Argentina’s Cristina Kirchner saw her party take a big hit in Sunday’s mid-terms.
As Business Insider reports, that setback has riled up the rarely calm Kirchner. No great surprise there, but this was interesting:
In a fiery speech at Tecnopolis, the Science Ministry, she railed against her opposition, essentially calling them the B-Squad… stand-ins.
“We will discuss with big-league players, not with those sitting on the bench,” she said, later adding, “I’m nobody’s substitute, I’m the president of 40 million Argentines, I’m prepared to discuss with industry, the banks, fellow friends of the unions, with the true and real economic players. This is not match for substitutes, it’s a match for the main players of interests and lobbies.”
Of course, nothing like that could happen here.
