two news headlines...

They ran separately, but there's an interesting common thread between them:

First there's this:

Justice Department Accuses BP Of 'Gross Negligence' In 2010 Gulf Oil Spill

Then there's:

How Bain Capital helped BP blow up the Deepwater Horizon, which states that "it was Bain Capital (Mitt Romney, former CEO), that told oil giant BP it was a good idea to cut costs. The cuts would lead to death, mayhem and the destruction of the Gulf Coast..."  http://tinyurl.com/6u7oyoz

I wonder if Romney counts all the temporary beach cleanup-up workers as "jobs" he created.
