Mar Roxas’ reputation is safe from the public’s eye since somehow, they have kept it very private although undeniably, some knows the skeletons in his closet. But still, some things are really left here to be known, and maybe because their foulness were easily sensed as well.
Ever since, the Mar-Korina affair was made public, most Filipinos have raised their eyebrows. It’s not like an all-against-odd version again that struck the news but more on a politician-using-partner’s-fame again thingy for us, Filipinos, and until the day now, even after their marriage and honeymoon… numbers of detractors still arises.
But actually, the public eyes somehow shouldn’t lay pity over Korina at all. That sweet smiling TV anchor wasn’t a goody-goody package as she seems to be, and as she was renowned to be. Intellectually, she has shown enough after graduating from Miriam College and earning couple of awards from her field. But, that doesn’t make her any more excluded from the conviction of hurting someone, her subordinate, just because she has all the power to rule over anybody.
Nevertheless was the presence of cases against her and her negligent towards her housemaid’s SSS. A good and responsible media personnel is fully aware of the consequences to come his/her way whenever someone fail to do so, and also they were one of the most informed people in regards to this insurances and public benefits.
Although, cases against Korina have already been dismissed and some articles in the web were somehow deleted already, the issues still marked in the minds of the Filipinos and how a 42 year old housemaid was accused of thievery and was beaten up by her and her boyfriend in Makati when it was said that the said stolen bracelet pawned.
With this thing, still, we can’t call anybody saint enough despite all the glamour, the background, and the image. After all, everything is just a screenplay for the riches, and the ambitious ones.
Nararapat ba siyang tumayo bilang maybahay ng susunod na pangalawang pangulo
Mga paratang kay Korina
Sa mga nagdaang taon, sari-saring isyu na ang ibinato sa beteranang broadcaster na si Korina Sanchez. Ilan dito ang diumano’y pagmamaltrato niya sa kanyang mga katulong. Hindi man kapani-paniwala, paano nangyaring nagkaroon ng lakas ng loob ang kanyang mga kasambahay na magsampa ng reklamo laban sa kanya?
Isa na rito si Bernardita Inocencio, 42, dating kasambahay ni Korina. Inakusahan ng nasabing katulong ang journalist ng pambubugbog at hindi pagre-remit ng SSS contributions. Pinatunayan naman ito ng SSS sa inisyu nilang certification. Ayon sa SSS section head na si Charisse Castro, si Inocencio nga ay may coverage sa SSS para sa December 2000, ngunit nabayaran lamang iyon ni Sanchez noong January 3, 2002. Nagbayad lamang daw si Korina matapos ang magsampa ng kaso ang kampo ni Inocencio laban sa kanya, ayon sa abugado ng nagrereklamo na si Atty. Mel “Batas” Mauricio. Wala na rin daw halaga ang nasabing pagtugon dahil ang “krimen” ng hindi pagbabayad ay naisagawa na, dagdag pa ni Mauricio.
Maliban sa hindi pagbibigay ng SSS contributions, inakusahan din ni Inocencio si Sanchez at ang kanyang sinasabing kasintahan na si Paul Aquino ng pambubugbog. Nangyari daw ang pagmamaltrato sa condo unit ni Aquino kung saan nag-part time daw si Inocencio. Ayon sa katulong, sinaktan daw siya ng magkasintahan matapos siyang magpaalam na aalis na sa kanilang poder bilang kasambahay. Samantala, pinabulaanan naman ni Sanchez ang bintang at inakusahan naman si Inocencio ng pagnanakaw ng kanyang mamahaling bracelet.
Sa nasabing isyu, hindi talaga malalaman kung sino ang nagsasabi ng totoo, si Korina Sanchez ba na isang broadcaster at kilalang tao, o si Bernardita Inocencio na isang kasambahay na naghahangad lamang kumita para mabuhay ang pamilya? Hindi rin maituturing na kung anuman ang kinahinatnan ng imbestigasyon ay iyon din ang totoong nangyari. Kung walang magsasabi ng tapat at totoo, tanging Diyos lang ang nakakaalam noon. Bilang isang public figure, natural lamang na ipagtanggol ni Korina ang sarili laban sa mga hindi magagandang akusasyong idinidikit sa pangalan niya. Bilang isang katulong, ano naman ang mapapala ni Inocencio kung gumagawa nga lang siya ng ingay? Aanhin naman niya ang publicity? Hindi naman siya artista o pulitiko.
Mar Roxas bilang Bise Presidente
Kamakailan lamang ay ikinasal sina Korina Sanchez at Mar Roxas na isa sa mga kandidato sa pagkapangalawang pangulo. Idinaos pa nga ng dalawa ang proposal sa isang noon-time show. Ito ba ay upang pakiligin ang sambayanan? O parte na ito ng kanilang kampanya para sa nalalapit na eleksyon?
Sa kabilang banda, nararapat ba si Mar para kay Korina, at si Korina para kay Mar? Hindi kaya ang pagpapakasal niya kay Korina ang magdadawit sa kanyang pangalan sa mga eskandalong kinasasangkutan ng newscaster? Hindi yata magandang tingnan na ang susunod na pangalawang pangulo ay palaging nasasangkot sa mga gulo ng kanyang asawa. Malaki rin ang magiging impluwensiya ni Korina kay Roxas. Maaaring maapektuhan nito ang pamamalakad ng asawa sa kanyang bayan. Kung nananakit na si Sanchez, ano pa kaya kapag ang asawa niya ay naluklok na sa puwesto? Hindi malabong maging isa si Roxas sa mga pulitikong mapagsamantala sa kapangyarihan dulot ng kanyang asawa.
Nobody can deny that Filipinos have been traumatized having Mike Arroyo as the other half of our current president Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo. With the number of scams and issues of graph and corruption connected to the first family name ever since PGMA’s term started, especially the ever so famous and extravagant ZTE deal. It’s no joke to conclude that somehow, the person who sits more besides, eats more with, and sleeps more with the person in authority gain more than what we expected. Despite the fact, that right now, PGMA holds the highest position in our country, still it is undeniable that she’s still found herself submissive to his husband and his decision. And with this, somehow, the Filipino deserves to see if there’s a threat for another FG Arroyo. Although, unlike the Arroyo couples who’s issue was so natural and well-accepted, what’s with this aspirant couple was something less likely yet more different since the decision-maker was no other than the woman to her husband. And if you haven’t got enough idea who this power wife is, you may probably the list of 2009 wedding of the year or maybe some noontime shows ready to take full take full indulgence with wedding proposals of rich politicians to their famous celebrity partners. And I guess people should also check Twitter if ever to see their latest love cheesiness updates. Well, anyways, I won’t deprive the public knowing who this couple is… They’re no other than Vice President aspirant Mar Roxas and her wife Korina Sanchez bidding for the public’s votes to gain authority in the Philippines again. Some among us had already had bad vibes regarding Sanchez, who they tagged as the other “Imelda” and who for me was the “female Mike Arroyo”. Korina’s lifestyle was one of the most talked about issues when you’ve mentioned her name. Her precious choices of clothes and accessories are really astonishing. But do Filipinos are aware of Korina and her BMW issue. It has been said that Korina Sanchez failed to pay the amortization of her new car, and instead of fulfilling such, responsibilities, she even attack them abusing her privileges as a media personnel. Yet no evidence was kept around the web, and we must praise Sanchez for such an effort in deleting those negative feedbacks before Roxas run for candidacy. If people like this are capable of mandating some decisions to our country’s leader, then let’s not expect for progress. These types are political leeches and parasites who’ll soon take advantage of our country’s wealth. Mar Roxas maybe a so-so candidate yet still with his leech wife, I couldn’t imagine what will happen to Philippines if he will be elected.
