Okay, post what you think Mitt will do wrong in Poland..........

I'm sure one thing, will be his inability to pronounce anyone's name correctly:

Lech Walesa will be pronounced "Letsch Waleesa".
He will make a remark about Poland in WWII, not realizing that Free Poland was an ally.
He will make a Polish joke

What else do you think he will do?

13. I've been wondering that too............It could have to do with

his calls that Russia is one of our greatest threats. He may want to place Armed Forces in Poland to show force against Russia. This would be an economic boom to Poland.

Mitt may not know the following about Poland, but I do...

1. The call for a Polish Army to fight against Germany in WWI happened here in the US
2. Paderewski died and was buried in the US, but his body was returned once Poland was freed from the Soviet Union
3. Even though the US and Poland have close ties, A visa is needed for a Pole to visit the US

20. Shhh! Don't tell. If too many people find out, the prices will go up.

 

I'm buying a small brand Polish vodka for $10 that is at least as good as the $30 Kettle One and better than Stoli.

15. He's Meeting With Lech Walesa? What???.....

Lech Wałęsa is a Polish politician, trade-union organizer, and human-rights activist. He co-founded Solidarity (Solidarnoś?, the Soviet bloc's first independent trade union, won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1983, and served as President of Poland between 1990 and 1995.

Wałęsa was an electrician by trade, with no higher education. Soon after beginning work at the Gdańsk (then, "Lenin" Shipyards, he became a trade-union activist. For this he was persecuted by the Polish communist government, placed under surveillance, fired in 1976, and arrested several times.

In August 1980 he was instrumental in negotiations that led to the ground-breaking Gdańsk Agreement between striking workers and the government, and he became a co-founder of the Solidarity trade-union movement. Arrested again after martial law was imposed and Solidarity was outlawed, upon release he continued his activism and was prominent in the establishment of the 1989 Round Table Agreement that led to semi-free parliamentary elections in June 1989 and to a Solidarity-led government.

Interesting that Mitt is going to meet with Walesa. Walesa is about 180 degrees opposite of Rmoney. Why would Rmoney want to meet with a guy that became a trade-union activist and co-founder of the trade-union movement? Don't the Repugs want to diminish the role of trade unions here in the U.S.? It just doesn't make much sense to me that this is the person he wants to meet with in Poland - unless Rmoney's minders didn't do their homework and don't realize what the issue was that boosted Walesa into international prominence.

It is going to be interesting to watch Rmoney's comments about Walesa and hear what he has to say about him. Seems to me that Walesa is contrary to all that the Repugs stand for. It just doesn't make much sense to me.

17. I didn't say he was meeting with Lech Walesa..........

I said he would mispronounce his name. But it would be interesting if he did meet with him.

I keep thinking I'd love to see Mitt meet Putin. I imagine the expressions on Putin's face, thinking-- "Here we go again"---would surely be priceless!

19. He'll say something about communism

I've known a few Polish people and if someone says something about Poland having been communist, they hastily correct them and explain that Poland was occupied by a communist country but was not itself communist. This appears to be a sore spot.
