Discontent with Evo in Bolivia

I said it then, and I say it now. Evo got elected with promises that were going to be damn near impossible to keep, and nobody from his MAS party advised him of this. I also said, that once elected, as president he would realize the difficulties with delivering some of his promises, and his own people would then protest against him the same way they did with the previous presidents. Well, it seems to already be starting.

El Mercurio from Chile has a story in which Evo is called an "indigenous neoliberal" that is starting to "dissapoint" and if he keeps this up he "will last less than his predecessors". And this was a native Indian doing the speaking. The whole article in Spanish here.
