Our New Deal

4 days to go to UMNO general assembly. Blogs are brewing with juicy speculations, particularly on the return of one former prime minister and several former ministers back to government pay roll.

Not a bad move, considering Obama himself activated several senior aides during the Clinton administration while attempting to duplicate FDR's New Deal to revive the severely battered economy. FDR was touted to be the American Savior from the Great Depression, using methods such as buying up mortgages using government funds and reducing the monthly payments for consumers, allowing them to return to their homes.

More watchful eyes are on Dato' Seri Najib and his choice for cabinet ministers. Tan Sri Sanusi is rumored to become National Security Advisor, with Tun Dr Mahathir and Tun Daim in advisory roles.

Meanwhile, TDM was commenting on froggy Zaid Ibrahim's plea to the King to choose a better premier.
