    She obviously wants help when praying for a miracle to happen regarding the negotiations.

    ”[The pope] made a strong appeal in order to maintain unity between the people of Latin America,“ she revealed, also criticizing those who ”go to take their photo [with Francis], but then do not listen to him.“

    I wonder who he could have been talking about?

    “...President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner suffered last night a sprain in her left ankle while walking inside the hotel room she is staying at while her visit to Rome.”

    She's getting very accident-prone. How do you sprain an ankle in a hotel room?

    I loved the expression on his face as she spent 10 minutes explaining the gifts she bought him.

    Jeeez! All this sucking up to the pontiff just to try and gain some global credibility.
    Sprained ankle boot? Sympathy vote.
    Turning up late? More attention seeking.
    Back in black, widow's garb? Ditto.

    That US$10 billion debt is not going away though.

    Maybe the title of this article predicted what Christina did in her hotel room? http://www.strategycenter.net/docLib/20140302_Farah_ArgOneStepForward030214.pdf

    'Cristina Fernandez holds two-hour private meeting with the Pope ..'

    It is wonderful that the pope has been given a two hour audience with Christ ina, I would guess that he kissed and washed the foot.

    She is a very sick old lady on lots and lots of very powerful medicine. She probably got up during the night, was disoriented then tripped and fell.

    I think someone is probably injecting her with amphetamines to keep her up and somewhat presentable during the day until they get their affairs in order so they can easily flee when the collapse happens.

    Hmmm… she is becoming like Brechznev, he had to have a stick up his bottom so he could stand on the podium in red square. In Arg these two couldn't stand the sight of one another whats going on? Where is Tango 1?

    Doesn't she suffer from low blood pressure? It could easily account for her falling over on a regular basis. She was lucky she didn't break a hip.

    sanctimonious cow!

    once bergoglio was in buenos aires she didn´t know him.
    now - as pope and more important than herself - she licks his feet.

    “Cristina looks like me after a day of work. As a working woman I understand her. I am a strong Argentinean woman and not matter what you say I will be here for 4 more years.
    Those people who copy me...///... you can’t copy me, I am Susana Brown.“

    BTW,

    @ 14 George Wart

    The black one is known as a ”lost lady' ....
    not a First Lady...

    talking about obesity ....
    while her BLACK ARSE is 48 inches wide...

    Mrs. Obambi is 5'11' inches tall and weights 2o9 lbs.,
    have a deformed face and kinky hair...
    she does not like pictures taken while standing because like Princess Diana both look BIG like the Statue of Liberty.

    Poor Mr. Trojan Rubbers..

    Anything wrong with black people, Sussie, you don 't seem to approve.

    We can be sure she has 10 times the integrity, graciousness and femininity than you, the transsexual harpy.

    Not defensive, but I am amused by your superficial values.

    I heard it was a 2 1/2 hour confession with Cristina spilling all her sins till the pope had enough and started to throttle the bitch!

    you have now lost any and all credibility. Your racist, sexist and stupid comments are beneath contempt.

    I agree. I thought it was very clever of the pope to talk about hypocrisy.

    The picture says it all, she is totally deluded, she thinks she is the popes empress on earth,

    she even thinks all European leaders will bow down to her, starting with France.

    Yup.
    She is losing the plot rapidly.
    She obviously thinks that an Argentine Pope some how 'validates' her tenure.

    Botox must freeze the brain cells also.

    I though I heard some peculiar but unsavoury noises @26, but it was nothing important.
