Our PM is thinking now



-->
Like a cancer stricken patient who is able to survive the ravaging effects of the dreaded disease, Abdullah Badawi has also shown his abilities to withstand the waves of political lashings.
How did he manage to survive thus far and what are his abilities?
Let us look at him as a person and see how his body is able to absorb all the 'political blows'.
1)The skin
As I have mentioned before, one of the traits of the politician is to be thick-skinned.
The most painful 'shot’ for Abdullah Badawi is the incessant calls for his resignation by Dr. Mahathir, the very person who appointed him to be his successor.Subsequently, there have been calls for Abdullah Badawi to resign by Muhyiddin, Tengku Razaleigh and now even Mubarak, the association of former MPs and assemblymen.
To add salt to injury, Abdullah Badawi has been given many unkind nicknames by the blogging fraternity: sleeping beauty, Bedowi, Bodowi etc.
Do what you like and call what you want, he withstood all, most probably with some scratches on the skin.
2) The heart
Abdullah Badawi’s stay as PM is already laden with enough problems and out came the controversial remarks by Ahmad Ismail and the ISA arrests. These acts have truly put him under tremendous pressure which only a person with a strong heart can withstand. In the case of Ahmad Ismail, Abdullah Badawi must be seen not to condone such racist remarks and action must be taken against his party member who is an UMNO division head. As for the ISA arrests, it is a different game which Abdullah Badawi will keep it to his heart.
3) The eyes
You will be surprised that Abdullah Badawi has good eyesight, meaning, he has vision to see what is happening around him. Although, he has kept the ISA arrests close to his heart, it has been widely speculated that the order came from someone else. The Home Minister has denied that he gave the order and further said that the police acted on its own which points to the Ministry of Defense.
Having seen all these happenings, why do you think Abdullah Badawi would want to take over the Ministry of Defense? This is to prevent the DPM from running amok in the event Anwar Ibrahim succeeded in becoming the new PM. An amok Minister of Defense will certainly instigate more amok from the army and the police which will be a disaster for Malaysia with irreparable damages.
In other words, he sees something fishy and smells a rat with regards to the ISA arrests. Well, he also has a good nose too!
4) The brain
This is the critical part as the brain controls all the functions of the body.
I think by now Abdullah Badawi must be feeling dizzy from the constant bouts of vertigo. I believe Abdullah Badawi must have realized by now that all his political enemies would want to see him politically dead: from UMNO who will back stabbed and the opposition who will proffer a graceful transfer of power. He needs to strike a balance between resigning gracefully and fighting for his political survival vehemently and which is not easy, hence the vertigo. If he chooses the former, that will be good for the country while the later will spell national and economic disaster for all. As such, under such circumstances, it is best to leave him alone to let him think and make his moves.
Since Abdullah Badawi is the very one who freed Anwar from jail, I pray that he will resign gracefully and transfer the premiership to Anwar, whom he once 'loved' than to someone who betrayed him.The clamor for change is imminent.At least the people will remember Abdullah Badawi's premiership as the Father of Graciousness.
Let us give Anwar Ibrahim a chance and in the event that he failed to perform as promised, he will be removed by the people through the ballots.This, I can promised.

Rosmah Bakal Perdana Menteri Malaysia? – Bahagian Satu: Belanja Lumayan, Anak Suami Tak Dilayan

Sebelum rakyat dan ahli-ahli UMNO memberi sokongan kepada Dato' Seri Najib Tun Razak sebagai Presiden Parti dan Perdana Menteri negara, wajarlah tingkahlaku dan dosa anak Perdana Menteri kedua Malaysia ini diselidiki sepenuhnya. Tolak ketepi dahulu kebarangkalian pengbabitannya dengan pembunuhan ngeri Altantuya Sharibuu yang mengaibkan kerajaan Malaysia di mata dunia. Imbasan ringkas sejarah busuk Najib dan isterinya Rosmah sudah cukup untuk mengajar kita betapa bahaya parti dan negara jatuh ke tangan gandingan suami-isteri (atau lebih sesuai, ISTERI-suami) ini.

Belum sempat keperitan hati keluarga mangsa-mangsa Helikopter Nuri diubati, kronisme dan nepotisme Najib-Rosmah terserlah dengan penggantian Nuri dengan Eurocopter, meskipun ia merupakan model paling mahal sejauh 25% dan tidak diuji medan perang. Mengapa Najib sewaktu menjadi Menteri Pertahanan sekian lama enggan memeterai perjanjian untuk Sikorsky Blackhawk yang jauh lebih murah dan mempunyai rekod cemerlang di zon-zon perang?

Jawapannya datang dalam bentuk seorang adik bernama Nazim Razak yang muncul berkecimpung dalam isu-isu pertahanan negara sungguhpun merupakan seorang arkitek. Dengan rangkaian luasnya dengan pencipta-pencipta Eurocopter, Nazimlah sebenarnya yang menandatangani perjanjian Eurocopter sekaligus meraih komisen besar sewaktu rakyat Malaysia sibuk memikirkan kos sara hidup yang kian meningkat.

Yang cukup membimbangkan kita, sebenarnya bukan Najib yang berkomplot langsung dengan adiknya Nazim dalam hal Eurocopter ini. Tetapi isterinya Rosmah, yang berkelakuan seperti wanita sihir atau "witch" dalam cerita kanak-kanak Inggeris! Rosmah cukup bijak; wanita durjana ini menghabiskan wang yang diberi Nazim, untuk bersuka ria di London. Siapa tak kenal Rosmah dan perangai borosnya itu di negara perantauan. Dalam satu kes, cukai-tambah-nilai sahaja dilaporkan oleh penguatkuasa di England sebanyak 50, 000 pound (sekitar RM350 000)! Jika cukainya yang tak sampai 20% pun sudah bernilai RM350 ribu bayangkanlah berapa tinggi nilai sebenar perbelanjaannya.

Tak cukup lagi dengan keborosan di kedai-kedai mewah di London, Rosmah juga menghabiskan RM 500 ribu untuk pembedahan plastik dan botox di London tahun lepas. Jika tak percaya, lihat sajalah wajah wanita sihir itu dulu dan sekarang; mustahil cukup tempe di Malaysia ini!

Mungkin sikap Rosmah ini tidaklah memeranjatkan, jika kita lihat sejarahnya yang lampau. Sudahlah mencuri suami orang (Najib pada awalnya berkahwin dengan Tunku Puteri), Rosmah cuba sedaya upaya menghalang Najib untuk menghadiri majlis akad nikah anaknya sewaktu bersama Tunku Puteri, Nizar Najib bersama anak usahawan mahsyur dan bekas Exco Wanita UMNO Malaysia Dato' Maznah Hamid. Kuatnya pengaruh Rosmah ke atas suaminya, Najib hampir-hampir akur dengan saranan Rosmah untuk tidak ke majlis tersebut.

Setakat ini sahaja bahagian satu siri Rosmah Bakal Perdana Menteri Malaysia. Tiga isu yang dikupas setakat ini:

1) Perjanjian kronisme Eurocopter yang menguntungkan Rosmah
2) Perbelanjaan lumayan Rosmah di London (wang rakyat!!)
3) "Queen Control" hinggakan perkahwinan anak sah Najib pun tidak direstui
