Earlier today, Twitchy reported that the White House told Americans it’s “important not to read too much” into June’s lackluster job report.

Apparently White House economist Alan Krueger didn’t have to strain his creativity muscle much to come up with that line. And by “much,” we mean “at all.”

June 2012: “Therefore, it is important not to read too much into any one monthly report and it is informative to consider each report in the context of other data that are becoming available.” (LINK:http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2012/07/06/employment-situation-june)

May 2012: “Therefore, it is important not to read too much into any one monthly report and it is helpful to consider each report in the context of other data that are becoming available.” (LINK:http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2012/06/01/employment-situation-may)

April 2012: “Therefore, it is important not to read too much into any one monthly report and it is helpful to consider each report in the context of other data that are becoming available.” (LINK:http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2012/05/04/employment-situation-april)

March 2012: “Therefore, it is important not to read too much into any one monthly report, and it is helpful to consider each report in the context of other data that are becoming available.” (LINK:http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2012/04/06/employment-situation-march)

And on it goes. There are thirty — thirty — examples since November 2009. The Obama administration is slow jamming the jobs report to the tune of a broken record.

It’s the environmentalist sticker school of jobs report writing. Reuse … recycle … now how ’bout you reduce the unemployment rate instead of excusing it?

Hey, if today's jobs report is a "step in the right direction", why shouldn't we read too much into it?

Because, look over there! Squirrel!

Any bets on the next jobs report?

Next month will be 31! @SenLeeComs: Wow. Obama has used the EXACT SAME LINE 30 times to explain away bad #jobs numbers http://t.co/Uyh3Mqls
