Crushed unicorn dreams: Smaller paychecks spur ‘I should have voted Romney’
Oh, dear. The harsh reality of crushed unicorn dreams and the bitter smell of regret. As Twitchy reported, Americans started noticing that Obama’s “fair share” claims weren’t so fair and many were shocked … shocked … that their first paychecks of the year were smaller.
The indebted young Twitter user above now says she was just being sarcastic, but plenty of Obama supporters facing smaller paychecks continue to show genuine disenchantment. Feel the remorse. **
I have a friend who voted for Obama publicly complaining about the new #SS tax raise. I would just like to say: You did this to yourself.

Real photo or not, that sentiment is being expressed across Twitter. Obama is “the light and the future?” Not so much, unless light means light in the wallet.
I don’t wanna hear that “I’m mad about these taxes they took out my check shit” from any Obama voters lol stfu you voted for him.

Twitter users, in yet another prescient move, took solace in the thought that we could at least giggle at all the disenchanted Obama voters. And disenchanted, they are.
The thought of them all scrawling in their tear-stained diaries while smoking cloves and listening to REM’s “Everybody Hurts” is schadenfreud-elicious. However, sadly, we are all dealing with the economy-crushing reality, financial hardship and consequences of their bad choices. In Obama’s America, everybody does hurt.
Everyone going to regret voting for Obama after they receive their firstpaycheck this year (2013 payroll)
