Mustaine: 'Obama Was Not Born In America'
Dave Mustaine insists President Obama was not born in America, and expressed his concern that American's rights are being taken away every day. "I have a lot of questions about [Obama], but certainly not where he was born," Mustaine said (via Noisecreep). "I know he was born somewhere else than America." When asked why he was so sure when Obama's birth certificate shows he was born in Hawaii, Mustaine responded with a question of his own: "How come he was invisible until he became whatever he was in Illinois?" he asks. "They have no record of him." When pressed on the matter, Mustaine asked to change the subject. He went on to reiterate his support for Republican candidate Rick Santorum, saying he "looks like a really cool President, a JFK kind of guy." Mustaine recently caused something of a backlash in the metal community, before distancing himself and saying he would not officially endorse any candidate. So why does the frontman take such an interest in politics? "You have to be to live in America. Things change every day there, you just get more of your rights taken away," he said. Which right is he most worried about? "For me, freedom of speech, because I have a big mouth!" Watch the full interview here:
