Is He Wired Again?

As Bob Johnson points out, Bush was off the reservation during his press conference today when he blurted out that Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11. However, as I watched the video over at Crooks and Liars, I was struck by something a little less noticeable.

Towards the end of the video clip, Bush says:
Iraq was a -- the lesson of September the 11th is, take threats before they fully materialize, Ken. Nobody has ever suggested that the attacks of September the 11th were ordered by Iraq. I have suggested, however, that resentment and the lack of hope create the breeding grounds for terrorists who are willing to use suiciders to kill to achieve an objective. I have made that case.

And one way to defeat that -- defeat resentment is with hope. And the best way to do hope is through a form of government.

But what's interesting is that during the "--" part of the transcript, he looks down to his right and mumbles something under his breath. After listening to it several times with headphones, I've determined that he says:
"you know... that... government..."

And then he goes back to his shouting saying something about government.

So I want to know what do you all think? Go watch the video and tell me - Is he wired? Is he reading? Is he collecting his thought(s)? What's up?
