    Dilma is set on a course of disaster for Brazil should she be re-elected by keeping “The Liar Mantega”

    How kind of MP to describe his incompetent stewardship thus: “Finance minister Guido Mantega, who has piloted the Brazilian economy with not much success”.

    Has there been ANY success from The Liar, I cannot remember any?

    As they say in Brazil, “the flies change, but the shit is the same”.....During Dilma's mandate, that was/is true, having to start off with a lot of the crap inherited from not saying that she, necessarily, would have chosen any differently, because the fact is that she needs to empower those who are loyal to the party (the 'labour' party, known as “PT”, and where you see this abbreviation, read ”corruPTion), AND know how to run their ministries....and when you consider the latter, the club gets pretty if Dilma gets re-elected, we'll be seeing a lot of the same flies, too.
