In a speech that lasted an hour, Cristina Kirchner spoke before a Plaza de Mayo filled with militants and leaders who were expecting the Vice President to provide some electoral definition in the midst of the uncertainty that invades the Front of All. However, the former president spoke mostly of the past, she recalled in various passages her and Néstor Kirchner’s presidencies, she used phrases now out of use and confronted Mauricio Macriwhom he mentioned by name and surname after a long time.

In almost the only passage in which she made reference to the government of Alberto Fernández, the former head of state mentioned the short circuits with the President, but only to end up criticizing the PRO leader: “Everyone knows the differences that I have had and have and do not It is necessary to explain them… I said it on December 20 in La Plata when I pointed out: ‘There is going to be growth, but be careful, watch out for the prices of the economy because otherwise 4 people will take it away.’ And it happened, they are taking 4 alive. Because Argentina grew again, because Despite the mistakes or differences, this government is infinitely better than another Mauricio Macri government would have been, I have no doubts”.

Notably -or not- Cristina Kirchner chose Macri as her opponent and He avoided making an evaluation of the fourth Kirchner government. Nor did he talk about inflation or the high levels of povertybut yes, as usual in his latest presentations, he pointed against the Supreme Court and asked not to pay for the agreement with the IMF.

His speech was riddled with old and obsolete references. In fact, he had to explain to “20 year olds”, as he put it, what Billiken magazine was. As soon as she arrived on stage, the Vice President referred to the weather and asked the militants if she had stopped the rain, while the audience yelled at her that the weather had improved because of her presence. “God,” Fernández de Kirchner replied, holding his rosary and adding: “And I wanted to be a Billiken figurine.”

He also used an old saying to question the Cambiemos government for taking on debt: “A few days ago we learned of a report from a constitutional body regarding the IMF loan and all the otarios are made, as dog that flipped the potand after they spend talking about democracy.”
