Megadeth Rocker Endorses Santorum

Rock musician Dave Mustaine of Megadeth had been a flaming Left-winger in the 1990s, but he’s transformed into a social-conservative die hard Republican and recently endorsed Rick Santorum for the 2012 GOP Presidential nomination.

The Houston Chronicle reports that, “Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine took the time from touring with the Gigantour to talk to musicradar.com about his music, his neck surgery and his acting aspirations. Also, they talked some politics.”

He said, “I’m just hoping that whatever is in the White House next year is a Republican. I can’t bear to watch what’s happened to our great country. Everybody’s got their heads 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 added, “looking at the Republican candidates, I’ve got to tell you I was floored the other day to see that Mitt Romney’s five boys have a $100 million trust fund. Where does a guy make that much money? So there’s some questions there. And watching Newt Gingrich, I was pretty excited for a while, but now he’s just gone back to being that person that everybody said he was, that angry little man. I still like him, but I don’t think I’d vote for him.”

He continued, “earlier in the election, I was completely oblivious as to who Rick Santorum was, but when the dude went home to be with his daughter when she was sick, that was very commendable. Also, just watching how he hasn’t gotten into doing these horrible, horrible attack ads like Mitt Romney’s done against Newt Gingrich, and then the volume at which Newt has gone back at Romney … 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 it’s Rick Santorum.”
