Mitt Romney Praises Poland's 'Economic Liberty'

Posted: Updated:

WARSAW, Poland -- Mitt Romney is praising the people of Poland for marching toward "economic liberty and smaller government" rather than "heeding the false promise of a government-dominated economy."

In a speech Tuesday in Poland's capital, Warsaw, the Republican presidential candidate also lauded Poland for its higher living standards and strong military.

Romney's comments fit into his campaign's themes of smaller government, reduced federal spending and fewer regulations on business. He says Poland is thriving because it sought to "stimulate innovation, attract investment, expand trade and live within its means."

Romney says Poland's success is a reminder that "free enterprise can propel an economy and transform a society."
