Is Abdullah Badawi getting weak?

Of late, I notice that Prime Minister Abdullah Badawi (Pak Lah) is somewhat loosing control of things. Even local daily The New Straits Times had beaten the gun more than once. One or two ministers were in a hurry to announce Cabinet decisions or actions to be taken which by nature of it's portfolio, would be done by the Prime Minister.
What is going on? Pak Lah's deputy and PM-in-waiting Najib Tun Razak is very quiet lately, Why? Could it be his political strategy?
On the international front, Pak Lah was also slow to react on matters concerning Islam and the Muslim community. As chairman of the Organisation of Islamic Countries (OIC), he should be more sensitive to global issues affecting the Muslim community and be bold enough to issue statements on behalf of the OIC.
It would be a different scenario if Dr Mahathir Mohamad is in charge.

***February 14***

If I could speak in any
language in heaven or
on earth but didn't love
others, I would only be
making meaningless noise
like a loud gong or a
clanging cymbal. If I
had the gift of prophecy,
and if I knew all the
mysteries of the future
and knew everything
about everything, but
didn't love others, what
good would I be? And
if I had the gift of faith
so that I could speak
to a mountain and make
it move, without love
I would be no good to
anybody. If I gave
everything I have to
the poor and even
sacrificed my body,
I could boast about it;
but if I didn't love others,
I would be of no value
whatsoever. Love is
patient and kind. Love
is not jealous or boastful
or proud or rude. Love
does not demand its
own way. Love is not
irritable, and it keeps
no record of when it
has been wronged.
It is never glad about
injustice but rejoices
whenever the truth
wins out. Love never
gives up, never loses
faith, is always hopeful,
and endures through
every circumstance.

May You Always
Experience This
Kind Of Love,
Dr. Howdy
