    WASHINGTON -- U.S. Rep. Thaddeus McCotter's office confirmed Tuesday that the Livonia Republican is seriously considering running for president.

    On Monday, McCotter told the Washington, D.C., publication POLITICO that he will make a decision in the next two weeks.

    "I think the majority of the Republican electorate isn't happy with the choices they've got and want to take a look at new people," McCotter told POLITICO's Jonathan Martin. The congressman declined to talk to the Free Press about it further.

    A week ago, the Free Press reported that McCotter, a staunch conservative in his fifth two-year term and known for his dry, sardonic wit and guitar playing, had ruled out a bid for the Senate but wouldn't deny the possibility he might run for president.

    McCotter is a free-market thinker who quotes conservative icons as easily as he can recite Led Zeppelin lyrics, but he would have a steep climb to national name recognition.



    If he wins, it is fairly likely I will be in Washington and in the news on a daily basis.

    You friends with him or something?

    If so, keep me in mind. I need a cake job where I do nothing and get paid 6 figures. :p
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    I will settle for mid 5 figures and lots of answering phones, twittering and saying. . .Oh, we'll get back to you on that.

    And looking pretty. LOTS of looking pretty. :p

    For some reason President Thaddeus McCotter doesn't just roll off my tongue, he may be a good man but the name sounds like something off Gunsmoke!:D
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    Who?
    "Our president delivered his State of the Union message to Congress. That is one of the things his contract calls for -- to tell congress the condition of the country. This message, as I say, is to Congress. The rest of the people know the condition of the country, for they live in it, but Congress has no idea what is going on in America, so the president has to tell 'em." ~ Will Rogers

    I am fairly close to him, he uses my firm for a lot of his information.
