    La gestión presidencial de Cristina Fernandez es muy buena y me conforma en gran medida, pero la gestión gubernamental de Hermes Binner en la provincia Santa Fe es mucho mejor.
    Tengo la esperanza de que la gestión de Bonfatti, en Santa Fe, también sea muy buena ya que él era el ministro de gobierno de Binner.

    Y sin ningun miedo a equivocarme, estoy convencido de que la gestión presidencial de Hermes Binner en Argentina será aún mucho mejor que la de Cristina Fernandez.

    Google translation:

    The presidential administration of Cristina Fernandez is very good and satisfied me greatly, but the governance of Hermes Binner in Santa Fe province is much better.
    I have the hope that the management of Bonfatti in Santa Fe, is also very good as he was the government minister Binner.

    And without any fear of being wrong, I am convinced that the presidential Hermes Binner in Argentina will be even better than Cristina Fernandez.

    The “K” administration try to show itself as a good one but Argentina is falling in every aspect. The worst is the way she is ruling: her guiding-motif is “if you don't support me you are my enemy”. She used Human Rights and organizations like “Madres” and “Abuelas”, and she lies shamelessly about everything in her administration. Some people still support her because receiving economic help from the government they do not need to work, in this way the country is going to hell.
    About Binner, he could be a good president but is unknown everywhere but Santa Fé. He has no chances becoming president and only will steal votes from Duhalde and Alfonsin, the only ones with real chances to win again Cristina. As Argentine I think we, the ones no supporting Cristina, must go behind one and only one candidate to be sure “the botox queen” will not be another term in government.

    Yo confío más en Hermes Binner por varios motivos, los principales son la experiencia en la gestión ejecutiva como gobernador y como intendente en varios periodos. Esto no es una cuestión menor, ya que Alfonsin solamente tiene experiencia legislativa, no dudo en que sea un hombre con muy buenas intenciones, pero estimo que le falta experiencia ejecutiva.

    Porque vivo en Rosario, he sido testigo de las excelentes gestiones de Hermes Binner como intendente y ahora como gobernador de Santa Fe “a pesar” de tener al actual gobierno nacional en contra. Porque como bien dice “Rob the argentine”, una de las grandes falencias del gobierno de Cristina Fernández es la de considerar enemigo a quien no piensa como ella quiere que piense.

    No obstante, me alegro que en este momento la preocupación nuestras ea por determinar que candidato es mejor que el otro y no en determinar cual es “menos peor”.

    Muchas gracias!
    Atte, ElCura

    I trust more in Hermes Binner for several reasons, the main being the executive management experience as governor and as mayor in several periods. This is not a minor issue because it only has legislative experience Alfonsin, have no doubt that he is a man with good intentions, but I think he lacks executive experience.

    I live in Rosario, I witnessed the excellent efforts of Hermes Binner as mayor and now governor of Santa Fe “despite” the current national government have against. Because as it says “Rob the Argentine,” one of the great failings of the government of Cristina Fernández is to consider an enemy who does not think like she wants to think.

    However, I'm glad that right now our concern ea to determine that candidate is better than the other and not to determine which is “less worse”.

    I hope Mercopress allows posters to post bi-lingually (#1 & 3) using the translation service.

    This will allow many more linguistically-challenged people (like me!) to have confidence in their words written in their only language - Spanish or Portuguese, knowing that the translation will be adequate and will be identified as a (eg. Google) translation.

    This could increase the posting community significantly beyond we 'known and usual suspects'.

    haha... don't worry Geoff, I'm done with British Mercopress

    Boring British propaganda, I see they switch Malvinas for “Falklands” now even when they quote Argentine politicians directly, knowing full well no Argentine politician would ever use the fake word “Falklands”.

    Very soon you'll be ranting all by yourselves.

    Cheers, pirates.

    Goodbye, Martin Fierro AR,
    it's been good chatting with you. If you ever feel like returning to post on Mercopress you will be most welcome.

    Like you, I think the TFI/Malvenas debate is a-message-on-a-loop, but, for some people, it is important that each new poster entering the debate receives both 'sides' of the argument.
    The partiality of Mercopress is frequently apparent in headlines, straplines and body-text - sometimes in all three at once. But it is obvious that the Mercopress team is composed of South American nationals.
    There are anti-far-left slants and 'teasers' in many articles.
    But I find that most articles are pretty verbatim cut & pastes from othe SA news sources.

    Bye, for now. Expect to see you back again occasionally.
