It's all about jobs .... yet again 

Matt Lloyd, who handles media for the House Republican Conference on behalf of Rep. Mike Pence of Indiana, the conference chairman, notes the similarity between a headline in today's edition of The New York Times and headlines previously seen on a regular basis.

First, here's today's Times head: Democrats Shifting Focus Back to Jobs Creation.

If that headline sounds a familiar theme, it should because, as Lloyd points out, it's being recycled:

The Hill (November 24, 2009): Dem lawmakers shift their focus to jobs package, away from economic ‘stimulus’

The Hill (December 3, 2009): Hoyer: Dems need to focus on economy to avoid mid-term losses

Roll Call (December 5, 2009): Obama Promises Focus on Jobs; GOP Returns to Health Care Critique

Politico (January 8, 2009): President Obama pivots to jobs as key theme

The Hill (January 13, 2010): House Democrats turn focus to economy

Roll Call (January 28, 2010): Democrats Pleased by Renewed Focus on Jobs

Flaks for congressional Democrats and the Obama White House are hereby invited to submit their own examples of recurring GOP media takes. Be sure to include the links. Who knows, we might even get a contest going here.

In the meantime, thanks, Matt.
