Dave Mustaine's harsh words on President

Megadeth lead singer Dave Mustaine doesn't like President Obama. How deep does his hatred of the POTUS run? Pretty deep, it seems.

Dave Mustaine's harsh words on President

It's official: Megadeth lead singer Dave Mustaine has gone off the deep end. The rocker — known for his conservative views — blames both the Aurora theater massacre and the Wisconsin Sikh temple murders on President Barack Obama. Yes, seriously.

"Back in my country, my president is trying to pass a gun ban, so he's staging all of these murders," Mustaine told the crowd during a Wednesday concert in Singapore.

"Like the 'Fast And Furious' thing down at the border and Aurora, Colorado, all the people that were killed there and now the beautiful people at the Sikh temple."

The formerly liberal musician apparently has quite the bone to pick with Obama — he's publicly come forward as a Birther, meaning he doesn't think the president was born in the United States.

"Why hasn't somebody moved to impeach this man?" Mustaine mused to controversial radio host Alex Jones "With all of the proof about his birth certificate being fake. And you see the signs in Kenya that say 'the birthplace of Barack Obama.' Hello?! C'mon, guys. How stupid are we right now?"

Mustaine came out earlier this year in support of former GOP presidential hopeful Rick Santorum. We're going to go out on a (short) limb and assume he's also in support of Mitt Romney as president.

"I’m just hoping that whatever is in the White House next year is a Republican," Mustaine told earlier this year. "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."

Mustaine isn't the only celebrity who wants to see a Republican in office. Former porn star Jenna Jameson wants Romney to win the election, but it's not because she's so into social issues and the economy. Well, she is interested in economics — the economics of her bank account.

"I'm very looking forward to a Republican being back in office," Jameson told CBS San Francisco earlier this month. "When you're rich, you want a Republican in office."
