Walesa saw US leadership and does not see it now

Former President Walesa of Poland spoke for millions around the world.

This is what he said:

"Speaking to The Associated Press Friday, Walesa said the ‘‘world is disorganized and the superpower is not taking the lead.’’ The former Solidarity leader said that when he meets Obama in Warsaw, he wants to tell him that the U.S. should inspire and encourage the world into positive action.

‘‘I will say: Either you want to be a superpower and guide us, or you should give the superpower to Poland and we will know what to do with it. Amen,’’ he said.

Of course, Mr Walesa remembers presidential leadership, such as what he saw under President Reagan in the 1980s.

He remembers a US president who called the USSR an "evil empire" and told them "to tear down that wall".

Walesa knows a thing or two about leadership and courage.

He was the man who stood up to the communist leadership in Poland.

It was the kind of "community organizing" that got you thrown into political prisons or "blacklisted" by the communist regime.

I hope that Mr Walesa speaks bluntly with President Obama. We need it!
