My Two Cents: While the media seems to be excited about this guy and his “small government” rhetoric, don’t be fooled. While he may be speaking from the heart, his track record states something different. First of all, he was a big supporter of the Iraq War. He also voted to end Bush tax cuts. Vote wisely.

U.S. Rep Thaddeus McCotter (R-Livonia) made his message loud and clear Saturday when he announced he was seeking a bid for the White House.
The congressman announced before a crowd of a few hundred people Saturday that he is in the race for president of the United States — then brought out his American flag-themed guitar to play some bluesy rock music at the Freedom Festival at Whitmore Lake, sponsored by conservative talk radio station WAAM-AM (1600).
McCotter represents Michigan’s 11th congressional district, which includes Canton, Garden City, Livonia, Milford, Novi, Northville, Plymouth, Redford, South Lyon, Westland and White Lake. He was elected in November to his fifth consecutive term.
He was joined onstage by his wife and two of his three children on a sweltering evening with temperatures nearing 100 degrees, where he emphasized that the U.S. doesn’t need big government, but rather self-government.
