What is Pacquiao thinking???

I can't help but be disappointed with Pacquiao's intent to run for a congressional seat, what the heck is he thinking? I can now see the ear-to-ear grin of his so-called political advisers who for sure have their own political agenda behind their prodding for Pacquiao to join the dirty political ring. It was quite a relief when he expressed he was backing out from his political bid, but then again, he changed his mind (i thought only women change their minds a lot) and decided to push through with his bid to get elected. What a ....???

I am from Gen San and I share the same sentiment with you.. People of Gen San know the manipulative people around him - we know he's being dictated like a dummy, brainwashed that is... We know he's got great intentions for his people but I guess he's just an easy pick for the supposedly-highly-educated guys in politics... He's being used to sack out popularity among the masses... I just hope he gets enlightened in the remaining days.. B-(

Oh thank God here's one from Gen San, I beg you and all the people from Gen San, if you don't want Pacquiao to go far down the drain with all his political ambitions or rather the ambition of those behind his running, then please don't vote for him, don't put him where he doesn't belong. The Cebuanos loved him until recently when he announced his candidacy, it was really booo worthy! I mean we all know what he is good at and politics is never in the picture. Maybe showbiz and having an album would be acceptable but POLITICS? NO WAY?

Pacquiao's decision to run for congressman is a joke. Was he really thinking that he can help his countrymen if he is in office? With so many corrupt politicians in the Phil...nobody can't remember any promises they made after they are elected to the office. Manny Pacquiao should stick to what he is good at..boxing. Well, what can you say...anything goes in the Philippine politics.

Yep, you're right, I just wished Manny Pacquiao is a mylot user so he'd be able to read what the people has to say about his candidacy. Philippine politics is definitely a circus,however, a circus that never amuses its people but rather only brings suffering to the majority stockholders of the country, which obviously us the Filipino people.

He's going to win, I can feel it. But let's not get to that yet. I think the possibility crossed a lot of people's minds when they saw Atienza and Pacquiao during one of his latter victory parades. I think people would have recognized the possibility of political big names trying to urge Pacquiao to run for a government position. He's at the peak of his popularity. These big names are going old, and they need star power to boost their own images. It's not hard to take advantage of Pacquiao's popularity for their own gain, not at all! All they have to do is endorse and promote Pacquiao to the people (as if Manny really needed it), make it appear to the boxer that he owes them one, and when the time comes, "suggest" running for position. What then? A puppet who would rather read and vote on more "suggestions" than think them up himself appears every congress session. How would he ever get the time to box again? Or worse yet, how would he ever get the time to serve the people who elected him to office?
