Wait, I thought he was taken out of context or something?
Via The Hill:
President Obama said Wednesday that he had “regrets for my syntax” regarding his “you didn’t build that” line that has become a rallying cry for his Republican opponents.
“Obviously, I have regrets for my syntax,” Obama said during an interview with WWBT-Norfolk. “But not for the point, because everyone who was there watching knows exactly what I was saying.”
In prior interviews, Obama allies have accused Republicans of taking his remarks out of context.
“If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help,” the president said during a campaign stop in Roanoke, Va. “There was a great teacher somewhere in your life. Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive. Somebody invested in roads and bridges. If you’ve got a business— you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.”
