Granted, not all Poles were enthusiastic about Obama's visit. To them, it meant that several important arteries were going to be blocked off for three hours at a time, making it so they couldn't get home after work. But, to others, it meant that the most powerful man in the world was gracing Poland with his presence at long last. (NOTE: The Poles were snubbed when Obama failed to show at the Kaczyncy's funeral, choosing to go golfing instead (that volcano eruption was to blame.)) The Poles have long felt that the US has ignored them for a long time and not lived up to its end of the deals (Iraq, Afghanistan.) They saw this as an opportunity for Obama to set things right.
He gave vague promises that the visa restrictions for Poland would be lifted; he praised Polish democracy (something the Germans would never do (this is a joke for those who don't get it. Look up what a 'Polish Parliament" is.)); he pointed his finger and Byelarus, a country no one particularly cares about, and said that they muffed things up; he also said/did some other things I have not recounted on this page.
Overall, I'm pretty bummed I missed out on a chance to see the VC-25, but I did get to see a snazzy C-17 that preceded the visit (no picture, sorry.)
