Walesa on Romney: ‘We are Alike’ (Gazeta Wyborcza, Poland)
Has founder of the Solidarity Labor Union, Nobel Peace Prize winner and former Polish President Lech Walesa endorsed Mitt Romney for U.S. president – thus confirming reports that he isn’t too fond of President Obama? Not in so many words, since, as Walesa put it, that would be ‘unseemly.’ But according to this news item from Poland’s Gazeta Wyborcza, during Romney’s visit to the country, which was ‘at the invitation’ of Walesa, the Cold War hero stepped right up to the line.
From the Gazeta Wyborcza, the news item on Romney’s visit with the Polish Cold War hero says in part:
“It was a good meeting – over an hour-long,” said Lech Walesa. “Mr. Romney has a sense of humor; he’s sociable, professes similar values, is very close to his wife, and has five children. We are alike and are looking for similar solutions. This meeting gave me an idea of what direction the U.S. would take if Romney wins. But I’m not endorsing him. It would be unseemly and inappropriate to interfere in U.S. domestic affairs. He promised that if he wins, he will invite me for a long conversation.” The politicians didn’t discuss visas or the missile defense system, because, as the former president said, these topics “are too complicated.”
