'Batman' Massacre Victim

To Megadeth Singer:

Don't BLAME Obama!

EXCLUSIVE

Megadeth singer Dave Mustaine is an idiot ... because Barack Obama is not to blame for the Aurora massacre ... so says one of the people who was shot in the theater that night.

TMZ spoke with Carli Richards ... who sustained multiple gunshot wounds when James Holmes opened fire during a screening of "Dark Knight Rises" last month.

After watching the footage of Mustaine blaming Obama for "staging" the Aurora shooting to push an anti-gun agenda, Richards is lashing back ... telling us, "Some people think the President is a good scapegoat but he didn't shoot me."

Richards adds, "It’s obviously kind of absurd and people who make up conspiracies just want attention."

"Everybody is emotional at this time and needs to blame somebody I guess. I don’t think they realize the consequences of not being responsible for your own actions and James Holmes needs to be held accountable for his, to whatever way the justice system deems fit."

Don't blame Obama, but people please don't blame Warner Bros or the theater; James Holmes needs to take full responsibility here....we always blame everyone for one fool's actions.

Right or left and whatever your views on guns is does not matter. If you make an insane statement like he did you are simply nuts.

Dave Mustaine is far from an idiot, he's intelligent, analytical, thoughtful and usually fairly balanced about politics.
Obama is, in fact, a Washington puppet....so was Bush....they're just puppets for the mega-rich and military industrial complex, arms industry, weaponry manufacturers, puppets used to steal more money from taxpayers...moms and dads with kids to feed who can't afford their mortgage or grocery bills anymore.
Sorry to burst your bubble, really I am, if you hope in Obama and believe he's this innocent sweet little family man.
He ain't, Obama has as much blood on his hands as Bush...and Clinton, and he has no problem sacrificing young men on the battlefields of war to increase his own power and wealth.

In addition to being a lifelong drug addict an alcoholic, Dave Mustaine is just a dim bulb.
