Blog: Uribe’s angry tweets do more than antagonize

11 Jul

than a year after he left office, Álvaro Uribe Vélez confessed that “it was
not in him” to live as a former president. And in fact, having dominated
Colombian politics for eight years, it has been impossible for Uribe to fade
from the public eye since leaving office in August 2010. Instead of retiring to
his ranch in Antioquia, he has lived in a heavily protected compound in the
capital, Bogotá, with his wife and two sons. He spends his time traveling
abroad for speaking engagements, has been a scholar at Georgetown
University, and more recently announced the creation of
a new political platform to oppose current President Manuel Santos.
