    No time to actual govern, just political rallies.

    God forbid a president actually ran the country during an economic crisis.

    If ever the best moment could arrive, but its near to hanging up her boots time, and beating a “retreat”...
    Bring on the Kirchnerites; there is only one outcome of increasingly less acceptance, nationally and internationally, and a shorter pathway to capitualtion.
    Who will wager a de la Rua like exit from the Casa Rosada roof top?

    A “let them eat cake” attitude.

    If they don't get inflation under control then it won't be cake they will be eating.

    She is more like Cercei Lannister 40 years older and x 20 times bitchier... Her son is just as spoilt.

    Cercei Lannister? Many of us will have had to Google this name - I hadn't even heard of the TV series until I Googled!

    This is last years picture, after her illness if I remember correctly.

    I wonder if she has been sidelined by those immediately below her and what has happened to Gollum lately?

    This is better than Eastenders but only half as intelligent.

    Half as intelligent as an Eastender? Oh, dear.

    If she identify's with Cersei I hope for her sake she hasn't read the books. The TV series hasn't caught up to Cersei's fall from grace yet. It ain't pretty.

    She thinks of herself as Daenerys Targaryen, she publicly said she was a favorite, so La Campora video refers to her and makes this bizarre analogy between them.

    She is more like Cersei. Its sounds to me from what you say she might get rid of Tyrion or the eldest Stark girls

    Yes I remember now - you mentioned the Daenerys attraction awhile ago. I've read the entire series so far - all 4 000+ pages - and ( spoiler alert ) both the Stark girls and Tyrion are still alive. I won't tell you what happens to Cersei. Wouldn't want to spoil it for you...

    Not being rude but she looks much older than 61. Must be all the stress.

    The party is over for KFC.

    This is her Swan Song, trying to leave with grace.

    Won't happen, the World knows she is corrupt...

    The truth will out... as always.

    61? I guess she's celebrating by treating herself to a tax subsidized botox injection.

    The only reason anyone would sit with Saudi Arabia is the need for oil as the USA has had to for some time. Now that is coming to an end. Need creates the strangest bed fellows.
    The reason assumption here as well is that Argentina is making no progress in Vaca Muerta and are moving to the realm of desperation as the seasons change and winters moves nearer to Argentina.

    Good luck Tinman.....a jew in the world of Wahhabism will fly like a rock.

    I'm waiting for the photo and statement that 'our Saudi brothers show solidarity over the Malvinas' myth.

    Equally because VZLA pdvsa can't keep it together on oil deliveries of dirty crude and they can't trade because of the falsification of US$ trade rates.
    Another fine mess!

    Correct....the entire group of countries is collapsing like a house of cards. The BUS is asking to speak with Obama like that is going to happen, or like that will stop the opposition from wanting this idiot out.
    This is the end of the beginning of the chapter please.
