Cordoba: land free of Kirchnerites or the province that despises the rest of Argentina

“Don't vacation in Cordoba because that province despises the rest of Argentina” reads a slogan massively launched by Kirchner followers in retaliation for the overwhelming support of that province to president-elect Mauricio Macri, 71% to 28% for Daniel Scioli, Cristina Fernandez handpicked presidential candidate.

    Can someone help me out here? Looks like an island of sanity in a sea of fools.

    I might actually consider visiting again. I always thought Rosario was maybe halfway to sanity (but then you bypass it and the worm-turns at Mendoza again).

    @1 I have visited the province of Cordoba on a number of occasion and thoroughly enjoyed my time there. Cordoba is a university city and quite handsome. But, for me, the rural areas are just spectacular. If you go try to stay on some of the estancias as they are beautiful places to relax and explore from.

    Regarding the article, it is true that there is a strong resentment by the people of Cordoba towards the Porteños. I certainly never experienced any antipathy towards the rest of Argentina. But, here is the thing, no matter which province you visit around Argentina they all despise the Porteños. They blame them for all the ills of Argentina.

    This campaign is pathetic by the Kirchnerites and will further alienate middle-ground voters. Keep at it and they will never be reelected.

    No one in Mendoza despises Buenos Areans. Many transplants from there live in Mendoza and like the city.

    “Don't travel to Cordoba”.

    Because CFK doesn't own hotels there?

    In this country BsAs is the centre of the known universe. The rest of the country is left in the dark. If you need a part for your car or anything else, it has to be ordered from stock is every kept in the provinces. Wonder why? I would recommend you not travel to Santa Cruz...home of cfk and her power-crazed minions.

    @3 So you admit you are TTT! Hahaha!

    You don't have any friends and you isolate yourself - you have told us all this. How could you possibly speak for the whole of the Mendoza province.

    What? I just mentioned Mendoza, since it was another province that tilted rather heavily for Macri at 57% to 43%. I could hardly use San Juan as an example since it was won by Scioli.

    ElaineB, I think Nostril is the spokesperson for MacDonalds burger flippers. His condition seems to be worsening.

    @11 On the other hand I believe that there are indeed a few Rwandas and Somalias in Argentina, judging by the demonstrated incompetence in economic management and degree of crime.

    The slogan means one thing : Cordoba is worthwhile visiting.

    This makes on wonder if in the next election cycles there might be some hope for other provinces to see the light and rid themselves of the pestilence of Peronismo and the crap that is Kirchnerismo. Maybe even rid the countryside of those places that have been so inappropriately re-named for Néstor.

    @3 ...ASS the size of a planet

    ..and now your ASS is obscuring half of Mendoza!

    1st. Argentina.
    2nd. Buenos Aires University Law School
    3rd. Mendoza
    4th. Something heavy (@8)

    What is happening here? Is it deflating and expanding like some sort of balloon?

    Now I want to visit Cordoba, btw. Beautiful countryside, a majority of friendly intelligent people with a good sense of humour, asado, Malbec... What's not to like?

    Sometimes the news is so bizarre, so CRAZY that you're not sure if you can believe it.

    Don't the British believe their Royals come from some spaceship or god chariot that left behind some rock which is still used at crowning ceremonies?

    I'd call that a bit out there.

    So very wrong...

    The British believe the World Series winning Royals,
    come from Kansas City, Missouri.

    The Royal Family however currently named Windsor, previously Saxe-Coburg-Gotha are of German Decent with Philip “the Greek” related to the Russian Royal Family.

    It's all rottingroadkill just like it's all latam and the best of the continent is only marginally better than the worst of it.

    Standard Troll distraction technique- If Troll is in a losing argument, make fun of the Royal Family.

    Ok, back on topic:

    The K's have no problem blatantly trying to smear a Province of their own people, in order to cause civil unrest and hurt them financially.

    Likewise, they have no qualms about hurting the people and economy of Argentina to stoke back at the party that succeeded them.

    Criminally selfish childish and vindictive.

    At least the adults are back home to break up the party, send the destructive guests home, and send the teenagers to their rooms. Punishment to be decided later.

    I really enjoyed my visit to Cordoba. It is a must-see province on your trip to Argentina.

    I like Cordoba, in fact I like it so much I am going to live there. Actually that isn't true, I am going to live their because that is where my girlfriend lives!
    What is important is to remember that CFK is despised by many Argentinians, throughout the country and not just in Cordoba Province.
    Hopefully the presidency of Snr Macri will be one in which the bitter politics of class division can be laid to rest, where the crazy interventionist economic policies can be replaced with liberal, free market ones-necessary in the 21st century-and not least, proper and constructive dialogue over the Islands take place between both nations.

    I was in Mendoza, where “only” 66.8 percent voted for Macri.
