    She needs to step down for the good of the nation.

    Lefties never seem to know when the jig is up.

    She has nothing - no proof - to justify that the country benefitted [?] due to about 6 years of her leadership.

    The other leaders who yearn to get into her seat are not only in the same boat but are also the culprits of many wrongdoings!

    The acts of all these so called leaders give a lesson and a graphic example to the future generation of the politicians in Brazil.

    The fat cow has to go ! She will be remembered for doing nothing except permiting rampant corruption and ruining the economy.
    As I've said before, Temer is not the ideal replacement, but if he manages to cut govt expenses, reduce the size of Govt and cut the absurd number of Ministries by half, and give a boost to the country's self-esteem, he will be a damned sight better than the incompetent cow has been. As to the possibility of his future impeachment, that is another story, and which hasn't even started yet.

    Is that what is really happening Hepatia?

    Oh well, then perhaps Brazil shouldn't be so weak to let it happen then.
