New York's Naked Cowboy plans to run for presidency
He might just be an improvement..
THE Naked Cowboy - New York's Times Square legend - will announce his plans to enter the 2012 presidential race, according to a statement on his website published yesterday.
The performer, whose real name is Robert John Burck, is a well-known attraction in the Times Square area in his uniform of cowboy boots, cowboy hat, and briefs, with a guitar swung over his shoulder.
Burck invited members of the press to the official announcement of his presidential run tomorrow at noon (3am AEST).
"America needs a president who believes in America. America needs a president who will stand up for America and protect its language, its borders, and most importantly, its culture," Burck said in a statement.
"America, I will fight to give the power back to the people. My entire platform and all of my policies and decisions will be organized so as to achieve a much smaller, fiscally responsible, decentralized federal government," added the 39-year-old, who earned a bachelor's degree in political science at the University of Cincinnati.
In July 2009, Burck challenged Mayor Michael Bloomberg in that year's election for mayor of New York City. He withdrew from the race a couple of months later, saying there was too much red-tape involved.
Look what he wears, he's not a fashion maven. I bet he wont be wearing the $500 sneakers that Michele Obama feels teh need to buy. Maybe the Naked Cowboy can relate to the needs of the People. These other clowns are have no clue. 'Let them eat cake'
He already has a website so you can comunicate with him. Ever try e-mailing a current politician? Form letter respoonse is all you get. And they supposedly work for us.
Hey, I would rather have average Joe Schmoe in office than a big politician. It would show America really is for the people. Too bad one president Joe Schmoe wouldn't do much compared to 25 Joe Schmoes in the senate. To be honest, ideally we would have an American history professor as president with an American economy professor as his VP.
