    Don't worry, if the Botox Queen doesn't survive surgery the fat boy will be there to continue stealing all of Argentina's wealth. Fellow Peronists will get some of the mordida, but not much.

    Good luck, girl.
    This is a more life-changing operation than you might think.
    It may be too much for the demands of running a country, especially as there are other health problems already affecting her abilities.
    Seriously, girl, consider your options.

    I think you will be proven quite right on this one. 20 days is nothing. This hopefully will be the beginning of the end for her (politically).
    Unrealistic for the government to keep reporting to her if she can't give 100%. She will be forced to resign if she cannot keep up. Good news for Argentina when she does.

    Fuerza Cristina you have done a good job for your country not least putting the fascistic murdering racist friends of xbarilox where they should be.Argentina may have its problems but thanks to you Nestor and Raul Alfonsin no more will the.likes of Videla,Viola and Galtieri threaten their own people.That is even bigger than the spectacular growth you have overseen.I however actually agree with Geoffrey you should be careful even if everything goes well Please God it does it will be a physical struggle to return as strong

    Botox Queen or corrupt generals take your pick. Spectacular growth is just vapors with 25% annual inflation. Better yet the Botox Queen is grooming the fat one, Maximo, to run things after her. To me he looks like pure evil.

    ---that's a good point. Who would be the better of two evils?
    But perhaps a complete overhaul is neccesary in the end for the greater good? Under normal conditions i would say no but politics doesn't move on in Argentina, if anything it goes backwards.
    With any luck Brazil will take over the north in the future ( their Brazilian now anyway). Chile can assurt it's old claims to western Argentina. As can Paraguay in the north. Argentina would be smaller and unable to be the bully nacion it is now.

    We've been saying something similar for a long time!
    A smaller and manageble Argentina. Relief to all their neighbours!
