Lech Walesa and Mitt Romney met in Poland on Monday as the GOP nominee made his last stop in his overseas trip. Walesa wished Romney well, saying ″Get your success, be successful.″ There is little love between Walesa and Barack Obama. In 2009, on the very day of the 70th Anniversary of Germany invading Poland, Obama stopped plans for a missile defense system to be built in Poland. This year, the White House neglected to invite Walesa when Obama awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom to Polish resistance fighter Jan Karski, during which Obama made a gaffe about ″Polish death camps.″ Romney later met with Poland′s Prime Minister, Donald Tusk and visited two memorials in Gdansk, one honoring WWII veterans and the other for the Solidarity Movement.
Walesa made it very clear during the meeting that he looks forward to Mitt Romney being the next President of the United States. Don′t we all! He told Romney, ″Poland and many other countries will certainly do their best for the United States to restore its leadership position. And after our conversation, I′m quite confident that you will be successful in doing that.″
How nice it will be to have a leader that is actually respected and held in high regard again. After four years of Obama, America has become the laughing stock of the world. Polls conducted by Pew Research in Muslim countries even show that they think less of us since Obama took office. So much for his international heritage being an asset. Lech Walesa, who actually won his Noble Peace Prize by doing something, obviously thinks that Obama is a joke.
So it was a happy visit when Lech Walesa and Mitt Romney met. Romney will wrap up his overseas visit today in Poland delivering a foreign policy speech. Of course, the successes of Romney′s trip are overshadowed by the endless attacks against him by the Liberal Media over remarks made in London. As it turns out, Romney was right about the London Olympics. Their security is so poor that a woman was able to gate-crash the March-of-the-Athletes during the opening ceremony. The events are poorly coordinated and marketed with many empty seats and downtown London is a virtual ghost town. Early reports are that revenues are off some 35%, ending hopes that the Olympics will be an economic boom for the UK.
