FILE - In this file photo of Sept. 4, 2000, during his first run for president, Texas Gov. George W. Bush appears with his running-mate Dick Cheney in Naperville, Ill., where Bush used an expletive to describe a reporter while talking to Cheney, unaware an open microphone captured his remark. In the past two weeks the mayors of New York and Philadelphia and the governor of New Jersey let loose with a few choice vulgarities in otherwise G-rated public settings, but all three men knew full well the microphone was on.
