Job creation may be bane of Romney's past

Mitt Romney's "job-creating credentials" under scrutiny as plant linked to Bain Capital is about to be shut.

    US presidential hopeful Mitt Romney is on a European tour to promote among other things, his job-creating credentials - but back home in a small town in Illinois, those qualities are being questioned.

    Nearly 200 workers at the Sensata plant linked to Romney's former company, Bain Capital, are about to lose their jobs.

    And to add insult to injury, they have to train their Chinese replacements first.
