We must recognize the self-esteem and appreciation that Máximo Kirchner seems to feel for himself.
He is a National Deputy and President of the PJ in Buenos Aires but
he does not need to take care of the manners
like when he organized an act and decided to get on a paravalanche to shout while almost all the leaders were waiting for him on stage.
The fact itself is not relevant, but two people who frequented and frequent him point out that this type of behavior
says a lot
about this stage of his life, personal and political.
Cristina's son has just turned 46, he made his mother a grandmother twice and already has several gray hairs.
As a host in another act, he received governors and mayors in
frayed Bermuda shorts.
A couple of days before he had gone on television to speak like a statesman about the future of the country and rant against the President that his mother enthroned, dressed in an old Racing jacket.
El Cuervo Laroque is one of those who, formerly the mayors of the GBA, allows himself to criticize Máximo Kirchner for, according to what they say, "forgetting about the middle class and leaning on the piqueteros and the extreme left."
Those who know him well assure that Máximo does what he does to feel
rebellious and incorrigible.
"The issue is when
it skids. It becomes
dangerous and irresponsible. Let's remember that it almost turned the government upside down like when it ordered the resignation of half of Alberto's cabinet. Or when without warning it resigned from the leadership of the official block, generating another shock. Maxi does not understand that the consequences of these outbursts of fury

Lucia Cámpora, on the left, is the figure that Máximo chose to replace Larroque as Secretary General of La Cámpora.
Indirectly, or not so much, Máximo is also the
of a good amount of money that the country spends.
The tentacles of his group, through different ministries and organizations such as PAMI or ANSeS, protect six out of every ten pesos that the State collects.
But in politics, the talent for amassing power and money doesn't always translate into popular support.
This is what
seems to happen to La Cámpora in the Conurbano
There is no survey carried out by the pro-government or opposition mayors that does not return an image of La Cámpora on the floor.

us to refuse

El Cuervo Larroque is perhaps the most convinced of the
errors that are made in his group.

about the middle class. The cost we are paying is enormous. The only strategy we seem to have is
to blend in
with the piqueteros and extreme left movements. That is not Peronism," the minister often repeats. of Kicillof.
It is not very clear but perhaps those differences announce divorces.
The concrete thing is that Máximo decided last Thursday "the intergenerational renewal" of his group.

The camper Martín Rodríguez wants to be mayor of Hurlingham and is in a relationship with Luana Volnovich.
Both are the heads of Pami but a video on a Caribbean island affected them internally and they doubt that he is a candidate in a municipality where Juanchi Zabaleta maintains a good image.
