Mother and aunt at the launching of Maximo Kirchner's campaign for Congress

Full article 60 comments

President Cristina Fernandez underlined the achievements of her government which, she said, have set the foundations of 'a bright future ahead for Argentina', and openly sponsored the electoral aspirations of Kirchner family members, during a political rally held in Santa Cruz province, from where the powerful presidential couple that has dominated Argentine politics for the last twelve years emerged in 2002/03.

    Does Maximo's campaign tell how his late father made off with a million dollars from the Santa Cruz treasury? How else did the Kirchners get the money for their political aspirations? How many more Kirchners want to rule the country? Why isn't 'La Campora“ correctly described as a terrorist organisation? What are these successful policies? Racking up massive debts and refusing to pay them back? Overseeing incredible increases in inflation? Destabilising the 'currency'? Maintaining the growth of the 'villas miserias'? Continuing the war against the agricultural sector? Putting parts made in another country together is 'industry'? Selling the country to anyone who wants a bit? Running to the UN every 5 minutes in order to sound even more ridiculous? Did anyone notice that, during the period that argieland was allowed to sit in the Security Council temporarily, it did nothing? I heard that it was because every time an argie went to speak, everyone else shouted ”Shut up, thicko”.

    I am sure he would rather be at home stuffing his face, playing games, smoking weed and doing the odd line; his usual life. But it is all about keeping them out of jail. They need to be in power to do that in Argentina.

    What an incredible amount of filth is spread out by a few posters in this thread.
    Thought you would have, from outside, an objective view of the current election process in Argentina.
    Instead, Elaine keeps repeating the tired mantra of “they need to get elected to keep out of jail,” not realizing that Clarín kept that cliché going to the intention of CFK--only to be ridiculed when the president did not register candidacy--to anything.
    Conqueror entertain us with a delirious dream about a La Cámpora declared a “terrorist” organization.
    What a bunch of nonsense.
    You guys should look up to candidate Mauricio Macri, who has finally realized--a bit late--how dear are to the electors the recuperation of Aerolíneas Argentinas, YPF and the pensions, as well as the Universal Child Allowance.
    Hey, “MaKri” as people are calling him now, is even saying the country will need to conduct “hard” negotiations with the vultures (after saying for a long time he would do what Judge Thomas Griesa ordered).
    Just relax, people, and enjoy the show.

    Old Reekie doesn't give a toss what happens in Argetina because he does not live there. I hope the Argentine electorate vote the Kirchners back in and then sit back and watch their country go back steadily to the stone age. You reap what you sow.
    They need to take a leaf out of Maggies book and get rid of La Campora and the Unions.

    Maximo for President.

    There I said it. It had to be done.

    I love what the Kirchners have done to Argentina over the past decade and believe that only when another Kirchner steps up to the plate that Argentina can continue along its current path without deviation.

    Most of South America (including the Falkland Islands) also hope for this, so that Argentina can take its rightful place in the world.

    “I don't have an 'outside' view, like you. I spend a lot of time in Argentina. You should try it and maybe you would not worship CFK quite so much.”
    I am thoroughly impressed by you, unlike I, “spending a lot of time in Argentina.”
    Will tell you something. Here in Alberta, Canada, I move a bit around and do get some direct observations. However, to get a real idea of what's going on, I need to rely on sources such as newspapers, radio, online information and to a lesser extent, TV. I, like most other people, don't get a direct view of most things but learn about them through media.
    Today, thanks to Internet, I am able to consult multiple sources to learn about the situation in my home country, minus direct observation.
    Then, I read about the latest poll in Buenos Aires province, where 41 per cent of vote intentions go to the Kirchnerist Scioli-Zannini formula. That tells me I am in sync with a number of my country people--as opposed to you and others in this board who just profess blind hate for anything remotely smelling popular, or, as you would say, “populist.”
    ”The Scioli-Zannini ticket...41.7 percent of the votes in the province of Buenos Aires...the Macri-Michetti option getting 24 percent (and) the Renewal Front (FR) of Sergio Massa with 16.8 percent...”
    Well...all is not lost after all. You may be in sync with some 40 per cent of the province of Bs. As.
    Not bad.

    It depends what you read, written by whom,and whether it suits you to believe it because it appeals to you.

    Direct observation would verify whether your belief in what you read, is warranted, or whether it is contradicted.

    From afar, and from what I experienced living in Alberta 30 years ago, I would have thought that the NDP party would never get elected
    The NDP runs contrary to everything Alberta was known for, and I am sure that there were enough polls predicting another PC win, many business publications and “think tanks” prophesing gloom and disaster if there were an NDP victory, and many stories of citizens groups dismayed by the results.
    I'm sure you would have no problem finding 'analysts' blaming oil revenue downturns on the NDP, and you might wish to believe that, if you were aligned with the Conservatives.

    However, the Albertans at my dinner table tonight, tell me quite a different story.
    Many are pleased that the PC's are out. Many are happy the MP's and Ministers are being changed.
    Others are eased to see the NDP relationship with teachers and school boards, is better than under the PC's - others want wait and see what the NDP can do, given the chance.

    I was very surprised to hear that.

    An example for you.

    I feel rather sorry for Enrique. He calls Argentina his home country and longs for it to be a place he can return to. Most people in later life want to return to their roots. He reads about the country online - the majority of his sources controlled by the government propaganda machine -, so clearly has little contact with anyone there. He can't return because he would be a stranger in his own country and his dream would be shattered.

    Enrique, my advice to you is to never return but to keep embroidering your fantasy. Argentina has some wonderful elements and could be a great country but it won't happen in your lifetime. I have great friends there and we have had some wonderful times together but I despair for what they are going through under such a corrupt and vile government. Most of them would love to be in your position, loving their country from afar whilst living a life in a safe and developed country.

    @18 It is a common syndrome and perfectly understandable. There is a natural affection for our country of birth and particularly as a person gets old they feel a pull to go back to their roots. (Though in Enrique's case, the pull is only to the internet to cherry pick favourable articles to fit his fantasy).

    Enrique may feel like an Argentine in Canada but if he ever returned he would feel like a Canadian in Argentina. After the initial flush of affection he would be yearning for the stability of Canada. Life in Argentina is hard. He has absolutely no idea how much it has deteriorated in the recent years as the false economy created by the corrupt government unravels.

    @9. Tell you what, Reekie, when was the last time you were in argieland? Not a stopover. I'm glad you're entertained. I'm not entertained by pictures and videos of cowardly individuals swathed in arab-style scarves to hide their identities attacking legitimate businesses. ISIL, Al Qaeda, Palestinians, muslims, La Campora, what's the difference? Not one with enough bottle to show who they are. I think they should all be shot. We are indeed enjoying the show. Imagine all of us sitting on a pier watching argieland drowning. Making “helpful” suggestions. Like ”The shore's that way (pointing)“. Then, under breath, ”after 2,000 miles“.
    It's always good to consult polls. Of course, you're not in a position to determine what part of the 41.7 per cent were drawn from the uneducated who have already been bought on the strength of a basket of food. But not so long ago, the polls for the UK general election had the Conservatives and Labour ”neck and neck“. And then the Conservatives managed an outright majority.
    You should pay attention to Elaine and Troy. There's something wrong in your head. Try the real world. Argieland is soon going to die if it can't get to grips with the real world. Kirchner trumpets here ”successes”. Massive debts. 40% inflation. Failing industry. Failing currency. Export taxes. No access to international money markets. Sniggers around the world. These are successes?

    HEY you pathetic subhuman Anglos:

    Remember your fake indignation over the AR pilots??

    “An on-duty air traffic controller at Springdale Municipal Airport in Arkansas was found passed out, drunk, and shirtless. He was later arrested.

    According to reports, Philip Maschek was at his desk on Thursday when a pilot waiting on the tarmac for take off could not get a response from the tower, according to airport official Wyman Morgan.”

    So Anglos don't put the safety of just one aircraft at risk, they put the safety of MUTLIPLE aircraft at risk.

    And as to not depart from the mold, are a bunch of pathetic hypocrites for barking all their insults at Argies and AR a few weeks ago.

    EVERYTIME this happens: the anglos have fun of the deaths and supposed “unprofessionalism” or values of Argies, within a few days or weeks the same thing happens in their shitty shitholes: a train full of passengers crashes, a bridge collapses, some flooding due to poor water control, mass shooting... or this.

    It's rather disappointing to see that posters here prefer to resort to such low-level discussion as opposed to advancing any sort of argument.
    We have an ElaineB who argues to know first hand what's going on in Argentina because she often goes there to visit friends, and claims I surely could not know what she “knows.”
    Tell you what, “Elaine:” Assuming you do travel to Argentina, this does not guarantee your objectivity, especially when you use terms such as “corrupt” and “vile”when referring to the Argentine government.
    You have chosen your camp, and so have I.

    @40 I didn't say I go there to visit friends. My work takes me to Argentina and I have made friends there. Since you seem to focus on my posts I will respond.

    You are very childish with your 'camps'. 'You are with us or against us' is very much the mindset of the K's and part of the huge problem in Argentina. That nationalist trait prevents the people from criticising and holding to account their government. People should question their government and their decision making in a real democracy. The government should be more afraid of the people than the other way around. Sadly, they get it so wrong in Argentina which is why the K's have been able to steal so much from the Argentine people and run their corrupt organisation.

    You are blinded by a love for your country of birth. You need to be more objective. I arrived there open-minded and during the course of my work formed a realistic opinion. I don't hate Argentina or Argentines, far from it, but I will express my opinion about the Mafia-like regime that is running the country because many Argentines fear doing so.

    @44 Some journalists are impartial, thankfully, but you are right, a lot will write what they are told to or adhere to the editorial stance.

    I am not sure Enrique makes any money here. He hasn't managed to change the opinion of one of us who know the truth of the situation in Argentina. Nor has he given any credibility to his opinions other than they are his own, formed by garnering information from the Kirchner dominated media, from afar. (Yes, Enrique, you don't like me pointing this out but it is significant so I will continue to do so).

    I don't know if he writes pro-Kirchner articles in Canada but I very much doubt they have any impact. If he is a serious journalist he would go to Argentina and investigate first-hand.

    Most posters apparently want to sidetrack the conversation in light of the latest news--others prefer to shoot the messenger.
    But let's come back to the story for a minute.
    Fact is, Máximo Kirchner is proposing his candidacy to Congress and time will tell what, if elected, his political skills are.
    the meantime, the powerful Clarín Group has spent significant amounts of ammunition on Máximo--going as far as to give full credit to a story published by Brazil's conservative Veja magazine alleging he hid money offshore.
    Máximo, as per a story re-published by MercoPress on March 31, co-owned “secret bank accounts, stashed with millions of dollars, in the United States and in the Cayman Islands.”
    The story was joyfully commented by celebrity MP posters such as ChrisR, Captain Poppy, ElaineB, Ilsen, Chronic, Klingon and of course the ineffable Yankeeboy, as a pertinent example of Kirchner corruption.
    However, the allegations could never be confirmed and shortly after the story joined others in Clarín's infamous Hall of Shame (said posters never backtracked on their hasty comments).

    So, despite the fat boy's (known) history - nothing to be proud of - you are naive to the point of still giving him credit....that's exactly the type of voter the K's love....not too well informed and very gullible.

    Fact is, electing an inexperienced, untested, candidate to run a country is ridiculous.

    To elect an inexperienced candidate with dubious principles and affiliations, and who runs a grossly overstaffed, outrageously unprofitable Nationised airline, is insanity
