Second, Pres Cristina Fernandez, an embarrassment of a president, decided to go after foreign investment in Argentina:
Argentina can not play in the financial big leagues if they are going to behave like a banana republic. This action is a display of misguided "populismo" reminiscent of Pres Lopez-Portillo "nationalizing" Mexican banks in 1982 or more recent excesses from Venezuela's Chavez or Bolivia's Morales.
Cristina's motives are clear: She needs to do an "Obama" or distract voters from the reality facing her government.
Yes, Cristina wants to dance "the Obama" to distract her population from the corruption and mismanagement down in Buenos Aires.
The world is asking: Where is Pres BO? When will Pres BO stand for the rule of law that is essential to attract investors?
Where is Pres BO? He is on Univision "dancing around" his failure to pass an immigration package by scaring Latinos that Republicans want to send their mothers back to Mexico OR pass laws that will call on the police to stop every driver in the US who looks "hispano".
Cristina is doing an "Obama" & Obama is doing a "Cristina". These two are made for each other. The good news is that we can get rid of Pres BO in November. The bad news is that Argentina is stuck with Cristina for a few more years!
