Hockey Player Recognizes Federal Government Is Out Of Control!
I think it is great that more and more Americans are waking up to realize that the, "Federal government has grown out of control, threatening the Rights, Liberties, and Property of the People." Yes, it truly is both the Republicans and the Democrats. Then again, maybe he just didn't feel like getting groped by the FEDS!

Good for Tim!
This is still a FREE country as far as I know. If a person who is part of a group attends an affair at the White House and goes just because he is part of the team, but disagrees with the policy of the administration, that person is a hipocryte! Good Show Tim! stand up for your beliefs!

Good for Tim
We need more to speak up against the excesses of government.

Too many pucks to the head.
Tim Thomas is a big fan of Glenn Beck. Clearly somethin' ain't right with that boy.

You GO, Boy !!!
Let's not chastise him for being informed (John & Susan). Although he may label his sentiment as non-partisan, I'm sure most of the policies he's referring to were born during the current administration. I'm tired of the robbing of our rights being cloaked in the guise of "hope" and "change". We need do do a little more homework before we vote and not elect someone because they are socially popular, or have the backing of the mainstream media.

Applause for Tim!
Personally, I wouldn't cross the room to meet the current president and stroke his ego. As for whether or not he should be "eligible" to compete in the Olympics, why not? He's an American. Last I checked, political views weren't a requirement for qualification. I wonder how many "liberals" are/were on the Olympic team?

Who Cares???
Does he think that anyone even missed him??

A man of principles!!
Rather you agree with him or not you have to admire his principles. It is his own little protest. There was a time before my mother passed away that she joined the NRA. She had never fired a weapon in her life. That was her own protest against all the gun control laws. It is nice to see a person stict to their principles. If more people like that conducted their own little protests as individual we might be able to cahnge things in governement.

Tim Thomas hates America.
Disrespecting the office of the President shows contempt for all Americans. He should move to Texas or South Carolina and live among his own kind.

A stand up AMERICAN!!!!
This is not about hockey...... It's about time people take a stand for our country, freedom, and our generations to come. "Who cares???" you should because 25 million people are out of work. It affects all of us. Thanks Tim, much appreciated.

...oh right!!
Would he "exercise his rights" and not show up for one of his games because he didn't agree/like some of the goings on in the league? I think not .... just anything to get attention!!

THOMAS FOR PRESIDENT, AND CONGRESS, AND SUPREME COURT...
GOD BLESS HIM. HE IS ABSOLUTELY CORRECT IN HIS REMARKS. I AM HAPPY HE SPOKE HIS MIND AND DID WHAT HE DID AND THERE SHOULDN'T BE ANY REPERCUSIONS FROM THIS. NEELY'S COMMENTS REGARDING THE BRUINS ORG AND THE JACOBS FAMILY "CERTAINLY" NOT REFLECTING THOMAS' VIEW, ARE SAD...THAT NEELY WAS EITHER "OBLIGATED" TO SAY IT AND DID, OR THEY REALLY BELIEVE OTHERWISE!

Give us a break
Quit sucking up to BO. We are ALL entitled to our political opinions.

be a nice thing to tell your grandchildren
oh yes....i had a chance to go and be honored at the white house...and be spoken of highly by the president....but i had better things to do...and didnt go...

Disrespect?
"Disrespecting the office of the President shows contempt for all Americans. He should move to Texas or South Carolina and live among his own kind." Barack Obama seems to be doing a fine job of disrespecting the office of the President all by himself.

Way to go Tim!
How can anyone berate him for doing what he believes in? This is America, I thought we were allowed to have our own thoughts and beliefs, even though Obama would like to take away all of our liberties. As for him liking Glenn Beck, what is wrong with that. I haven't taken any pucks to the head and I agree with Glenn Beck a lot! He is more reliable than the mainstream media.

tim has that right
I now love Timmy Thomas, Tim Tebow and Glen Beck amen to Timmy shame on Jacobs who even went. hope he don't support obama with that silver spoon feed money I would not walk into a treason white house against American people either.

Not Disrespect at all
If i were to be asked to go to the whitehouse my answer would be no thank you. The only way i would go is if The President were to talk to me about rescue centers for pets. Then in that case i would go and take my puppy who i got from a rescue center with me.
