Anti-communist leader Lech Walesa told Mitt Romney today that he must be successful in the November elections not just for America but for the rest of the world too. The former Solidarity leader understands how the economic decisions by US leaders influence global markets.
The Washington Post reported:
“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.

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.
