Legendary Polish Solidarity leader and co-founder Lech Walesa did not agree to meet president of the United States Barack Obama on Saturday afternoon. Walesa said: "it does not suit me" answering journalist why he was not going to talk to Barack Obama. Lech Walesa in the interview for a national newspaper added that he does not have time. According to the source, who spoke under the condition of being unnamed to the Polish Press Agency (PAP), Walesa was invited on the short notice, a day before the meeting with the American president. Later US Ambassador Lee Feinstein telephoned former Solidarity leader asking him to change his decision. Walesa denied.
What was the reason?

I’m guessing Walesa knows how the American unions have misused his legacy and wasn’t about to provide a photo op for Obama.
He knows a communist when he see’s one.
No need for another post on this article by anyone else...yours said it best!!!
Islamic people and people from Communist countries fear Islam and Communism more than anything. People who actually know what they are talking about, people who have actually lived it, know better than Hollywood, multi-millionaire Leftists, and the idiotic hippys.
Wait until Sean Penn has his bank account and his home ‘liberated for the people’. Wait until Behar and Whoopie get arrested for driving or not wearing a burka. Then we will see how dedicated they really are to turning America into a third world dictatorship.
Obama and his supporters talk the talk, but they do not walk the walk.
Islamics and democrats unite in quest to cut off Adam Smith’s invisible hand.
Maybe the difference is - they always had it, fought and suffered without bending - and still stand tall.
Hoorah for Lech - our little tin-pot doesn't deserve to be in the same room with him or Bibi.
I had forgotten obama made a significant shift in US policy by ditching the missile defense shield- and announced it on the anniversary of the Soviet invasion of Poland. Got to hand it to the pos, he has timing
It is understandable for a man who helped shed the shackles of communism from Poland, to refuse meeting a leader who is imposing the shackles of communism on the USA.
Obama might have told him about his [Obama’s] Polish roots and heritage.
Lech Walesa is my (American) Presiden!
You forgot our neighbor to the north: Stephen Harper (Arugably) the leader of the Free-World now..
***It is understandable for a man who helped shed the shackles of communism from Poland, to refuse meeting a leader who is imposing the shackles of communism on the USA.***
I’m only sorry that Walesa didn’t say that Obama cancelled the missile defense to protect us from communism and now he wants me to honor him with a state visit.

In the southwest is a train where once a year the locals all line up and moon the am track going by.
All Poland should line up and moon this narcissist punk.
you are right.
When my daughter and hubby were stationed in Nova Scotia a few years ago, I got to visit a couple times. It felt like our country was when I was a kid growing up on my grandparents farm.
My kids loved it there too - and have considered retiring there - it's duel citizenship. NB & Nova Scotia are also 'removed' somewhat from the rest of Canada - a plus.
It might be the place...if Harper can root out the socialists and push back the muzzies and the politically correct/hate speech that is giving them the upper hand.
Come on Lech, the AnointedIdiot has some Polish in him too. /s =.=
“He knows a communist when he sees one.”
We have a winner!!
