Prime Minister Najib Razak is nobody's clone!


Mahathir...cut Najib some slack okay!


Just to be fair to Prime Minister Najib Razak, Tun Mahathir Mohamad scathing criticism on Najib's  administration might have come at an awkward moments when the country is in a state of mourning over the disappearance of our national carrier with hundreds on board and the shooting down of another one also with hundreds on board perished.
It was an unfair attack on Najib especially when the country is in a spot of a bother with the Selangor state government political crisis.
For the record, while Malaysia is under an international microscope Najib while on "holidays" had to do a series of careful and private meeting with all the many actors involved in the downing of our MH17, yes from the unruly separatist, hostile and semi hostile political leaders vis-a-vis the retraction of our Malaysian remains. 
Now let us get into the right and correct perspective here in regard to Mahathir attacks and criticisms on Najib and his government.
Najib is doing well, and trying his best. The economy is proof of his policies' effectiveness, for example 6.5 percent growth in second quarter is beyond expectations, yes beyond what even Mahathir expected.
Inflation is very low, a lot of people still are making ends meet in other words unemployment is also very low. Selangor under Pakatan is in shambles in comparison - now that is bad and but instead Tun should have continue whacking Anwar for failing the Selangor people (including Mahathir himself since he is resident of The Mines in Sri Kembangan).
Under Najib (and Mahahtir), Petronas is making billions. Mahathir  is now chairman of Proton and his son Mukhriz is Menteri Besar of Kedah. 
Now consider this, under Pak Lah Mahathir had to quit Umno, Mukhriz was sidelined, and Mahahtir's people were isolated. Now Syed Mokhtar can even own his own newspaper.
On Mahathir's son Mukhriz, he is on top of Umno hierachy now and a Mentri Besar of Kedah.
Najib is no clone, just as he is not expected to fill Mahahtir's over sized shoes. What our Najib needs is space for him to continue his good work. Mahathir said he was upset about Najib's decision to get rid of the ISA. But history will prove that this  is Najib's defining move. Just as Mahathir was to release hundreds of ISA detainees when he became PM in 1981.
To place us in a correct perspective again, when Mahathir was in power for 22 years he did not tolerate dissent and criticism, he will throw you in the slammer if you misbehave.
When he was in power he ruled with iron fist, no dissent was allowed.  
The Malay, Chinese, Indian, Iban, and Kadazan and others feared him. Mahathir was like a spoiled child who will always get with his rantings.
Personally under his 22 years of rule I am not even sure he was even consolidating the Malays' agenda.
My observation was under his rule it was more of a self-aggrandisement.  He made enemies big time.
Unlike him, Najib as I know him, and of what many people know of his is a magnanimous and accommodating person. I have no doubt this country is safe under him, it is just that he is his own person and nobody's clone! BTW I like what Bujai wrote in Just Read here, refreshing.... !
As for Najib, just cut him some slack!

Kritik Najib boleh ambik tapi tengok masa lah
Najib has been taking a lot from others but who is Mahathir now to push him when the country is in a somewhat disarray? If Mahahtir had been in power now do you know how many people will be in jail? Including Anwar Ibrahim!? But Najib allows dissent and allows the law to take its due course!

The ungrateful Chinese are a pedigree o bastards when their men came from China without their families.. just like how the working Indians we see in mamak shops today. So they needed brothel women all imported whores cause no locals would touch these unwanted "apeks".. and thus we have today ungrateful Chinese bastards..simple to understand them when we know of their true origins.

Yet another Chinese bastard.

Tun's withdrawal of support for Najib comes after Najib failed to take effective but HARSH decisions.

As a leader Najib is OVERLY concerned with being NICE, he is seen bending backwards to please everyone.

And his niceness gives the green light to abuse for personal gains.

There are many long expired deadwood in his cabinet who are still enjoying the undeserved benefits.

During Tun's era, everyone must perform subject to tangible results.

Only Najib allows 'I love PM' banners and then he was shocked by the chinese tsunami, even after the lunar new year advertisement where Najib wore the red samfu clasping his palms chinese style.

Rosmah has to be relegated to the silent background, too obviously enjoying the limelight.

'......But history will prove that this is Najib's defining move.....'

Oh yeah? Bolehkah anda huraikan kenapakah sekarang semakin menjadi jadi provokasi yang begitu sensitive terutamanya mengenai agama Islam, hak istimewa orang Melayu, raja raja Melayu dsb?

Kalau terus dibiarkan tidak mustahil tragedy 13 May 2 akan berlaku!

Bacalah komen komen yang membincangkan prestasi DSN dalam blog blog lain yang membicarakannya.

Boleh dikatakan lebih 90% mengkritik pedas cara DSN mentadbir!

Mungkin polisi DSN dalam ekonomi berjaya. Tapi boleh kah ekonomi terus berkembang kalau keresahan politik dan social terus berlaku?

Teguran TDM mengenai DSN terlalu 'memanjakan' kaum tertentu amat benar sekali.

Janji juta juta untuk sekolah SRJK (C), bawa Psy ke Penang untuk menghibur Cinabeng, beri jamuan lagi.

Tapi apa jawapan mereka? Lebih 90% mengundi DAP.

Melayu Islam yang dipinggirkan DSN kerana terlalu dahagakan undi Cina yang menyelamatkan 'jubor' DSN untuk terus tinggal di Putrajaya!

Yea he may be a nice guy but Prime Ministers do not necessarily have to be accomodating on all occasions ... he has instead to be just in all cases and act with wisdom and have a good sense of what is right and proper - ie. have adab.

Saya tersangat setuju dgn pendapat Tun. Najib is too soft... we Malays selalu makan hati dgn perangai biadap Cina yg tidak diambil tindakan juga dengan perangai evangelista yang tak habis2 nak sondol ugama Islam. Biarlah Najib dikritik daripada negara kita terus menerus slide into a cold civil war antara races & religious faith. Malaysians need to be reeducated in menjaga sensitivities & menghormati antara kaum & ugama... & the pre-requisite is a strong, firm and committed leader.

There are only 4 years to GE14 left. Now is the best time to clean house. You need 2 years to get the house in order and time for the next round of assaults by PKR and DAP, who have been making their moves early. Meanwhile, what has UMNO Selangor been doing? Sleeping at the wheel, happy to be Opposition.

No fight left in them. No strategy to retake the State. This is Najib's failure. Today Selangor, tomorrow Malaysia.
