During an interview with CNN, anti-Communist icon and former Polish President Lech Walesa said that America no longer leads the world and that President Obama has proven to be a dangerous disappointment.
Walesa is famous for his pivotal role in securing the collapse of the Communist regime in Poland thanks to his activism as a dissident trade-union leader and was later elected President in 1990. His life story is the topic of a major Academy Award-nominated motion picture entitled Walesa: Man of Hope.
Asked how he thought Obama was performing as a world leader, Walesa responded, “When he was elected there was great hope in the world, we were hoping Obama would reclaim moral leadership for America, but that failed.”
“America does not lead the world in the area of morality….economically it’s getting weaker, but in terms of politics and morality, America no longer leads the world,” added Walesa.
The Nobel Peace Prize winner explained that Obama’s failure to reclaim America’s moral authority has created a dangerous imbalance in the world that could have led to bigger global conflicts than have been witnessed.
“It’s a dangerous situation so we are awaiting a president who will understand that,” he said.
