Argentine president criticizes lack of political leadership to present alternative model

Reacting to Thursday massive protest against the government which convened hundreds of thousands of Argentines in the country and overseas, President Cristina Fernandez said that the real problem is the lack of a political leadership that can represent an alternative model to that which has been so successful for the majority of Argentines.

Cristina Fernandez recovering the political initiative

Speaking on Friday from Government House at the launching of a financial program in support of Buenos Aires province municipalities, the president strongly defended the current ‘development and inclusion’ model implemented since 2003 and said she would not change her ideals and policies.

“The true problem is the lack of a political leadership which can represent an alternative model; but we can’t be responsible for that. We believe in the one we have, let to others who don’t believe in our model to build their own”, said Cristina Fernandez.

“Ours is an inclusion model, even for those who disagree and complain about the inclusion of others”, she added claiming that the universal family allowance per child ‘has upset’ those who use to exploit staff such was the case with the domestic service and the migrant workers.

“They are upset with the universal family allowance per child because before they could contract for a few pesos, but now they have a floor which doesn’t allow them to exploit labour, and I’m proud of belonging to a government which helped lower the levels of exploitation”, underlined the Argentine leader.

Further on she admitted that her government makes “many mistakes”, but “I can assure you that this president and her ministers work 24 hours a day”.

“I’m only asking Argentines to help me to build a better Argentina; I’m doing my best, all my effort, more I don’t have. Honestly these are the neurones I have, the time I have and they are all on the table, as I did my whole life and without complaining”, continued CFK.

However, “I’m not victimizing myself; I hate those who victimize themselves, because nobody forced me to be here, and if I’m here at the presidential chair it is because I wanted to be president”.

The president also made a reference to the Argentine frigate impounded and retained in Ghana and said she was hurt, deeply hurt and disappointed that “there are Argentines who are on the side of the vulture funds”.

“My government is temporary, but the motherland where we live is permanent. So when one sees these things (support of vulture funds) one asks what is happening with this cultural domination”.

But she immediately continued recalling that “this is the president who most money invested in ARA Libertad, and I can assure you this government is going to recover her”.

She isn't victimising herself because of course Argentina is never the victim, never says people attack them, never does anything wrong then says it was someone elses fault, no no no.
Was this speech at a press conference or in her usual big brother announcements to the state? Oh yeah, i forgot, she doesn't give press conferences because journalists are uncivilsed. Right.

This web site first should write leastwise article titles correctly.

this title should be;
” Argentine President criticizes the lack of alternative political leaderhip to present model(leadership). ”

these protest are routine/sport for Argentina
it will be forgotten and will be passing to next other protests.

this is a different culture which is abstruse and unconventional especially for English origin countries who have never elected freely their head of state and have no any idea how these systems run.

i didn't read the article and comments becouse i disapprove in person to discuss them with very outer mouths.

@11
never had a freely elected head of state? are you talking about the queen? the queen has zero power. Our prime minister makes the decisions, and even though he wouldnt be my personal choice, last time i checked there was definitely an election.
And living in a country where the government does' not spend millions of taxpayers money on building up hate for the only media group who speaks out against them, building up hate for the falklanders, for repsol, the yanquis, the west, the middle class etcetc but instead on fuelling growth and productivity....better and more sustainable for sure. Argentina is becoming more and more 'us and them' - and full of hate. Great achievement cristina.
Can you not see that your 'model' is failing? Are you blind? look out of your window. crime inflation, corruption, failing industry... this was not the argentina of 4 years ago.I admire your loyalty to your dear leader but eventually Argentina will have to start addressing the problems that are building up. What do you think argentina will be like in 10 years if this 'model' (read - poorly thought out experiment) continues? It makes me sad to think.
And how LOW of Cristina to accuse all the protesters of campaigning against the family allowance. Similar policies are standard in any developed country. But any sane administration also has policies to encourage job growth, instead of making people dependent on handouts. Ask 9 out of 10 people and they will say they would prefer to work and accept these handouts, funding for which is vanishing by the day. Shame theres no productive jobs going cos all the businesses are scared off and people have to resort to crime instead.

The replacement of professional British Combat troops in occupied Malvinas by Dad’s Army troops…

Anyhow; I think this is a wise first move from London…..:
First move….: Dad’s Army to the Islands……

Second move…: Transplanting military pensioners (as in the 1850’s) , embedding them Islands with a loyalist population who has the skills and experience to defend Her Majesty’s supreme rights against any uppity colonial Kelper.

Third move….: Invigorate and revitalize the vibrant social fabric of them Islands and rejuvenate its aging population by establishing a re-convalescence center for all those young crippled, maimed and limbless veterans from Britain’s last many inglorious wars.

@20 In Argentina maybe, in other countries, journalists do not fear repercussions from the government if they express their opinions. Obviously everyones views are subjective, but being able to say those views, whether they are pro or anti, is part of a free press.

Any administration which has that many people taking to the streets to protest against it can not be thought of as doing a good job can it? I mean, a government is there to serve EVERYONE, and while not everyone can be happy all of the time, to have 1mn people so unhappy that they take to the streets, is a sign of a failed regime.

yeah, the only people there are the millionaires, right? Surely Cristina should be there by that argument.
Those protesting are not the middle class workers who are striving to save abit of money, but cant do that in pesos as the value drops every day with the governments inflation lies?
I agree inequality in Argentina needs to be tackled. Maybe sorting out your tax system would help? instead of stealing land and resources, bankrupting and expropriating the businesses which are necessary for long term growth, forcing the most productive to leave the country in search of opportunities and breeding hatred of anyone who thinks differently?
Argentina used to be my favorite country on the face of the planet. Now theres so much hate, so much anger. Its completely polarised, and not a pleasant place to be anymore.

I never said that, I stated that lots of them are common folks airing discomfort.
Mainly insecurity.
And insecurity can be battled on two fronts. 1 by increasing the police and decreasing the freedom of the people, and 2 by addressing the poverty.
Number 1 has been tried and tested many places globally and tends to lead to overcrowded jails, not reducing crime a bit.

Of course the oligarchy will cry, nobody expects them to drop their standard of living by own free will.

@Guzz
and why do you think insecurity is growing? Because poverty is NOT being addressed! It hasnt decreased since 2008 at all, stuck stubbornly at around 21%, despite the lies Cristina spouts about it falling to 6% (you just need to look out your window to know that isnt the case)
You know the best way to tackle poverty and in turn, insecurity?
You create jobs. you invest in creating a skilled workforce, through education, through training, through providing opportunities. You form an environment where businesses and entrepreneurship can grow and prosper (stable currency, low risk, respect for laws, property rights...) You build relationships based on transparency, you gain respect through cooperation within the international community. You produce something that is of value to the world, which increases wealth and prosperity. and if the wealth goes disproportionately to the richer in society, you implement taxes in a transparent and non-corrupt way, and you provide a social safety net for the weakest.
You cant provide a social safety net if businesses are failing, you have such low tax income as evasion is easier than compliance. you cant build fruitful relationships internationally if you are the world's laughing stock, and if your president says she wont pay back her debts, while simultaneously begging for foreign investment in total desperation. The height of hypocracy.

I assume it is not the country where I live i.e.Argentina, where inflation soars, crime is rife (robberies and killings on a daily basis), corruption is at its highest level even worse than in the Menem era), the country has turned into a drug traffic haven, citizens and journalist who criticizes the Governments policies get publicly slammed by Cristina in her epic national broadcasts and many have the Afip visiting them the very next day, and people who protest peacefully against these issues are automatically tagged by Cristina´s cronies and supporters as posh upper class citizens (you called them oligarchs) who work in this country and pay their taxes, while corrupt politicians like Bodou make a fortune with our money? Cristina increased her wealth by 931% over the last 8 years when Nestor and she have been ruling the country...If you live in Argentina, may I ask you what you do for a living?

What's the “3rd world”?

What? you want an Geography lesson now? Well, OK if you want.... The 3rd World would be considered those that have not yet fully developed economically or socially ( so you could count Argentina among them ) ..............

But hey there you go, that's just my take on it. If you are a Thinker then PLEASE, PLEASE explain the two statements below ( if you can!!! )

Griesa's comments came in response to remarks by Argentine President Cristina Fernandez, who said the country would not pay “one dollar to the 'vulture funds'.”

But she immediately continued recalling that “this is the president who most money invested in ARA Libertad, and I can assure you this government is going to recover her”.

The only way I can explain them is that

1/ this woman doesn't know what she is saying from one moment to the next

or

2/ She really is a mad B*tch!!!!

I imagine that normally these healthy products are exported to pad the coffers of the government rather than help the people of this country stay healthy....sad...today I am making a blueberry pie!!!

It's an interesting take on the motivation of those going out on the street to suggest that they are protesting about not being able to get cheap domestic labour. I sympathise, I really do. Here in the UK it's absolutely impossible to get anyone to do anything for less than the minimum wage plus National Insurance contribution - unless one pays cash of course but that creates all sorts of difficulties with HM Revenue and Customs. For a while those Poles and Liths were the answer but even they have cottoned on now. Still, I wonder if the pots and pans in use on the streets the other day were clean or dirty. We should be told so we can make up our own mind on whether or not the supply of domestic servants in Argentina has dried up (or should that be washed and dried up?).

@7 Was that it then? Executive Council approved the immediate investigation of the legal requirements and consequences of the creation of a Port Authority in the Falkland Islands and further investigation of the Joint Venture led funding model with the private sector as a potential long-term strategy for funding port infrastructure? And you think that stopped all subsequent mentions of the Falkland Islands by the President of Argentina do you? Uhm, equally interesting.

What part of the margna carta and later versions of it have you not read? Oh i get it you haven't read any the original or later version. Therefore you don't know what your talking about. The Queen became head of state by lineage i.e. her ancestors were appointed Head of State by the people when the magna carta was first signed by King John whom was appointed the first head of state.

Now there has been debates recently about whether to keep the monacrchey or not. Why do you think those debates are allowed, if the queen was not a servant of the people and subject to the peoples rule? Simple, its because we the people have the right to take away her appointment of head of state as and when we choose, which by doing so would end the monarcy.

Also you have alot to thank us for too. Because if it wasn't for the magna carta, democracy and freedoms we have today would not exist and we would all be the subjects of despot rulers, and dictator. Which you argentines know all about, don't you!

It was Nestor that defaulted, not her.Even though she likely supported it. He gambled SO wrong. He gambled on margin, and now the challenge is TWICE as big.

And, the Argentines usually have a new currency every 20. She gave herself too much credit, but she shouldn't take so much blame.

@96 Tipsy - Comparing french history with british/english history is no comparison!

Britain/England has been a democracy for almost 800 years. The first elected parliment being De Montfort's Parliament in 1265!

Noe France on the other hand was an absolute monarcy uptil 1792 - 3 years after the start of the french revolution!

As for the comparison of both countries history in the last 2 hundred years - Well fpr france you have - Nepoleon, german invasion in WWI, German conquest and occupation in WW2 and more recently strong supporters of an EU wide STATE, run by unelected officials.

FOr Britain we have Beat Nepoleon, Helped the virtually won WW1 for you even though it wasn't really our fight as the germans weren't invading us, help along with the americans, and other allies to liberate Franch in WW2 (Giving the french their democracy and freedom back! and now are position ourselves to stick the fingers up at the unelected EU officials and EU states that want to create 1 EU super state, in order to protect not just british sovereignty, but our very way of live and democratic society along with the freedoms that come with it. As i said, we rule the queen and the politicians here in the UK so their is no way we will give up or freedom and rule over this country so that unelected EU officials can stick their noses into our daily lives and tell us want we can and can't do and tax us to high heaven.

Now do you really want to carry on comparing the democratic histroy of Britain/England with that of France's. Personally as france has only been a democarcy for only just 220 years compared to 800 years here in britain. Youd be pretty foolish to even contemplate making such comprasion in the first place.

Though its interesting how you only wanted to compare the last 200 years and not the last 800 years, but then hardly surprising since franch only has 220 years of democracy!!

The Interregnum between the execution of Charles I (1649) and the Restoration of Charles II (1660) were years when Britain was anything but a democracy, the country being a military dictatorship controlled by the army.”

As for this statement - “All societies have been democrat at the same time non democrat.” So all countries in the world are democracy then even if they are communism, which is a non democractic country - jesus your logic is flawed!

And for this statement - “You can not talk about ” democracy “” becouse you didn't use your democratic rights on British Iraq/Afghanistan military operations as making in a referandum for inquiry and decision making.” I think you will find the policitians who represent their own local areas own local population, voted in parliment in favour of it. When we vote people into parliment they represent us for the full term until we vote someone else in during the next election. Thats how democracy works idiot. We have the power to call on the government by petitioning them if we are not happy with what they are doing.

@138 - Point is it was elected, thats is democracy - So what about the years between 1649 -1680 those were the years of civil war between the royalists and Parliamentarians, parliment was still in control of the country, though people were split between supporting the king or parliment, but parliment won in the end and therefore so did democracy. So your point is kind of mute.

Damn right. Between that misunderstanding and your correction, you raise a good point. It is, however, a point that is lost on those who live in flawed deomcracies based on thing but populism and theft.

Did Galtieri offer the Argentine people a referendum on starting a war which could only ever have ended in a hilariously humiliating defeat for the Argentine slave army? Yes you can claim that the evil junta didn't express the will of the people BUT every single action your (supposedly democratic) governments have taken since the 1983 have shown your support for their genocidal agenda AND the whole world has seen some hilarious footage of the Argentine people turning out in their tens of thousands to support the VIOLENT AND MURDEROUS SUBJUGATION OF A FEW THOUSAND PEACEFUL ISLANDERS. Where was your moral objection to war, violence and subjugation then?

Even 29 years after the fall of the Military Junta you still host nationalist rallies and mint commemorative coinage celebrating your GLORIOUS VICTORY OF 14000 CONSCRIPTS OVER 2000 INNOCENT COLONISTS AND 80 ROYAL MARINES before 1200 special forces kicked your heads in.

So, you want to complain that a million or more protesting in London against the Iraq war didn't bring down a government? We have since used democracy to do away with that government and the Iraq war is done with. Maybe 30 years from now Argentina will grow up and treat the falklands with the same equantimity.

You say:
”It makes me proud that so many people have adopted my term ”deadbeat” ………. Chuckle chuckle.”

Your term ?
The word “deadbeat” has been used in here for ages by “Mr. Yankiboy”, formerly known as “fredbdc” or “Mr. Fred Bates” our resident bold ”Shoes Salesman”, ”Real Estate Agent” and “Doomsday Prepper” from Washington D.C., USA.
I'll quote him….:

@123 As one of the set of JB “deadbeats” I have been wondering for some time what was meant by the expression but, valuing your opinion of me (or anything else for that matter) as low as I do, I only got around to it today. Spurred on, of course, by @154.

deadbeat [ˈdɛdˌbiːt]
n
1. (Sociology) Informal a lazy or socially undesirable person
2. Chiefly US
a. a person who makes a habit of avoiding or evading his or her responsibilities or debts
b. (as modifier) a deadbeat dad

As an avowed supporter of Hermes Binner, I wonder what your opinion is of the La Campora “Narcosocialism” attack on Mr. Binner and his Party.

I must say that such an attack on a thoroughly honest and straight forward person such as Mr. Binner is particularly sordid in the light of the Santa Fé ex-police chief being freed “por falta de merito”!!!!!

For perspicacious wisdom knows like a touchtone acumen, that it is the most execrable among us who villanously usufruct “time” to emblazon chimerical rights to satisfy the most abased, quenchless pleonexia:

“ruthless self-seeking and an arrogant assumption that others and things exist for one's own benefit”

Yet that same innefable fiend that uses “time” for this wretched purpose, then seeks to discard time when the shameful immoralities which longer existence naturally usher as concomitants balk their cupidity.

These urchins inveigle Father Time to further their wordly rights, but then betray it when time proves inconvenient.

But despair because of thee I shall not. For condign comeuppance for such debauched and warped codes of conduct will befall. The Sages tell it is so.

The problem isn't the absence of an Opposition alternative paradigm,
it's that the Peronistas increasingly created Action without Strategy.
And where there is evidence of Strategy - remove the assets of foreign companies - it is ill-founded and counter-productive.

CFK knows this, and this is her CRY FOR HELP.

She has run out of ideas, and this is as close as she will likely ever get to admitting it.

She may get some help but, having alienated most sectors of society - the 'public', public andministration, government and oppositions -

it is more probable that she will be allowed to drown in public and with worldwide publicity.

This way, an incoming new administration will be able to claim a New Start,
untainted by the Peronistas and their abuse of power.

Remains to be seen if the Incomings will be any better.
