It is understandable that supporters of Pakatan Rakyat were very sore and unhappy to what had happened in Perak. When something bad happen somebody must take the blame and it so happen that RPK chose to blame the three senior opposition leaders. RPK wants to wake up everyone, including umno/bn to the real matters of politics in Malaysia today. I am sure he will respond to the star report and provide his thoughts in Malaysia Today's blog after he is done with attending the court cases he is having now.
Whether he is right or wrong, many are still standing behind the three senior leaders, as per comments at blogs that highlighted his opinion.

PORT KLANG: Blogger Raja Petra Kamarudin has called for the resignations of three senior Opposition leaders for the loss of the Perak Pakatan Rakyat government to Barisan Nasional.
Pakatan de facto leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, DAP adviser Lim Kit Siang and PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang should resign and accept collective responsibility for the loss, he said at a Chap Goh Mei celebration at the Kuan Soon temple grounds in Pandamaran here.
When asked whether it was a leadership crisis, he said it was just bad leadership, with bad decisions and the three senior politicians were out of touch with the people on the ground.
“It is time for them to stop the blame game. Move aside and give the position to the younger generation that are more able.”
Malaysia politics are at a very crucial cross road that can lead either to a total chaos or a true two party system. The opposition still needs the experienced leaders to ensure the change that the rakyat wanted becomes a reality. Everyone knows that evil umno will try at anything to stop this from happening including the destruction of this country if necessary.
RPK indicates that PR senior leaders move aside and give the position to the younger generation that are more able. I agree with him on his statement but the time is not right at this moment. If you were to look at all the faces of the younger generation, you can see and fill that they are not ready to just take over the throne. They need time to be groomed and learn how to fend off evil umno/bn dirty plots and strategies at every directions thrown at them.
We cannot expect to win at every battle, we must expect to lose some but still able to stand tall and strong to fight another battle. We must focus on the big war, (while fighting the small battles) that is coming our way in the form of the 13th general election.
