Argentina: Rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrevolution

You say you’ll change the constitution
Well you know
We’d all love to change your head
You tell me it’s the institution
Well you know
You better free your mind instead
Revolution, The Beatles, 1968

Today, hard line pro-Kirchner parliamentarian Diana Conti and president of Argentina’s Congress Committee on Constitutional Affairs said this (translated) during a radio interview:

“It would make me very happy if Cristina decided at some point to give herself the opportunity to continue leading Argentina. For this a constitutional reform is needed, it would need 2/3rds of the votes (in Congress) and above all we’d need that she wants to do it, which for the moment we have no indication.”

We have to change the direction of the current Constitution. Our Constitution comes from a liberal conservative base and the 1994 reform was along those lines. We should give it a reform that changes the system of power”.

Interesting, no? For those of you just tuning in, CFK is barred by the rules of the game from getting a second re-election in 2015. However one should always remember that if you go carrying pictures of Chairman Mao you ain’t going to make it with anyone anyhow. All right.
