Sweet justice” is the phrase you’re looking for:

President Hugo Chávez, buffeted by falling oil prices that threaten to damage his efforts to establish a Socialist-inspired state, is quietly courting Western oil companies once again.

The sad thing is, Chavez might just be able to hold onto power long enough to do it all over again.
