Former President Lula da Silva again blasted Brazil's governing Workers Party, an organization he founded, as old and out of touch. “We have to define whether we want to save our skins and our jobs or if we want to save our project,” Lula da Silva said in Sao Paulo during a seminar on democracy, which he attended along with former Spanish Prime Minister Felipe Gonzalez.

    He created the Worker's Party and now realizes that the MASSIVE CORRUPTION has reached such profane levels that it is about to destroy his legacy. This is what I despise about Socialists and proves the remark of Baroness Margaret Thatcher that it works fine until you run out of someone else's money...

    Skip. I think it is “toe the line” some naval personnel formation type thing...

    Anyhooo, you are right that little Brasileiro will be getting all confused about who to blindly follow now.

    Brasileiro is nothing more than a parrot of the PT propaganda machine. He is about as valuable to society as used chewing gum.

    The Lulu smokescreen. Watch for more as U.S. investigators, that he can't control, get closer. An individual that “presided” over a country for 8 years but didn't know what was going on. How similar to argieland. The “junta” weren't the same argies as are here now. Kirchner was 29 at the time of the Falklands War. But she wasn't “responsible”. Except for saying nothing and keeping her head down. And now Lulu wants the world to believe that it was “nothing to do with him”.

    With a bit of luck his cancer may come back with a vengeance and he will 'get away' with it.

    @ ChrisR
    According to Maduro, and chavista folklore, Chubster Chavez was “inoculated with cancer by US imperialist agents ”

    What do you make of that? A statement so twisted it is not even wrong, it's, it's. . . . Just. ... aarghh!

    PT is the most honest party in Brazil and the only program content with defending national interests.

    The rest are parties dominated by corrupt elite that defends foreign interests.

    If the is the most honest party in Brazil, well, I guess you're really screwed then.

    Good luck with that!

    Chilíndio,

    Do not be an idiot blind. The corruption of the federal government means a crumb compared the corruption of state governments which mostly are in the hands of the PSDB and PMDB for several decades.

    Yet for the past THIRTEEN YEARS Brazil has been controlled by the ruling PT Workers Party.

    @12
    Brasso, are you saying that the PSDB and PMDB are corrupt? If that is the case then Brazil is truly fucked. Imagine the whole of Brazil is corrupt according to Brasso.

    Looks like the PT is ready to implode.

    When Dilma and Lula are finally exposed the whole ant hill will crumble.

    I am getting a bucket of popcorn for this disaster movie.

    Lula and now Dilma wasted all the gains that were made by the party before them.
    It is simple theft and incompetence.
    Its the reason Brazil will never be a first world country.

    Same reason all the Alba nations plus Argentine will continue to devolve
    I love being right
    and telling you so
    :)

    Yankeeboy...Yankeeboy, you're wrong, your wrong, Lula is our Lenin and he's leading the campesinos and favela dwellers to greater prosperity and pride. “ The corruption of the federal government means a crumb compared the corruption of state governments which mostly are in the hands of the PSDB and PMDB for several decades.” Only a CRUMB Yankeyboy, trust me and also drink this koolaid.

    You know the difference between the leaders of the Worker's Party and the “corrupt elite” of Brazil? The Worker's Party crony flys in bigger private jets and own larger masterpiece art collections.

    “ “We have to define whether we want to save our skins and our jobs or if we want to save our project,” Lula da Silva said in Sao Paulo during a seminar on democracy”

    Now what kind of f*cked-up declaration is that ? define whether we want to save our skins and jobs, or our project ???
    It has nothing to do with “democracy” and just proves what he believes politics is all about .....having an elected post through which he can steal unlimited amounts of public funds, or using it to perpetuate himself and his corrupt cronies in power, long enough to create another Bolivarian dream, as in VZ....one sick bastard !

    The brASSHOLE @ 9 & 12 really exceeds himself....he is either a blind, ignorant idiot, in which case I could forgive him, or he is an ignorant, rabid petista, who believes he stands to gain something from the PT being in power, in which case he deserves to be eliminated like a diseased rat. I believe the second option would be more satisfying.
