    Romney Endorsed by 1983 Nobel Winner Lech Walesca, who toppled Communism in Poland

    I love Lech Walesca! I met him when I visited Gdansk, Poland with U of I Alumni and an American Historical Foundation group. What a great guy. He's warm, he's funny, and what a man of the 20th century he was to help get communism away from Poland.

    And I'm thrilled this scion of fairness and love for people endorsed Mitt Romney, who will also be a great man in the world if he is elected President in November, 2012. :)

    As cool as it is, I see no reason for endorsements. Im not going to make a choice for candidate based on who others choose. I am going to make my own mind up. I doubt im unique in that regard.

    Did Walesa really endorse Romney? Last I heard, Walesa was unhappy with Romney's anti-union position. It's also no big secret that Walesa doesn't like Obama.

    That is good, Avatar4321. It's just that I met and got to speak with Mr. Walesca in person and hear his speech about what his nation went through under the thumb of the communists who beat and mistreated their people.

    If he hadn't had international attention focused on him, he could have become a political casualty back then instead of a scion of human freedom.

    So I guess it means something different to me. I don't think I've ever met another world leader like him. He's an enchanting character, a family man extraordinaire, and a man of the common, ordinary people who make up hard working citizens.

    He makes people want to be good and do right. It's his aura or something.

    He put his life on the line for his compatriot workers. He pushed the iron curtain off the Polish people because he had to. He's a dynamic man whose thumbs up to Romney means ever so much to his many friends around this globe who know who he is and the significance of his powerful life.

    Walesa has first hand experience at the 100% Epic Fail that is Progressive Economics

    Walesa is socialist, a union member and a great guy.
