People we loved to hate in 2012 include popular names in sports, entertainment, and, of course in an election year, politics. These people all did different things to get under our skin in 2012 but at the end of the day, they all sucked just enough to earn a convincing nomination as one of the biggest douchebags ever.

Being that the 2012 United States presidential election was the biggest story of 2012, it's no surprise that an ample number of politicians (and others who wouldn't shut up about politicians) made this list. Presidential silver medalist Mitt Romney, his wife Ann Romney, his running mate Paul Ryan and his biggest blowhards, I mean, supporters, Donald Trump and Karl Rove all solidly earned spots on this list for things they said, did and tried to cover up after they said when they thought no one was watching.

But there was plenty more going on in the world other than politics with some fan favorites from the people we loved to hate in 2011 back for another year of face palms. Kim Kardashian, Kanye West, Justin Bieber, Kristen Stewart and Lindsay Lohan unfortunately didn't go away in 2012 leaving us with another 12 months of hoping they would.

We can't leave sports out of the picture either. Who can forget hating on the NFL replacement referees and commissioner Roger Goodell for that cluster you know what of the start to the 2012 pro football season? Off the field, hockey fans have been happily hating on NHL commissioner Gary Bettman after the 2012-13 NHL season was marred by a labor impasse. Lance Armstrong didn't have it any better after his performance-enhancing drug scandal made him the black sheep of the cycling world.

So whether they were involved in one of the biggest celebrity scandals of 2012 or simply offended millions around the world with their ideology, all of these schmucks were our favorites to hate during the year.
