Read Tim Thomas's Odd Explanation For Skipping The Bruins' Day At The White House, And Then Back Slowly AwayS

Here's the 2011 Conn Smythe and Vezina winner, pamphleteering online:

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

Thomas said once that Glenn Beck was the person he'd most like to have dinner with. So we know what kind of politics motivated him to blow Obama off.

But his disruptive tactics caused a stir on a national stage. Seems like someone is taking a page out of Saul Alinsky's playbook!
