    What a sad day for Uruguay. The country will now be run by a man fit only to raise pigs. This poor excuse for a President is ill equipped to govern.
    How is it possible that a terrorist, who killed and kidnapped innocent people is voted into office?

    Charles, John McCain ran for President last year in the United States, and he got a lot of people killed while fighting in Vietnam. How is that any different than Mujica shooting a cop? Or are you just another right-winger from Free Republic upset that Uruguay is still ruled by the left, wishing that Jim DeMint would stomp his jackboot-heel on the Oriental Republic?

    Try and focus on your country instead on trying to grab your filthy Freeper hands on South America, like you did back in the 70's.
