Bush: What is he saying? Middle finger?

From James Polling's Blog
At 16 minutes 49 seconds in his press conference Bush stops mid-sentence looks down and says something that seems like an aside to his handlers or something. It is very weird, kind of like the "let me finish" stuff. I've created a clip of him saying it and applying various different audio filters. I don't want to bias people so watch the clip then listen to the various versions with filters.

I think he is saying "needle finger or middle finger" what do you think?

i think, more importantly than even listening to the sound, is reading his lips on the video.
it DOES just sound like a burp when you play it back like that.
but when you see the actual video you can see that it's NOT a burp and that he is saying something , because he is mouthing an actual word or sentence.

Sure sounds like "beautiful" to me. I think he sees someone in the audience who strikes his fancy, and can't keep the comment to himself.

Sounds like he's saying "get over here" or "get over it".
