    I nearly spat my breakfast hot chocolate out when this opened up!

    Bare faced liar is a far more accurate a description.

    The Brazilian politicians really are VERY lucky because a majority of the population is ignorant & retarded and therefore they blindly believe in their leaders! Now that the carnival is just around the corner; who cares for the political & economic crisis?

    No wonder that all the corrupt politicians [the list is VERY big] are thriving and will CONTINUE to thrive in Brazil!

    Therefore it is also true that Lula & Dilma during the last fourteen [8+6] years, have transformed Brazil into a great and an affluent country!

    Lula da Silva is the image of Septimus Blatta, a consummate and bare-faced liar and thief.
    Da Silva has baldly sworn that black is white and white is black more times than I read in the government of Brasil, the media, and public fora.
    Who would have thought that both da Silva and Blatta would both exist at the same time. This truly a bad dream.

    Lula trots out “THE BIG LIE”. If there's no-one more honest, there's also no-one more stupid. And this cretin is seeking re-election? He's totally honest and all this is going on right under his nose? Pick a charge and then lock him away for the rest of his life. Perhaps a suitable rat and cockroach-infested cell will persuade him to shop Dilma as well.

    Sure, and the moon is made of green cheese......So the poor, wee fella is furious ?? who could ever doubt his claim ? while the statement will go down in history as about the most absurd thing ever to be said, the phrase would look good on his headstone....“Here lies the most honest man in Brazil”. After he's dead, WGAF ?
