About that presidential comment to business owners that "You didn't build that" ...
President Barack Obama says he stands by his point — that government plays a huge supporting role for businesses.
But now that Republicans have been ridiculing the comment for weeks, Obama allows that maybe he could have phrased it better.
"Obviously, I have regrets for my syntax," Obama said in a taped television interview with WWBT in Norfolk, Va.
"But not for the point, because everyone who was there watching knows exactly what I was saying."
