NEW YORK, Nov. 12 (UPI) -- New York's famed Times Square "Naked Cowboy" said he is mulling a 2012 run for U.S. president on a conservative platform.

Robert Burck, who was dubbed the Naked Cowboy for his daily walks around Times Square wearing only his underwear, guitar and cowboy hat, said his major inspirations for his presidential bid are the writings of Ayn Rand and his perception of government becoming larger under President Barack Obama, Politico reported Friday.

"I'm definitely conservative by nature. I believe in limited government, I am by nature an entrepreneur and a small businessman, and I've been very successful with that," Burck said. "All the things that are conservative, I am by nature, and I see this country as going kind of in the opposite direction of that -- so I'm available."
