Romney says Obama cares more about his job than about unemployed

BOWLING GREEN, Ohio (AP) -- Mitt Romney is showing no sign that he will cave in to the mounting pressure to release more of his tax returns.

The White House kept up that pressure today, with spokesman Jay Carney saying it's become an important tradition for presidential candidates to make their tax returns available.

But House Speaker John Boehner says President Barack Obama's criticism of Romney's career and his questions about Romney's taxes are meant to distract from the administration's handling of the economy.

Romney, campaigning in Ohio today, accused Obama of caring more about his own job security than about creating jobs for millions of unemployed Americans. He said Obama in the past six months has held more than 100 fundraisers, and zero meetings with his jobs council.

An Obama spokesman says the president has "a lot on his plate," and continues to get advice from a lot of people about the economy.

    Hillbillybob: this exemplifies why you're a hillbilly. If you did your research you would see other have released 5-10 years. Obama has released everything going back to 2000, so I guess if you want specifics, then I would be satisfied with 2000-2009.

      Wrong, you are worng and clearly not as smart as a hillybilly. John McCain released only 2 GHWB released 3, Ford released 0 Clinton only released a few prior to his first presidential run. Reagan, it looks like, released none prior to his first term. Here check it out. http://www.taxhistory.org/www/website.nsf/Web/PresidentialTaxReturns/ 2000-09 would make you happy? Sure it would.

    Than a GJ Hillbilly, to continue the infamous 'birth certificate' debate. You must have the same sources as Sheriff Joe and The Donald. Maybe we should demand his college transcripts, or a paper he published as the President of the Harvard Law Review, or perhaps his records from the Illinois State Senate, or the White House visitor's records? Oh wait, they already have. Stop being the ignorant hypocrites you are, and admit that every person who has run for President since Mitt Romney's father, has released these same documents. What's the big deal? Release the returns and move on to something that actually matters. He's the one making an issue of it by not releasing them.

      He has released 2 years of tax returns, as many as some other presidents and presidential candidates. How many years are you wanting him to release so you are satisfied?

      NIcely said!!!! What is it that Mitt is hiding in those tax documents that he is affraid to show them? As for the birth certificate, that is all they have. The president is a family man who loves his wife and has shown to be a good father. Yes jobs are scarce, but I am not sure that is going to be a fast fix. Let the president do his job.
