In the wake of Friday’s jobs report stating that only 80,000 jobs had been created and unemployment remained unchanged at 8.2%, the Obama administration, through Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers, Alan Krueger, said “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.”

Many conservatives have become tired hearing the same things from the White House over and over, so let’s look back to previous jobs reports and see how they have responded over the past three years (Click HERE for links to the actual White House press releases.):
