finally, here comes Gilbert Teodoro

It was on May 11, 2009, during the ANC Leadership forum, when I realized that Defense Secretary Gilbert ” Gibo” Teodoro could be a good bet for the 2010 Presidential Election. He was straightforward and confident in answering all questions being thrown at him regarding all issues in all aspects of governance and shrug it off when being closely scrutinize because of his close association with the administration and Lakas-Kampi CMD matriarch President Gloria Arroyo. Yesterday, despite the snubbing  of the party’s  original members former Philippine President and Chairman Emeritus Fidel V. Ramos (FVR) along with former Speaker of the House and resigned President of Lakas CMD Jose de Venecia (JDV), Lakas-Kampi CMD has made it formal and declared Gibo as it’s standard bearer for the next year election. JDV even made a statement that the the merging of the two parties are still in questioned and that will give Gibo’s campaign a big problem. That should really be the least of Gibo’s worries because obviously, JDV is just making a scene and trying to ruin the party’s chosen one’s moment. The early proclamation will surely help the party lobby Gibo to harvest more supporters and voters. Noynoy Aquino, his cousin, and also running for the Presidential election, openly stated that Gibo would most probably be his formidable foe and will get most of the Ilocano’s votes because the Aquinos still has issues about the Hacienda Luisita land dispute.


Gilbert Cojuangco Teodoro has the most impressive resume. A Lear Jet rating in his Commercial Pilot’s License, attained a Bachelor’s Degree in Commerce from De La Salle University in 1984. In 1989, he completed his law studies at the University of the Philippines, where he was awarded the Dean’s Medal for Academic Excellence. In the same year,  he topped the Philippine Bar exams. He went to the Harvard Law School in Cambridge, Massachusetts for his Master of Laws and completed it in 1997. He was a congressman representing the First District of Tarlac province from 1998 to 2007 and was eventually appointed Secretary of the Department of National Defense in August 2007 at the age of 43, the youngest person to ever hold the position. He has always been considered one of the two honest cabinet members of the Arroyo government.

Gibo is not a back slacking or a baby kissing kind of candidate, he is pretty much cerebral and like to take things done right away, which made him very much respected by his colleagues. If there is anything that will probably hinder Gibo from getting the sympathy of the masses, it is his being in the shadow of the administration, and his possible running mate DILG Secretary Ronaldo Puno whom is not liked by a lot of people. Many even questions him, if he is elected, will he use his power to protect Arroyo from anomaly charges that allegedly she has committed during her term as the Chief Executive of our country? Former Senator Franklin Drilon is unsure that Gibo will even take note of E.O. 464. Though the administration’s party is a force to be reckon with, the machinery to make him a household name  is still yet to be tested. I suggest that Secretary Teodoro must roll his sleeves and really get down with the people of the C and D class because these people barely knows him and his capabilities. Among all presidentiables, he was the only one who is not afraid to voice out his support for charter change  which is one of the most controversial issues today and for that I admire him, he surely got the balls hehehe.

EXECUTIVE ORDER NO. 464

ENSURING OBSERVANCE OF THE PRINCIPLE OF SEPARATION OF POWERS, ADHERENCE TO THE RULE ON EXECUTIVE PRIVILEGE AND RESPECT FOR THE RIGHTS OF PUBLIC OFFICIALS APPEARING IN LEGISLATIVE INQUIRIES IN AID OF LEGISLATION UNDER THE CONSTITUTION, AND FOR OTHER PURPOSES

  1. Gibo is capabale and qualified no doubt but being with the administration that was hated so much by the people would be a blunder to him,why would i vote for the guy that being endorsed by the EVIL Gloria?

    • of all the presidentiables, Gibo is the only one who presents plans that makes some sense and the one i think most capable for presidency. i don’t really care if he’s associated w/ the administration or his plans w/ gloria, as long as he’s going to lead this country at least a step further higher than its state now.

      i voted gloria despite the fact that she lost some integrity at that time by running despite declaring not to run for re-election. she was the only presidentiable at that time that was most capable to run the country. and she did lead the philippines a step higher than its state during Erap’s administration.

      so it’s really not a problem for me if Gibo is associated w/ the administration w/c i think despite its negative image now, has done some good things in the country.

      so my vote presently remains w/ Gibo =)

      • i say AMEN to that🙂

      • agree. imagine how the Philippines would have weathered the international crisis if FPJ won? for all the accusations of wrongdoing hurled at GMA, i think it was providential that we had an economist for president, for under her leadership (kudos, too, to her economic advisers and to OFWs with their dollar remittances) we fared better than some first world countries during the past two years. she did start and finish a lot of infrastructure projects that I am sure will do the country good in the years to come. trouble is, media only sensationalizes the bad and keeps the good hidden in order to sow division among the populace, no doubt to suit their own agenda.

      • YOU SAID IT RIGHT, MY DEAR! LET’S PRAY FOR THE SURE AND LANDSLIDE VICTORY OF PRESIDENT GIBO TEODORO, OUR GUY, OUR BELOVED PRESIDENT! WE DON’T MIND IF HE IS IDENTIFIED WITH THE ADMINISTRATION! HE IS HIS OWN MAN! WE STRONGLY BELIEVE IN HIM! IT’S EITHER GIBO OR NONE AT ALL! LONG LIVE GIBO!

        SI GIBO LANG TALAGA ANG MAY KATUTURAN (SENSE) SA LAHAT NG MGA KANDIDATO!

  2. I’m seriously considering gibo as president

  3. Yes, you’re right. Gibo is not much of a talker but when he does, he talks sense and for that, he’s getting my vote🙂 I believe he’s the most capable and honest person to run this country.

    Manny Villar- Sipag at Tiyaga
    Gilbert Teodoro- Galing at Talino
    Noynoy Aquino- Ninoy at Cory

  4. mga kabayan, wala akong presidentiable na sasabihin sa inyo kung sino dapat ang iboto pero ang akin lang ay kung talagang nagising na kayo sa arroyo regime ay wag na wag nyong iboboto si gilbert teodoro! napakasimple lang eh, pag siya ang naging presidente at si gloria macapagal arroyo naman ay walang katalo talo sa lugar nya bilang congresswoman (kung buong bansa nga nadaya niya eh yun pa kayang isang distrito lang) ang gagawin lang nila ay ilalakad nila ang pagpalit ng gobyerno mula democratic to parliamentary at si gloria naman ang gagawing prime minister! imposibleng hindi backup-an ni teodoro ang hangarin ni gloria dahil sa laki ng kanyang utang na loob dito! pag nangyari na, ayun! si gloria na naman ang lider natin! napakasimple kaya magsigising na kayo! iboto nyo na kung sino ang gusto nyo iboto wag lang si gilbert teodoro!!! nawa’y magising na kayo at sana’y patnubayan tayong mga Pilipino ng Panginoon sa pagpili ng ihahalal sa darating na eleksyon 2010. May God bless us all!

    • @ brunok, eh tanong ko sayo, sino ba ang dapat iboto? kung lahat candidate para presidente ay walang matino sayo…..

      • @brunok: Kung gusto talaga ni gloria na maging prime minister di ba mas meron xang kapangyarihang gawin yon na presidente xa? Kahit na nga yang charter change di nya maisulong kahit she’s in favor of it. Yang mga sinasabing gagawing prime minister ni gibo si gloria that’s plain bs.

        Gibo is his own man. He knows how to think for himself and he won’t taint his and his father’s name, not to mention drag down his wife and son, just to favor one person. I know and I believe he will do the right thing.

        Find us an article, or any proof whatsoever na involved si Gibo of any scandal that would justify your claim.

        FYI, uulitin ko lang. He has always been considered one of the two honest cabinet members of the Arroyo government.

        Si erap ba iboboto mo? hekhek wag naman sana🙂

    • BRUNOK, parang kailangan mong magdasal para sa ating bansa. Sa tingin ko maling-mali ang linya ng pag-iisip mo… para mo na ring sinabi na kung masama ang Tatay mo ay MASAMA ka na rin! So, where is your logic, my dear Brunok?
      For me, it’s GIBO or none at all!

  5. sana’y manalo si gibo sa eleksyon dahil siya lang ang tunay na pag-asa ng ating bayan.. kailangan natin ng hindi corrupt at may paninindigan.. hindi natin kailangan ng kandidatong puro dada pero wala namang ginagawa.. sana’y maliwanagan ang mga nagbubulagbulagan.. huwag sana tayo masilaw sa kislap ng kasikatan. let’s judge the candidates based on their own merits.. si gibo ay hindi si gloria.. kung paanong ang anak ay hindi ang mga magulang niya..

    • dear gibo ako,

      ako rin GIBO! Wala ng iba! Alam mo kung bakit? Noong Bagyong Ondoy, sinabihan siyang mag-pose sa may rubber boat noong nagliligtas sila ng mga biktima. Hindi pumayag si Gibo. Ayaw niyang magpalitrato para lang makakuha ng media mileage. Mas importante sa kaniya ang pangmadaliang tulong sa mga nasalanta. O, di ba?… MAKATAO talaga siya?… at hindi lang pa-cute?… YAN ANG PANG-PRESIDENTE! kAY GIBO TAYO! IPAGDASAL natin siya na MANALO sa May 10, 2010! Ang ARAW NG TAGUMPAY! MABUHAY SI PRESIDENTE GIBO!

  6. Gibo is hands down the best of the lot. He is young, idealistic, a hard worker, competent, untainted, earnest, inspiring, and walks the talk.

    He is GMA’s candidate but it does not mean that he will be GMA’s lapdog when he becomes Chief Executive. He has shown his independence in making decisions in the wake of the Maguindanao massacre. This alone sets him apart from the other candidates.

    In my humble opinion, he would be the best deterrent against GMA’s possible ascent to become Prime Minister if Charter change succeeds. As President and chairman of Lakas-Kampi CMD, only Teodoro will have the balls, influence and power to keep GMA in place–something I am certain he will do. Since this is the biggest issue against him, he will not protect GMA if cases are filed against her when she steps down in 2010. Hindi niya isasakripisyo ang kanyang pagkapangulo at ang buong bansa para lang isalba si GMA. That would be political suicide.

    I hope people who are angry at GMA will not try to put a good man like Teodoro down because it will ultimately be the whole country’s loss. Mahalin naman natin ang ating bayan at huwag nating pairalin ang galit kay GMA para mangalap ng suporta sa ibang kandidatong hindi naman karapat-dapat.

    Please lang, if you want to get even with GMA, gather enough strong evidence against her, bring her to court, and let the legal process deal with her. Sa dami ng pera at resources ng opposition, makakapaproduce sila ng solid evidence na makakapagpakulong sa mag-asawang Arroyo, kung tunay ang mga bintang sa kanila.

  7. It’s our loss as a country if Gibo Teodoro will not win, wala ka nang makikitang ganyang tao na best qualified na maging presidente probably in a hundred years. He is a gem that we simply can’t let go. Tama na po ang mga haka-haka at paglilink sa kanya kay gloria…sa kasaysayan ng buong mundo, WALA pang presidente ang nagpadikta sa isang congressman lang (assuming aling gloria will win) – at imposibleng mangyari yan. Kung mahal talaga natin ang Pilipinas, iboboto natin ang taong karapatdapat MAMUNO (LEAD) – at hindi tayo magpapadala sa emosyon at mga sabi-sabi lang. Ako man ay disgusted sa mga moral issues ni gloria pero hindi ko isasakripisyo ang kinabukasan ng bansa natin dahil lang sa galit ako sa issues ng administrasyon na to. Si Gibo Teodoro ay hindi lang may galing, talino at experience sa pamumuno, isa rin syang napakarangal na tao, walang bahid ng kurapsyon at honest na tao. Kahit magresearch pa kayo kahit saan, wala kayong maririnig na nagnakaw sya sa bayan or any form of dishonesty – itanong nyo pa sa mga taga DND. Naiintindihan ko na dahil wala silang maibato kay Gibo, ang issue na lang ni gloria ang ibinabato nila…pero kung tunay na mahal natin ang Pilipinas, iboboto natin kung sinong dapat. Si Gibo Teodoro lang po.

  8. Dapat si MAR ROXAS ang dapat tumakbong Presidente ng Pilipinas…sya lang ang pag asa natin para lahat ng OFW ay makabalik na sa bansa..dahil alam ko na sya lang ang makapagbibigay ng magandang trabaho sa bansa natin…
    Pero si Mar Roxas ay naduwag sa pagtakbo ng Pilipinas…na nag give way kay Aquino na wala namang personality! mukhang Mongoloid nga eh!!

    Si Gibo sana kaso baka debate lang ang alam..di rin makakatulong yan..walang pa cute sa Malacanang….nakakalbo na sa ka-babate!!! este debate!! sorry..

    Si Gordon sana..kaso parang sinungaling sya at mayabang ang dating ..itanong nyo sya sa OLONGAPO!!! isa lang syang bading sa mundo!!

    KAYA Kay ERAP tayo!! tunay na PILIPINO!!! Erap TAYO!!!!!

    • naman! si erap? eh parang palagi nlng yang lasing eh! haha! in fairness A for effort sa mga forums. At least pumupunta xa. BUT grabe ang mga sagot talagang nkkabilib! I wonder… nakakaintindi ba talaga xa ng salitang pinoy?

      bwahahaha!
