And just like that, Ohio loses 1,100 more jobs....

President Obama is a one-man wrecking crew.

Just like his visits seemed to help lose elections in New Jersey, Virginia and Massachusetts, the President's January trip to Lorain County Community College to promote his jobs agenda seems to have backfired.

A Colorado operator of customer call centers for other companies is laying off 585 workers at one such center in northern Ohio.

TeleTech Holdings Inc. of Englewood, Colo., said that the sole client of the call center in Lorain County has decided it no longer wants the services.

Is there anything we can do to make sure the President doesn't come back?

Additionally, southeast Ohio also lost more than 500 jobs over the weekend.

Bigg's grocery stores plan to cut 436 jobs in southwestern Ohio and 111 in northern Kentucky as part of planned closings and sell-offs in the region.

The chain, owned by Minneapolis-based Supervalu Inc., filed notice after the regional chain Remke Markets, based in Erlanger, Ky., announced this week that it would acquire six Bigg's stores in Cincinnati and its suburbs.

Bigg's will close five others and eliminate 79 jobs from its offices in the Cincinnati suburb of Milford.

Governor Strickland has repeatedly claimed Ohio has begun its economic recovery. (DJ note: Ya think the Dispatch is regretting running with the Governor's suggested headline in that article?)

I'm pretty sure the families of these 1,100 workers would disagree with the Governor's assessment.
