Argentine President Cristina Fernández, CFK, said that handing over power is unavoidable, thus implying that she has no plans to seek a re-re-election, (not contemplated by the Constitution) and recommended those expecting her to be in office for a long time to pray the rosary at night and realize how fragile you are.

“Handing over power is unavoidable. Those who believe in eternity please pray the rosary at night and realize how fragile we are” said the Argentine president in a televised speech, as she addressed Kirchnerite supporters and added that “others” will have to run the country after her term ends in 2015.

The president made the statements following the official May 25th ceremony or the May Revolution Day of 1810, the most important date of the Argentine calendar together with 9 July and which this year CFK chose to celebrate in the Patagonian city of San Carlos de Bariloche.

The ceremony also coincided with the 9th anniversary of late President Néstor Kirchner’s swearing-in ceremony, and Cristina Fernández once again praised the country’s economic recovery.

“There were two administrations, but one same political project,” she added regarding Néstor Kirchner’s and her own terms in office. Cristina Fernandez also underlined that her late husband had given “patriotism back to the Argentines”.

The Head of State was accompanied by Río Negro Governor Alberto Weretilneck, Cabinet Chief Juan Manuel Abal Medina, Buenos Aires Governor Daniel Scioli, Jujuy Governor Eduardo Fellner, La Rioja Governor Luis Beder Herrera, Neuquén Governor Jorge Sapag, Chubut Governor Martín Buzzi and Vice-president Amado Boudou.

    I'm an advocate of the great Dr. Johnson, the Englishman of letters who said that patriotism was the last refuge of the scoundrel.

    Don't panic, General Kirchner will probably be replaced by that other world famous comedienne - Alicia Castro.
