The Obama White House deserves credit for its consistency, if not its performance, on jobs. Since November 2009 it has told Americans not to read too much into a monthly jobs report a staggering 30 times.

1. 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.”

2. 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.”

3. 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.”

4. 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.”

5. 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.”

6. January 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.”

7. December 2011: “Therefore, as the Administration always stresses, it is important not to read too much into any one monthly report.”

8. November 2011: “Therefore, as the Administration always stresses, it is important not to read too much into any one monthly report.”

9. October 2011: “The monthly employment and unemployment numbers are volatile and employment estimates are subject to substantial revision. There is no better example than August’s jobs figure, which was initially reported at zero and in the latest revision increased to 104,000. This illustrates why the Administration always stresses it is important not to read too much into any one monthly report.”

10. September 2011: “Therefore, as the Administration always stresses, it is important not to read too much into any one monthly report.”

11. August 2011: “Therefore, as the Administration always stresses, it is important not to read too much into any one monthly report.”

12. July 2011: “Therefore, as the Administration always stresses, it is important not to read too much into any one monthly report.”

13. June 2011: “Therefore, as the Administration always stresses, it is important not to read too much into any one monthly report.”

14. May 2011: “Therefore, as the Administration always stresses, it is important not to read too much into any one monthly report.”

15. April 2011: “Therefore, as the Administration always stresses, it is important not to read too much into any one monthly report.”

16. March 2011: “Therefore, as the Administration always stresses, it is important not to read too much into any one monthly report.”

17. February 2011: “Therefore, as the Administration always stresses, it is important not to read too much into any one monthly report.”

18. January 2011: “Therefore, as the Administration always stresses, it is important not to read too much into any one monthly report.”

19. December 2010: “Therefore, as the Administration always stresses, it is important not to read too much into any one monthly report.”

20. November 2010: “Therefore, as the Administration always stresses, it is important not to read too much into any one monthly report.”

21. October 2010: “Given the volatility in monthly employment and unemployment data, it is important not to read too much into any one monthly report.”

22. September 2010: “Given the volatility in the monthly employment and unemployment data, it is important not to read too much into any one monthly report.”

23. July 2010: “Therefore, it is important not to read too much into any one monthly report, positive or negative.  It is essential that we continue our efforts to move in the right direction and replace job losses with robust job gains.”

24. August 2010: “Therefore, it is important not to read too much into any one monthly report, positive or negative.”

25. June 2010: “As always, it is important not to read too much into any one monthly report, positive or negative.”

26. May 2010: “As always, it is important not to read too much into any one monthly report, positive or negative.”

27. April 2010: “Therefore, it is important not to read too much into any one monthly report, positive or negative.”

29. January 2010: “Therefore, it is important not to read too much into any one monthly report, positive or negative.”

30. November 2009: “Therefore, it is important not to read too much into any one monthly report, positive or negative.”

Fair enough then, don’t read too much into one monthly jobs report. But how about 41 straight months?
