POLAND’S LECH WALESA CRITICAL OF OBAMA

The Washington Times on January 2, 2014, reported that the former president of Poland said President Obama is failing America and has let the nation drift in a pit of moral morass, driving down its standing with the global community. Excerpts below:

Lech Walesa, famed for his anti-communist crusade in the 1980s and as a Nobel Peace Prize winner, said in an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper that “in terms of politics and morality, America no longer leads the world.”

Whatever “hope in the world” existed that “Obama would reclaim moral leadership for America” when elected in 2008 is gone, and instead the president has “failed” to bring that dream to fruition, Mr. Walesa told CNN.

“We have to do everything that we can to recreate, to reclaim America’s role, and it seems that Obama would manage that, but he didn’t accomplish that,” he said.

Mr. Obama’s failure in this area has greatly jeopardized the security of the nation, he added.

“It’s a dangerous situation, so we are awaiting a president who will understand that,” Mr. Walesa said.

Mr. Walesa helped overthrow Poland’s communist government.
