BOWLING GREEN, Ohio (AP) — Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney says President Barack Obama cares more about his own job than about finding jobs for millions of unemployed Americans.

A fiery Romney told Ohio supporters Wednesday that the president hasn't met with his jobs council in more than six months. But in that time, Romney says the Democrat has held 100 fundraisers.

The fresh attack comes as Democrats and a growing number of Republicans push Romney to release his income tax returns. The presidential contender has promised to release two years of returns by Election Day. That breaks a tradition started by Romney's father, who released 12 years of tax papers.

Obama spokesman Jay Carney says the public deserves transparency. He's joined by Republicans such as Texas Gov. Rick Perry and Maine Sen. Olympia Snowe.
