Tocata y fuga por muerte política
08 Feb 2008
El bueno de Rajoy se ha dedicado–en su papel de jefe de la Oposición–, a decir “no” a todo lo propuesto por el Gobierno del PSOE. Una postura cómoda e inoperante. Además ha paseado la bandera española por todo el territorio español: ya la conocíamos, y además la respetamos.
