Lech Walesa: Obama Has Failed

'America no Longer Leads the World'

The Nobel Peace Prize-winning former president of Poland, Lech Walesa, says President Obama has failed to reclaim America’s role as a world leader.

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

“…. 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,” saying the world has relied on a strong America to maintain the balance of power around the globe.

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

I think so. I agreed.
Coulda told Lech that in January '09.
Not that I give a damn about Walesa or "the world" wants or needs from the U.S., but I can't think of a measure by which Obama can be regarded as anything from a failure to a mediocrity at best.
