Video: Thaddeus McCotter Formally Announces His Candidacy For The Republican Nomination

Thaddeus McCotter announced his intentions to run for President of the United States on July 2, 2011 in Whitmore Lake, Michigan at the WAAM Freedom Festival, a perfect setting for the “rocker” candidate:

As always, McCotter spoke to the assembled crowd extemporaneously and with conviction, without the need of notes or  teleprompter.
Here are some memorable quotes from Rep. McCotter’s address tonight:

Through your hard work and through your principled determination to bequeth to your children a better America, we will restructure the government.

The United States will remain a beacon of liberty.

Our security is from strength not appeasement or surrender

Our prosperity is from the private sector not the public sector.

While it is a hard road ahead, we will have better days and we will start now.

What we need in Wahington is someone who knows the future is not big government…it is self government.

Today I am announcing my candidacy for President of the United States.

McCotter’s website is  McCotter Rocks, and his  new campaign website is up; McCotter, 2012.

Among his  five principles is,  “Our liberty is from God not the government” , and “Our security is from strength nor surrender, and “Our truths are self evident, not relative.”

Gotta love it!

Here’s Greg Gutfeld giving McCotter a free plug in his Red Eye Gregalogue, last April:

I’m with Gutfeld. (I need a campaign button for my shorty robe, too.)

  4. Seems as though Thaddeus has a couple of flies in his “conservative” ointment. Michelle Malkin has a good post on that today.
