Default Obama likes Metallica more then Megadeth

Sheesh, it sure is a bad time to be Dave Mustaine. After declaring during a recent interview that “I know [President Barack Obama] was born somewhere else than America,” the Megadeth main man first got an earful from GWAR’s Oderus Urungus; now President Obama himself has spoken out against Mustaine, making some pretty damning accusations of his own.

It’s no secret that Obama is a metalhead; a couple of years ago, he weighed in on the state of The Dillinger Escape Plan, too. Still, the Prez so rarely talks about metal in public, it’s always still kind of surprising when he does.

When asked during a press conference earlier today if he’d heard about Mustaine’s comments, here’s what President Obama had to say:
“Dave Mustaine has a lot of questions about me? Well I have a lot of questions about him! How do we know he really had anything to do with those songs on [Metallica's] Kill ‘Em All and Ride the Lightning? I didn’t see him write them, did you? I’m not questioning it, I just… I know he didn’t write any of those riffs. How come he was invisible until he became whatever he was in Megadeth?”
Ouch. I guess the good news is, Obama probably has James Hetfield’s vote now?
