"I believe the federal government has grown out of control, threatening the rights, liberties, and property of the people," Thomas said.
Thomas, described as a political conservative and talk show enthusiast, said his action was not directed at President Obama himself, saying all of government is abusing its power.
"This is being done at the executive, legislative, and judicial level," Thomas said. "This is in direct opposition to the Constitution and the Founding Fathers vision for the federal government."
"Because I believe this, today 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."
I love this:
Bruins General Manager Peter Chiarelli said Thomas' position does not reflect the views of the team, but he will not suspend Thomas.
Isn't that nice of them?
Having an unfavorable opinion of the Obama Administration won't cause anybody to be disciplined at their job.
There are two of us in Massachusetts that are very relieved about this!
It's almost as if the country still has a Constitution?
