Another one for the 'schadenfreude' file-The GOP’s Five Greatest 2012 Disappointments
http://tpmdc.talkingpointsmemo.com/2012/...s-2012.php

(Yes, I know I'm a Dem for Progress -- and that this reveling is unseemly -- but just give me until the end of this year to celebrate in all ways possible the trouncing of the utter GOP nonsense we had to endure for the better part of 2012!)

Number three on the list is my favorite:

Quote:3. Obamacare Upheld

On June 28, the Supreme Court broke Republicans’ hearts when it refused to strike down Obama’s signature legislative achievement.

It came at a time when Republican leaders were openly preparing for victory in quashing the Affordable Care Act. Even more depressing: the deciding vote in the 5-4 ruling came from one-time conservative hero, Chief Justice John Roberts, whose vote the right had mostly taken for granted. It left conservatives flummoxed and eager to understand his betrayal.

Now their only hope for repealing Obamacare was to defeat Obama.

I like #2 myself. Shows they were full of #2 when they had that incredibly weak field of candidates. Badidea
