backs down from a civil debate simply because he sheltered himself to the media network and the survey that BAcks him up? (for pinoy lotters only, cause it doesn't have subtitles) First, he didn't like to be in debates because he hates the moderator being biased. but hey, he didn't got mad when the network that backs him up was bias on his rival cousin Not a referral Link. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d0bwTBZ7aHo Then after that he challenges the Second TOp survey candidate in a one on one debate? Remember? Not a referral link either.. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j_9u_Qysh7o But now yet again, he FLIP-FLOPS and doesn't want to be challenged anymore? i know why, you(the candidate), doesn't have the BALLS and can't Keep up with the "Real Candidates", and the same to most specially the second top survey candidate(Vil-liar)! Obviously, NOT a Referral LInk. http://www.journal.com.ph/index.php/top-stories/5028-noynoy-debates-just-waste-of-time.html To my pinoy lotters who supports this person: WAKE UP!!! if he can't debate and answer issues now what more if he's in the Office..scandals here and there and then what? RALLY! RALLY! RALLY! all over again, oh my..think about it.very seriously. TO MY BELOVED US LOTTERS: What kind of a candidate who would just fliplops and just say he won't participate in the debates? isn't this madness or something. he's delussioned that "no one" is watching these debates where I on the other had been watching it since LAst year... NO Offense, but am Offended by his Decision, it's my right since I am a Voter. Thank you..and have a great day (obviously am not having one)

Oh my! this is deep in politics but I agree to Letran! Even if I don't watch this forum in television I can clearly see that nonoy is not a good president to be voted for. He is always doing criticism, his pride weighs more than the people supporting him, and he can't even control his emotions. If this is the case then it wouldn't be a good future in our country.

I never thought you can go deep in politics here, my friend. I used to be for noy-noy because i hear it from commercials and regards to his parents. but some how, it didn't feel right when i started watching videos regarding the debates, i never gave it much of a thought until i saw this discussion. this is truly enlighten indeed. but if media is doing some thing else and not showing all the issues then i won't vote for noynoy either. Thanks.

i know that you have said, that it is enough of your political discussions but i have been keeping this notifier for more than 48 hours now, so i want to give some reactions. i told you earlier that it's a good decision that you just go back lotting instead of getting to the political thing. i frankly tell you that i did not watched the videos but read the link you gave here. i just want to give suggestion, that i think it is better for us to campaign for our bets if we feel that the candidate is the one who most deserve to be voted to that position, but i just hate personal assassination. i you feel he is job, then go tell the world how good he is. but i don't want to hear people talking about negative aspects of the rival. i don't know, i guess that is unfair and maybe that is politics, one do not uplift the other but pull down by with any which way they can. actually, this is one interest that i hate, that is why, when i feel like posting a discussion about politics, i start it in my "not interested at all" interest. needless to say, this is one of the longest winding topic to be discussed, i think second to religion. these two topics or interests are just some of the few interests that i wish, i have not joined, read and respond to. but there are just some times, i can't help but read and response. good luck anyway for you chosen candidate and to your job hunting. by the way, i was going to sleep earlier, but thought about responding to this one before i go to bed. i gave special time for this as you gave special invitation.

It's never a waste of time. Despite of the sugar coated words and promises the lines itself tell us what kind of candidate we are vying for--personally. Its not the words but the sincerity.

HEllo Naisan, unfortunately, the latest article had been deleted for some reason, unfortunately. this proves that they want the winnable in the surveys to win regardless of platforms. he can't win in debates, then how can he handles issues, if he's not gonna answer them now how can he answer it when it's already in the office.

I have seen Noynoy in the congress once, but i never seen him became an active debater except when they're bashing him with issues he's not aware of. how could you just allowed this guy to be president in the first place, am lucky that i won't have to be there when he wins, they're just gonna control him, like what they did to erap.

hello rebel, I am not sure how they got it out. am sure ABS CBN is blaming themselves for allowing the debates to happen because it's not favoring they're bet. instead, it has back fired and focuse more on the candidates who can reason and answer the debates with full knowledge and heart. now, i don't see ABS CBN sponsoring debates or airing debates that they have coverage
