    If she accept any approach to the Evil Empire, it will lose my support and also the support of millions of Brazilians who will never forget the betrayal that this country of Nazi orientation infringed to my Brazil.

    USA OUT!

    She NEEDS whatever publicity she can get right now. The Petrobras scandal is about to explode and with the Swiss bank accounts news, Dilma needs good press.

    Socialists are nothing more than corrupt communists who pretend to be on the side of the poor...

    Poor Brasshole, can't accept the fact of how much shit Fatass is standing in. Can't accept the fact the socialist way DONE NOT WORK.

    Brasshole is either:

    A-Dumb as the shit Dilma is waist deep in

    B-Dumb as shit Dilma dumps on her people

    C-Dumb as Dilma's corrupt PT croonies

    D-All of the above

    Brasshole, don't fear, it will get worse in Brazil. Getting better is a long way off. How's the Olympics going........supplying water from your basement?

    I think she is just desperate for some positive publicity to shore up her image....
    ... or after a hand-out.

    We have been telling Brasileiro and his ilk that they are just suckers being exploited by a corrupt elite, albeit one that this time pretends to be on the side of the poor.

    Will they ever learn?

    The Petrobas Scandal is huge, we are only seeing the beginning.

    She's been begging for at State visit since she mistakenly canceled the last one. Odumbo should have let the next Prez either USA or Brazil to grant it but he has no idea what he's doing so I am not surprised by this at all.

    Dilma is a corrupt, a terrorist and a Marxist just like Odumbo.

    I am sure they'll have a lot to talk about.

    The world would be a better place without either in office.

    @1. Oh ho. Got any other war criminals you could elect? Maybe there are still some Nazis hiding out. Still, without your massive support, she will undoubtedly be removed from office. Not a bad idea for someone so corrupt that she had to be pushed forward by the corrupt Lulu. Who is so popular because of how much he buys. Anyone want to believe in a 'head of state' that doesn't know what's going on? Here's a question he could have asked. “How come Miguel's had a new car every month so far this year?”
    @4. What does Brasshole care how deep the shit is? He's still got electricity for someone's computer. Courtesy of the cheap rate electricity supplied by Paraguay.
    @6. Now, now, now. 'Dilma is a corrupt, a terrorist and a Marxist just like Odumbo.' makes you sound like one of those SoAm trolls. You were okay with me up until just after the word 'Marxist'. Now do tell us why Obama is those things you accuse him of. Your evidence is? Leave aside anything that just doesn't suit your personal preferences. Generally, we look to you for American attitudes and events. Now, I've encountered American ignorance up close and personal. Don't tell us you're one of those.

    @1 brassholes,
    You lot are either a bunch of liars or stupid. Dumb 'D' IS going to meet with BO, she will make amends because she has no choice ; Once that happens, I'd like to see you state, on here, that you no longer support her....

    As to your rather stupid statement, “the betrayal that this country of Nazi orientation infringed to my Brazil.”, please tell us what “betrayal” you are referring to .....(???). Besides being ignorant, looks like you are going crazy..

    “Rousseff will discuss the timing of the visit with Obama when the two leaders meet on the sidelines of a summit in Panama next month, a senior Brazilian official said on Tuesday.”
    Can't these assholes just use Skype like everyone else and save some money for the poor taxpayers?

    “..... and save some money for the poor taxpayers ?”...

    That would be a bad definition, governments need to screw the taxpayer.

    Not sure why Obama would want to help Embraer (at the expense of Boeing?) but it makes sense to have closer ties with the more sane country in SA. Even if Dilma is doing this out of desperation, I am glad it is happening, the fact Brazilero is going to hang himself is just icing on the cake...

  • Hepatia I appreciate your sentiments. However it is necessary for the two largest American countries to have, at the very minimum, a functional working relationship. So, I think Dilma is doing the correct thing.

    No one cares what you think Hepatia.
    You are a proven liar with your 'British Bomber ' sock puppet and your claims to be a US citizen.
    No one is interested in the opinions of liars.

    @13 Hepatia
    My grandmother always said, who mixes with pigs, bran eat.
    And I add with an excerpt from the holy bible: Tell me with whom you walk and I will tell who you are.

    USA OUT!

    Something about DUST.

    C'mon Dilma time to go begging to the US because the BRICS aren't running to help save your sinking ship.

    @13 Hippy
    So YOU think Dilma is doing the right thing ??? how many brain cells did you burn to come to that fantastic conclusion ? Just fyi, Dilma was praying for the US to extend her their hand again, after she got in a huff about the revelation that the NSA was spying on her, and cancelled her official visit to the US, scheduled for Oct 2013. Get real, what in hell does Brazil have that the USA has to spy on in order to collect information ? Just about nothing. The fact is that the US probably knows more about Brazil than Dilma does....

    @15 brASSHOLE
    No one gives a rat's arse what your poor grandmother always said.....the fact she had a fool like you for a grandson, must have made her very unhappy.
    And I don't think anybody needs to know whom you walk with, to know you are an ignorant twit.
