Romney in Poland
Human Events ^ | 7/31/12 | John Hayward

No wonder the press wants to obsess over a spot of rude treatment from a Romney staffer. It saves them from having to report on the actual content of Mitt Romney’s excellent speech in Poland.

“Rather than heeding the false promise of a government-dominated economy, Poland sought to stimulate innovation, attract investment, expand trade, and live within its means,” said Romney. “Your success today is a reminder that the principles of free enterprise can propel an economy and transform a society.”

Yeah, a press corps desperately trying to get President Downgrade re-elected with double-digit unemployment, 1.5 percent GDP growth, massive tax increases for job creators on the horizon, and $6 trillion in new government debt really doesn’t want American voters to hear something like that.

Following is the full text of Romney’s speech in Warsaw. It’s well worth reading in its entirety.

———-

Thank you all very much for the warm welcome to this great city.

It has been a privilege to meet with President Komorowski, Prime Minister Tusk, Foreign Minister Sikorski, and Former President Walesa.

This is a nation with an extraordinary heritage that is crafting a remarkable future. At a time of widespread economic slowdown and stagnation, your economy last year outperformed all other nations in Europe.

Thank you very much for bringing this to our attention. As an American of Polish descent, it touched me deeply, so much so that I could not finish the text as tears fill my eyes. But it should touch all freedom loving people to much that same degree. This speech reminds us what the concept of the “West” was not so very long ago and how much damage has been done to that idea by the twin scourges of collectivism and secularism. I hope that Mr. Romney is the vessel through which this damage is repaired, and if he is as good at choosing staff as he is a speech writer in this case, there is reason for hope.

Everyone interested in the kind of President Romney might make should go to the site and read the full text of his speech in Poland.

The last time I had the same reaction to someone speaking was about 23-24 years ago when I first hear Rush Limbaugh on the radio taking on the Left. It seemed so out of place, and so right. Out of place because no one else was saying what he was saying publicly, and so right because it was the truth.

Now, today, Romney’s speech brings back those same feelings. He said what needed saying, did it eloquently, and it was, and is, the truth.
