    They should count their lucky stars that Rouseff is not a chip off the Chavez/Morales block.
    There just must be something in the water in the Southern Hemisphere.

    Good news for the United States. Brazil’s foreign policy is dominated by anti-American leftists who embrace and promote the leftist authoritarian regimes of Cuba, Venezuela, Ecuador, Bolivia and Nicaragua. It does everything it can to limit American influence in South America and in the world and even gives sanctuary to wanted Italian terrorists. Let’s not pretend that Brazil is a friend of the United States. It deserves its shoddy, closed protectionist economy. Its prosperity in the last ten years can be attributed to the commodity boom and China. It expected Chinese investment in return and instead the Chinese stiffed them. How do you say schadenfreude in Portuguese?
