Megadeth Frontman Backs Santorum

Rocker Dave Mustaine is not afraid to speak his mind. The Megadeth frontman has called Barack Obama “the most divisive president we've ever had,” argued that “John Kerry will ruin our country,” and has reportedly insisted that the U.S. should “build a great wall along the Mexican border and not let anybody in.” Naturally, Mustaine has weighed in on the 2012 election and thrown his support behind Rick Santorum. “You know, I think Santorum has some presidential qualities, and I’m hoping that if it does come down to it, we’ll see a Republican in the White House ... and that’s Rick Santorum,” he told MusicRadar.com. “I can’t bear to watch what’s happened to our great country. Everybody’s got their head in the sand. Everybody in the industry is like, ‘Oh, Obama’s doing such a great job ...’ I don’t think so. Not from what I see.”
