Many had of late commented in this blog that PM DS Najib Razak should be replaced due to the perceived weaknesses of his administration.
I believe these commenters are pro-BN.
Pro-Pakatan commenters who came here normally would just bashed BN and calling its leaders names. They just want Anwar Ibrahim as PM...or Lim Guan Eng.
But does the Najib's administration is so flawed that it need to be replaced?
Is Najib really a bad man?
Okay, for instance, on the latest price hike issue, do you think Najib is so evil that he purposely caused the price of goods to go up so that the people suffer?
I honestly don't think so.
I feel that the government really need to cut down on spending in subsidies as all these while we are living in an artificial comfort zone. The country simply could not afford to continue that way.
I don't think Najib is doing what he is doing now so that his wife can use the rakyat money to buy a new Birkin handbag.
Those Rosmah's handbags, I believe, were bought using his own money. Najib is not exactly a poor man in the first place.
Najib really love his wife. If he has the money and want to buy his wife a handbag, then let him be lah. I can understand that.
Well, of course Najib need to trim down the spending on such things as paying for all those stupid consultants. I agree with that.
That, he needs to do as soon as possible. Otherwise, it will be difficult for even his most ardent supporters to defend him.
It will actually be a pity if Najib is to be replaced.
He is arguably the nicest PM Malaysia has ever had. Yes, he is even nicer than Tun Hussein Onn and Pak Lah. He is after all the one who get rid of the ISA and doing his best to liberalize the country.
He tried to be a PM for all.
Just the other day a Chinese DAP supporter forwarded me a Facebook posting by Singapore's Lee Hsien Loong on how he spend time with the family of a lady whose hand was crushed by a machine in a work related accident. She told me that Najib need to do more of such things.
I told her that the PM had done all that but people like her still want Anwar to replace him.
"He had done all he can to be a friend of the Chinese, yet they still spat in his face. Now the Malays want him out because they feel that he was being too friendly with the Chinese," I told her.
I still feel Najib is the best choice as our PM for now.
He is definitely nicer and more sincere that the likes of Anwar, Guan Eng and Hadi Awang put together.
I also think that he is a better leader than that of his potential replacements - TS Muhyiddin Yassin, DS Zahid Hamidi, DS Hishammuddin Hussein and DS Shafie Apdal.
Now, if only he can tighten up his ship a bit more. Be focused and he surely can do what he intended to do.
As for now, first and foremost, I feel that Najib needs to restore confidence among BN supporters that he could last the mile until GE14.
I wish him the best and hope that he will succeed.
