Bush Tells Dallas, Fort Worth and Arlington Mayors Their Jobs Are Harder Than His -- Haw, Haw, Haw.

Um, did anyone else know Dallas Mayor Tom Leppert, Arlington Mayor Robert Cluck and Fort Worth Mayor Mike Moncrief were meeting with President Bush and Secretary of Commerce Carlos Gutierrez today, to discuss expanding free trade agreements? Well, if you didn't, there's a report here from the meeting, at which Leppert, Cluck and Moncrief were three of 12 U.S. mayors to meet with the President at the White House, where Bush said, according to the White House media release, "I often say being mayor is a lot tougher than being president -- I don't have to fill the potholes and empty the garbage." Dude got begrudging chuckles, from the looks of the video on the White House Web site. --Robert Wilonsky
