Boston Bruins Goalie Declines Visit To White House For Political Reasons

The backbone of the Boston Bruins 2011 Stanley Cup championship team skipped a visit to the White House due to political differences with President Barack Obama, News Core reported.

According to the news outlet, Tim Thomas, a native of Flint, Mich., 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. “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.”

News Core reported that Obama noted the goalie’s stellar play on the championship run by the Bruins, despite the netminder’s lack of support.

Members of the team’s front office supported the decision by the goalie, as they noted that everyone has a right to voice their opinion, according to the Los Angeles Times.
