In light of Russian President Vladimir Putin having been given equal standing on the world stage  by a bumbling United States President Barack Obama this week over Syria, it is worth recalling that just under one year ago a haughty Obama lectured Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney about Russia’s role in the 21st Century.

Obama’s hectoring on Russia are not the only words coming back to haunt him from that debate. Obama also lectured Romney on the need for the U.S. to provide in the Middle East, “strong, steady leadership, not wrong and reckless leadership that is all over the map”.

The lecture took place during the third debate between the two candidates on October 22, 2012.
