Dave Mustaine On Rick Santorum: 'A JFK Kind Of Guy'

Lead singer of metal band Megadeth Dave Mustaine talks about his political beliefs, including his thoughts on the Republican presidential primaries, and his skepticism about the birthplace of US President Barack Obama.

He'll be on the show tonight, along with author and journalist Linden MacIntyre.

On the Republican primaries:
Dave Mustaine: It's such a disappointment watching what's happening right now. 'Cause, George Soros came out and said that Mitt Romney is just like Obama, so, I mean, what do you got there? You've got Obama's mentor saying that Mitt Romney is like him and he's leading the polls now. And Newt Gingrich who's just so completely angry right now that he's just sputtering... to me, the guy that makes the most sense out of all those guys is Rick Santorum... he just looked like he could be a really cool President, kind of like a JFK kind of guy.
