President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner said anyone engaged in corruption or doing things badly or behind her back should "fear God and have a little fear of me as well".
Her supporters laughed and applauded at the line, but opponents said that invoking fear this way brings back memories of the 1976-1983 dictatorship.
Congressman Ricardo Alfonsin, who came in third against Ms Kirchner in the last election, said all Argentinians should reject such comments.
