Tim Thomas Snubs Obama; Fed Gov't "Out of Control"

The Boston Bruins were at the White House today celebrating their Stanley Cup victory. Everyone except MVP goalie Tim Thomas. Thomas protested Obama due to the out-of-control federal government. From his Facebook page, via Hotair:

“I believe the Federal government has grown out of control, threatening the Rights, Liberties, and Property of the People.

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.

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.

This is the only public statement I will be making on this topic. TT”

Ok, so it's not about parties, but come on - which party is more responsible for threatening the rights, liberties and property of the people? This was his attempt at being non-partisan to his liberal fans. Coming from a Stanley Cup MVP, this is quite a statement.
