Yet Another Example Of How One “Double Talks” And Shoots Himself In The Foot…..
Posted by ErnieJean on August 10, 2008
Have you realised that our politicians may not be the brightest of the lot (well, “DDDUUUHHHH”!!), or for that matter, not bright at all, but one thing’s for certain, we can be “proud” of the fact that no other country’s politicians can “double-talk” like ’em and proceed to shoot themselves in their feet (or an alternative “foot in mouth” has happened before)

Adnan: Running a government is more than just sweet talk and pledges
BERA: Umno supreme council member Datuk Seri Adnan Yaakob has reminded PKR de facto leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim that it will not be easy to govern a country.
He added that managing a country was not about making unreal and empty promises and leaving out core development projects and plans for the people.
“It is not only about using profits made by Petronas simply to lower the present petrol price to RM2.
“It is also not about telling the whole nation simply that he will take over the Government on Sept 16,” he said in his speech before presenting land titles to 40 settlers at Felda Mayam land scheme yesterday.
Adnan, who is also Pahang Mentri Besar, said that to administer a country meant that one had to ensure the people are able to lead a good life and enjoy sufficient and sound public amenities.
He said Anwar spoke eloquently and could impress his listeners with his speeches but that was it.
“His talks and sweet promises are unsubstantial,” he said.
He said he hoped the public would be able to see the insensible plans Anwar had outlined and whether these plans would really benefit them in the long run.
Ok…..is it just me or shouldn’t the terribly apt advice be directed at a certain somebody who will probably be known in the future as “Father of (Redundant) Corridors”?
And then he went on to say……
On Felda Mayam facing frequent water problems, Adnan suggested that the settlers dig wells or use pumps as a temporary measure while the state government tried to iron out the matter.
He said land schemes in Pahang were established in rural areas and there were bound to be water problems, unlike those living in urban area.
Sweet sounding promises?
Excuse me but if I’m not mistaken, we’re supposed to be aiming for developed nation status in 12 years (and of course cows can fly), and this Menteri Besar expects taxpayers in his state to dig wells for water? And that is right after he mentioned about how the administrator of a government should provide sufficient and sound public amenities?!?!
Talk about “Double-Talk” here!!!!!
