Dilma Rousseff:

From now on I am the president of all Brazilians.

I am committed to honoring women, to protecting the most vulnerable and to govern for all.

There is still poverty shaming our country. I will not rest while there are Brazilians without food on their table, homeless in the streets and poor children abandoned to their luck.

Sure hope President Rousseff doesn’t forget about Lula’s offer of asylum to Ms Ashtiani and her family.

Lula, who blamed blue-eyed folks for the global economic woes, conned folks into giving Brazil the 2012 World Cup and 2016 Olympics knowing he would not be the one responsible should they fail.
