Obama’s a dangerous disappointment to world, ex-president of Poland tells CNN

Lech-Walesa

Former Polish President Lech Walesa said that although President Obama’s entry onto the world stage was accompanied by hope, he has turned out to be a dangerous disappointment as a leader.

“When he was elected… there was great hope,” Walesa told CNN. “We were hoping Obama would reclaim moral leadership for America,” adding: “That failed.”

Walesa, the 1983 Nobel Peace Prize recipient, was being interviewed by CNN for a spot that aired Wednesday. The famous anti-communist is now the subject of a major motion picture, “Walesa: Man of Hope.”

“In terms of politics and morality, America no longer leads the world,” he said. “America did not regain its leadership status. We were just lucky there were no big conflicts in the world.”

A strong America had always provided a balance of power to the world, Walesa said.

“It’s a dangerous situation, so we are awaiting a president who will understand that,” he said.

After President Obama’s disappointing first term, the 70-year-old Walesa effectively threw his support to Republican nominee Mitt Romney in the 2012 election.

“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,” Walesa was heard saying after meeting Romney in Poland, The Weekly Standard reported at the time. “Gov. Romney, get your success — be successful!”
