Who or what are those forces conspiring to sink the life and health insurance industry, like an iceberg beneath an unsuspecting Titanic? This year, we polled our readers and reviewed our own coverage to determine the top 10 culprits to populate the 2012 Rogue’s Gallery. Who do you think should have made the list? Who should have been spared? Sound off at and see where your list would have fit in.




The Romney/Ryan Presidential campaign, for dropping the ball on what had to be the easiest challenge to an incumbent president since Jimmy Carter toppled Gerald Ford. Barack Obama and Joe Biden didn’t win 2012 so much as Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan lost it with a long series of gaffes, missteps, ineffective talking points and a knack for going after the wrong issue at the wrong time. They had help along the way: Campaign manager Matt Rhoades had conservatives calling for his head by the the first Presidential debate, so badly had he handled a series of Romney media events. Various GOP Congressional candidates energized the opposition with their social positions on women’s issues. And a brutal round of primaries left the Democrats with killer opposition strategies left on the battlefield by New Gingrich, Rick Santorum and others. What about the 11th Commandment?
