    Probably in shock after finding out that Forbes magazine ranks her 16th most powerful woman in the world, which might sound good except Lady Gaga was ranked 14th.

    You don't believe the official version do you? Most likely the latest batch of botox has rejected her.

    A Botox episode perhaps which affected her blood pressure… Could her low blood pressure be something to do with the harebrained schemes and economic policies which she has been producing as of late?

    It is a side effect of her thyroid problems but it is worrying that even less oxygen is getting to her brain.

    The very fact that you lot have Lady Gaga as the world 14th most powerful woman shows a lot more of yourselves than CFK :)

    Lady Gaga!! That's hilarious :)
    What's next? Paris Hilton for PM?
    Although she'd probably do a better job than her last 3 predecessors...

    Hypotension - For many people, low blood pressure can cause dizziness and fainting or indicate serious heart, endocrine or neurological disorders. Severely low blood pressure can deprive the brain and other vital organs of oxygen and nutrients, leading to a life-threatening condition called shock.

    Shock, eh? Would that be shock at how many people don't like her? Or shock at where half her money's gone? Seeing as her last “declaration of assets” was US$6 million less than the previous one. Shock that she's not getting her way on so many things, e.g. relations with farmers, relations with Britain, relations with the unions, relations with the Falkland Islands, relations with the UN, relations with the OAS. Did I mention relations with Britain and the Falkland Islands? (Yes, we have no malvinas, we have no malvinas today!) Relations with the USA. Relations with Canada. Then there's her surrounding wildly-supportive neighbours. Like Chile and Paraguay. Then there's the shock of the success of her “economic model”. I understand that argieland actually now has models of money for those who haven't seen any for a while. Because it's dark, and cold, and dark. Wonder how the street lights are in Buenos Aires these days?

    sounds more like a severe case of “sympathy deficency” with a touch of “didlo abuse” course of action.....apply leeches once a day, to allow botox reduction, and no more dry fisting for a fortnight its cruel on tinman.

    The straight dope is that it is a reaction from her botox injections. Remember it is still a strain of bacteria (botox not CK).

    Come on..........what a group of wimps the UK team is!
    Hypotension is better than seems her physician need to adjust her thyroid medication....and of course, she needs support from all argentinians in this difficult economic times.

    By the way, talking about health...have you all seen “food stamps” US President Obama's photos lately? He looks very thin and sick...
    and how about Hillary Clinton?....Hey, these two have the best physicians but the fact is Obama and Hillary Clinton are consumed by worries about the USA economy...and the difficult economic times ahead...As you all can see .......
    we are all human being suffering the consequences of bad economic times...
    UK PM Cameron don't look to healthy either!!!
    What the UK team have to say now?

    If she truly had 'chronic' (which means long standing) low blood pressure I doubt she could work 24/365 as she claims.

    More likely she has had a reaction to Botox. If you read the common contra-indications for each of the three common Botox compounds you would frighten yourself silly.

    Perhaps that is the cause of all this stupidity she exhibits at the first sign of (what she calls) stress.

    A very good solution would be a pistol shot to the medulla oblongata taken as soon as possible.

    That would end the suffering of TMBOA and that of the rest of the planet.

    I could never believe that you are in Arizonia and love Argentina as much as you do. No one with that level of national prde would ever leave their beloved country of argentina to live in the evil USA.
    That's what happens to real world leaders Ms Sussie, they serve their country and people. But what would a South American know about what stress. Good or bad, they serve their country no themselves like Christine “anal lips” Kirchner. And Obama's days are numbered and South America's free ride will be over as they know it.
    You may may convince all your sudacas that you are in the USA and the sky is falling, but anyone can sell them the Brooklyn Bridge is they weren't paid in pesos they could afford.
    If by chance you live in Los Estados Unidos, they sussie you are by far the biggest hypocrit since Kirchner injected ass fat into her lips.

    @ yankee balls
    Is not a ”subsidized goverment this time of the year is the only apartment available!. 12,000 students are enrolled at the Arizona State University at Tempe, Arizona so I did not have another choice.
    $650 per month is the average rent but in Los Angeles or in New York the rent is much higher.
    The spanish architecture looks is what is most attractive to me and as long I am 1o feet from the swiming pool and jacuzzi, that's great.
    Now, show me what you got, if really you are better off!

    Definitely a bi-polar disorder blended with mild depression (she's Argentine) wild tendencies of OCD. AFter she reeurns (if she ever left) to Traumatic Stress disorder.
