So, what has the government achieved over the past six years? On the occasion of the sixth anniversary of Ma’s presidency, we can see that the campaign promises made back then were either merely sound bites or that the government has done the exact opposite of what it said it would do.
Seeing Ma during the KMT conference heap encouragement on Premier Jiang Yi-huah (江宜樺) once again goes to show that this president — with his personality flaws and his lack of leadership skills — and the disastrous administration that he leads, seem to have a very high opinion of themselves.
No wonder so many people are begging them to stop now.
