Maybe political puppet is not a right word. but still there are some evidences showing that her success is highly attached to Lula da Silva. She was kinda unknown before 2010 as a public politician, tho she has already been the secretary of enegy for years,
but more of a technocrat type. But as soon as Lula backed her and kinda appointed her as a sucessor, all voters are buying her and she became famous in a very short period of time. NOT because of her performance in the department of enegy, but what she
promised: she will keep on Lula's policy and keep on the legend of fast-growing brazil. in other words, the voters are buying lula, not her.
Seldomly you would see a politician only emphasized on predecessor's contribution without giving out a convincing policy of her own. In one of the activity in Puerto Alger or Sul da Rio, she asked the audience: has Mr Lula created one
million new jobs? While the audience are still in silence, she replied quickly, no, he created 3 million. What a clear
And almost every time of her speech, Lula is there, who said, if there is a problem in the future, he will directly call the president (he assumed here it will be Dilma) and tell her to fix it. by which, washington post called it one-way democracy.
Obvioulsy, Mr lula is aiming at 2014's presidency. He left, only because by law, he cannot campaign for the third time presidency.
Dilma used to be a extreme leftist and even in guerrilla. After all those years of military ditatorship, she and Araujo are those first to create again worker's party, but now... how come she changed to the representative of free market, as
quoted from her, part of the west??
And think about one thing, before her (now she is the cheif of staff), the cheif of staff stepdowned for corruption problems. He is her good friend. Now after she left for campaign, another cheif of staff got sacked for the same problem. Is it possible that
she is the only one clean??
For the success of brazil, how many precentage is based on its own oil resouces and how many on such politicians??? I would prefer to say, after so many years of suffering, the woman got the
lucky goddess on her side again.
