Roseanne running for president

ROSEANNE Barr plans to run for US presidency.

The American actress has announced she is "totally serious" about putting herself forward to succeed Barack Obama because she wants to provide a voice for taxpayers, who she would like as her vice-president.

She said: "I am running for President of the United States. I've got to solve all the world's problems. I'm totally serious because I want to be part of the debates, I want to represent the taxpayers and in fact, I'm choosing the taxpayers as my vice-president.

"I definitely want to be in the debates and if I'm not in the debates then I'll Photoshop me in anyway. I want to put the questions to the panel about, 'Where the hell did our money go?' That's number one.

"I'd be getting rid of money, there would be no money or money systems. I'm totally serious."

However, the 58-year-old TV star insisted she would not become a member of any of the current political parties because they "suck" and contain "a bunch of criminals".

She added to US TV talk show host Jay Leno: "I'm not for either party because they both suck and they're both a bunch of criminals. I've made up my own party called America's Green Tea party. There would be no taxes. I'd forgive all student loans, all debts. All you have to do to be president is show up and throw a speech."
