"During I arrived..."

Watching the Daily Show today I had the pleasure of seeing clips from this interview of George W. Bush by Charlie Gibson of ABC. When asked about his part in the Wall Street financial meltdown, President Bush had this to say:

W: You know, I been the President during this period of time, but I think when the history of this period is written people will realize that a lot of the decisions that were made on Wall Street took place over, y'know, uh, a decade or so before I arrived at President, during I arrived at President.*

Are you kidding me? "...during I arrived at President."? They're giving this man a library? He's thinking of going on the lecture circuit?

* may be "in President", not "at President".

And with that "'uh' decade or so" comment, is he not throwing his father under the financial instruments bus?

I hadn't thought of that. I imagine there are a few things about W that his father has issues with.

I also imagine that he actually has no idea that the year 2000 minus a 'decade or so' = 1990......
