When the going gets tough, the tough gets going.
The "tough" is not Anwar, it's Raja Petra, who had from the very beginning says he is prepared to face Anwar.
You can see the sheepish grin on Anwar's face when he tried to avoid the controversy surrounding his demand for Wikileaks to drop Raja Petra from the forum and of him, subsequently, being called a chicken by Raja Petra.
Raja Petra stripped naked his hypocrisy and falsehood.Anwar deemed himself so powerful, unconsciously, he already behaving worse than the devil he wanted to get rid off to bring more freedom to this country.
Though, I hate to use this somewhat idiotic American phrase which is gaining popularity among Malaysian politicians and writers such as he did not "WALK THE TALK", or "WALK THE WALK", or "TALK THE TALK". What's wrong with the original and proper English version of "TALK IS CHEAP" or "ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER THEN WORDS", or "PRACTICE WHAT YOU PREACH"
I prefer the one in Malay, sounds more euphonious and appropriate "CAKAP TAK SERUPA BIKIN"
What did he do? As versatile as a chameleon he quickly changed colour to suit his surroundings, out of the blue, asking Najib to be included in a debate on the Wikileaks sponsored forum.
His mistake of demanding the exclusion of Raja Petra sank his big fat bullshit about making Malaysia "land of the free" The abrupt turnaround is definitely his attempt to try to "tutup malu" by diverting attention.The man doesn't have a single grain of sincerity and honesty in him.In the first place, Najib was never invited, why should he bring Najib into the picture now.
This is the kind of cunningness Anwar possessed.
Unfortunately, to scatterbrained Malaysians he is right, he is the hero, the saviour, the infallible and the man who is going to save Malaysia from clutches of evils.
Anwar is unsuitable to be leading this nation, a person who can tell one story to one community and a different story to another community.
I must admit he is a good orator that can impress the uninitiated.If you care to look deeper and analyse his actions and speeches you would be surprise how inconsistent and contradictory the man is.
He had never impressed me from the day he became active in UMNO when his political speeches were full of bombastic Malay words I have never heard of before.His earlier speeches were designed to impress rather than for want of delivering the substance.
Anwar loves the world stage where he can show off his oratory articulation and show the whole wide world his chamelonic skills.
A picture speaks a thousand words.Only in Malaysia where leaders can shake your hand and look the other way.Most Malaysians don't mind this kind of rudeness, my grandfather would have flogged you to death.
It is Najib prerogative to participate or not.Political debate has never been a tradition in Malaysia.Why now!
A good orator does not necessary make a good leader.
As an employer before, I have met those who excel at interviews just because they can talk better but turned out to be pretty useless on the job.
Don't judge a book by its cover, it's the inside pages that matter.
