BOSTON — At a campaign stop in Boston, Mitt Romney criticized remarks President Obama made about who builds businesses. Romney stopped by a body shop in Roxbury to criticize Obama for saying, “If you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that.”

Romney stood next to the owner of the body shop, Brian Maloney, and said Obama’s remarks reflect his ideology.

“When the president said that ‘If you got a business, you didn’t build it,’ come here and talk to Brian,” Romney said.

Romney took no questions. Among the issues swirling around his campaign are comments by his wife, Ann, to ABC News when she was asked why the Romneys won’t release any more of their tax records.

“We’ve given you people all you need to know and understand about our financial situation and how we live our life,” Ann Romney said.

Mrs. Romney said the couple doesn’t want to release more tax returns because “there are so many things that will be open again for more attack.”
