No matter if the cat is black or white, as long as it catches mice, it’s a good cat. But it must by no means be a Persian cat which only looks good – pleasant to the eye but useless!
不論是黑貓、白貓,只要會抓老鼠,都是好貓。但一定不能是波斯貓,不能只是好看而已,中看不中用!

James Soong Chu-yu (宋楚瑜), People-First Party (PFP, 親民黨) chairman and (potential) presidential candidate

KMT spokeswoman Lai Su-ju ((賴素如)) said that the Ma government’s achievements over the past three years in the fields of cross-strait relations, diplomacy and the economy were there for all to see. Song Chu-yu’s criticism was a far cry from the facts.
對此,國民黨發言人賴素如表示,三年來馬政府在兩岸、外交和經濟各方面政績有目共睹,宋楚瑜的批評與事實相距甚遠,社會自有公評。

Lai, indirectly quoted by the China Times online (中時電子報), with her reaction to what Soong may or may not have targeted at president Ma Ying-jeou (馬英九).

Soong Chu-yu said that politicians, even when talking in private, shouldn’t crack jokes, thus invoking inappropriate connotations among outsiders. He hoped that people wouldn’t read too much into it. He would pay more attention and choose his words more carefully in the future.
宋楚瑜表示,政治人物即便私下交談也不應戲謔以對,造成外界不當聯想,希望大家勿過度影射,今後更將以此警惕、謹慎發言。
