A renowned blogger saw something unexpected to former Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Director General Ronald ‘Bato’ Dela Rosa, who are also eyeing for a Senate seat this 2019 senatorial elections.
In his post, RJ ‘Thinking Pinoy’ Nieto, who is known to be critical and careful with choosing his candidates in the 2019 senatorial elections saw some characteristics on Bato that cannot be quickly gained by other senatorial hopefuls.
Nieto, who watched the launch of the Hugpong ng Pagbabago senatorial slate in Pampanga said that he’s confident that Dela Rosa got the ‘charisma’ that can make him win the election.
He saw how the crowd was captured by Dela Rosa’s charisma and made them entertained.
You can read Nieto’s post below:
“BATO HAS SOMETHING MOST OTHERS DON’T HAVE
After seeing Bato deliver his 5-minute speech earlier today sa launch ng Hugpong ng Pagbabago senatorial slate, I am now 150% certain that he possesses something that most other candidates do not have:
Ay guys, naloka ako kanina kasi he started with “Hindi na po ako magpapaligoy-ligoy. Ako po si Bato at iboto niyo ako sa senado.”
The crowd burst out laughing. They appreciated his candor and authenticity. Bato won their hearts sa first 5 seconds pa lang ng speech niya.
Very few people can do that.
For the rest of his speech, I can see the crowd smiling. They love the guy and they love listening to him.
Bato has won my stone cold heart. Hindi pa nga lang yung “my mind”. Pero that’s a pretty good start, I think.
Yung iba kasi, unang tingin ko pa lang, ekis na.
Bato, I think, will not lose in May 2019.”
Bato captured the attention of the Kapampangans by his speech.
He revealed that he courted a Kapampangan lady before, learning that kissing is the fastest way for the people of Pampanga to learn their language.
“Sabi nila ang pinakamabilis na paraan para matuto ka ng salitang Kapampangan ay makipag lips-to-lips ka palagi ng Kapampangan para mabilis ‘yung transfer ng kaalaman,” Dela Rosa said in jest.
“Eh, kaso binasted ako. Wala ‘di ako matuto (ng Kapampangan),” he added.
He also told the Kapampangans that he’s not rich like the other candidates, but he can assure that he’s gonna serve the people with clean heart.
