Walesa to Romney: ‘Get your success, be successful!’

GDANSK, Poland -- Lech Walesa, the Nobel Prize winner and former Polish president, effectively endorsed Mitt Romney for president here Monday.

“I wish you to be successful because this success is needed to the United States, of course, but to Europe and the rest of the world, too. Governor Romney, get your success, be successful!” Walesa said through a translator following their joint meeting in Gdansk. He hit his handon the table for emphasis.

The favorable comments came as Romney began a visit to Poland at the end of an overseas trip that included stops in London and Jerusalem. Romney’s schedule on Monday also includes meetings with Poland’s Prime Minister Donald Tusk.

Walesa is reportedly not a fan of President Obama: He chose not to attend a group meeting with him when Obama visited Poland last year, and the White House did not invite him this year to a ceremony awarding a posthumous Presidential Medal Of Freedom to Jan Karski, a hero of the Polish resistance in World War II.
