Hmmm, seems to be part of a pattern of Polish snubs coming from the White House ... www.ombudizen.com

Yes and to those of us who have some Polish blood running through us, it is disgusting. Almost as bad as Hitler killing all the Polish intelligentsia that were Jewish.

 

Apparently an invitation to the White House is only offered to those who aren’t too “political” or in other words, have fought against socialism (oh, semantics…). Seeing that  Lech Walesa successfully led Poland’s revolt against Soviet communism, I guess that puts him on the blacklist.

All this, of course, comes off the heels of the president’s “Polish death camp” gaffe, which caused a firestorm of outrage in Poland and was met by a less than sincere response from the administration.
