    Mantega: if he is talking, he is lying.

    Simple as that.

    Didn't Dilma tell all the private banks they HAD to lend to the riff-raff or else, despite the Banks having ample evidence on default by these morons?

    And didn't I say that this would end in inflation and screwing with Mr. Market was going to end in tears? YES, I did, and I was correct.

    They need to shoot Mantega as an encouragement to the rest of the Finance Ministry dead-heads to pick-up their game or else.

    Do tell how you are going to get a head transplant to one with a brain.

    You will need a brain to do that job and that's the problem: Mantega doesn't have a functioning brain either!
