As far as Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi is concerned, the people still want him.
He is convinced Malaysians still want him to lead.
He said he has got THE mandate from the people to continue leading this beloved land of ours.
Abdullah isn't buying the crap that HE is responsible for the BN's disastrous performance.
“I am here. I am here. I am here. They speculate that I want to run away, I’ve resigned. Why should I resign?
“My Government has got a strong majority (although) not the two-thirds (majority), but very strong ... that is the stand of support.
“Why must I run away from my entrusted responsibilities?”
Abdullah said this after a 4-minute meeting with Terengganu Mentri Besar Datuk Ahmad Said at his office in Putrajaya yesterday.
Story here.I think he was responding to Dr Mahathir's call on Tuesday for him to step down "gracefully".
Dr M believes that Abdullah had no option but to step down in order to save Umno from further humiliation and destruction.
"Anyone else would have already resigned but (Abdullah) has no shame," said the former Prime Minister.
"I want him to resign" he told a crowd of more than 1,000 at a post-election forum organised by Umno supporters’ group, MyKMU.Net yesterday.
“This leader is the country’s only prime minister to ever come from an opposition state (Penang)..., " he said .
As they say, stick and stones may break Abdullah's bones but words can never hurt him.
You see, there are enough people around the PM to have convinced him that he had done a damn good job leading this country, that under him in the last 4 years, the poor and the underprivileged have had a better life and have enjoyed a better living standard.
The man believes that he is the best PM Malaysia ever had.
So...sorry Dr M, sorry Mukhriz, sorry the rest of Malaysians who voted for change. The man just aint listening.
In fact, he's been told that Dr M is the one responsible for BN's very very tragic performance.
And bloggers who were in cahoots with him.
Or did some people do a good job of closing Abdullah's eyes and covering his ears and .....
ANYWAY.. the man ain't going nowhere.
By the way, he is the Pakatan Rakyat's favourite PM. I was told by a leader in Pakatan that Abdullah should remain as PM.
