Last night, my daughter messaged me with this news. Reason one: she loves the Boston Bruins. Reason two: she knows I can't stand Obama. Actually, I am pretty sure everyone knows I can't stand Obama. Here's the scoop:
Boston Bruins’ star goaltender Tim Thomas turned down an invitation to the White House visit due to political differences with President Barack Obama. YAY! Looks like SOMEBODY'S got some gonads! Way to Go, Tim!!
Thomas, a Flint, Mich., native and one of only two American players on the Bruins’ Stanley Cup roster last season, was the only Boston player to decline the invitation.
“I believe the Federal government has grown out of control, threatening the Rights, Liberties, and Property of the People,” Thomas said in a statement.
“This is being done at the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial level. This is in direct opposition to the Constitution and the Founding Fathers vision for the Federal government,” he wrote.
“Because I believe this, today (Monday) I exercised my right as a Free Citizen, and did not visit the White House. This was not about politics or party, as in my opinion both parties are responsible for the situation we are in as a country. This was about a choice I had to make as an INDIVIDUAL.”
If only our congress(people) and senators would be brave enough and proud enough to do precisely what Thomas just did.
