I am beginning to suspect, dear reader, that this year that we are launching is marked by an imprint of sarcasm in which each government official puts on a stern gesture, but laughs in our faces when he gives us explanations or wants to persuade us of the wonders of the current national and popular management despite all the evil that has been sown in just four years Mauricio Macri in this corner of the Great Homeland, to overshadow the successful history of Kirchnerism.
Less than two months ago, although it seems like an eternity, we were surprised when the vice president Cristina Kirchner He affirmed that it is his running mate with an office in the Casa Rosada who has “the pen.” At that time, the assertion sought to guarantee that Alberto Fernandez was empowered to decide whether to close the deal with the IMF and put “the hook” in the promissory note (millennials, see Google) that he proposed Kristalina Georgieva, already a little tired of so many sinuous conversations with Martin Guzman.
