From Hope and Change to Cut and Paste

I know the Obama administration believes in recycling, but this is ridiculous:

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)

February 2012: “Therefore, as the Administration always stresses, it is important not to read too much into any one monthly report; nevertheless, the trend in job market indicators over recent months is an encouraging sign.” (LINK: http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2012/03/09/employment-situation-february)

There’s even more cut and pasting by the administration spotted here.

Of course, the president himself sets a bad example for the underlings who write the White House Website, by either frequently recycling his own speeches, or not being aware when a repeat is loaded into the teleprompter:

Update: Obama’s recycling efforts aren’t just purely for domestic consumption. He’s perfectly willing to recycle speeches to foreign dignitaries as well, knowing that they — and the American media — aren’t likely to compare notes on The One’s repetitious boilerplate:

(Cut and pasted to the PJ Tatler as well.)
