Romney Seeks Meeting With Former Polish President Who Snubbed Obama
Politico – Mitt Romney’s campaign is seeking to schedule a meeting between the GOP nominee and former Polish president Lech Walesa when Romney is overseas later this month, Romney insiders and foreign sources tell POLITICO.
The sit-down between Romney and the Nobel Prize-winning icon of the Solidarity movement would represent an unmistakable jab at President Obama. When Obama visited Poland in 2011, he invited Walesa to a meeting with a group of other Polish officials, but Walesa, perhaps wanting a one-on-one, snubbed him. And earlier this year, it was widely reported in the Polish press that Walesa wanted to receive the Presidential Medal of Freedom on behalf of the late World War II Polish freedom fighter Jan Karski, but was not invited to the White House for the ceremony.
