11. Poland is socially conservative.


Even though the country is solidly pro-union, it's also overwhelmingly Catholic, and devout. Walesa himself staunchly opposes reproductive rights, gay marriage and in vitro fertilization, all of which are similar to Romney.

Also, he's quite reactionary, as some who rebelled against communism get to be. (See Alexander Solzenitsyn.) He oversaw the privatization of Poland's economy, and some say that was somewhat corrupt.
