    BOSTON (CBS) — Tim Thomas was adamant on Thursday that his Facebook posts are private and have nothing to do with hockey, and he showed on Friday that the public scrutiny will not deter him from posting on his page. Without adding his own belief as an introduction, Thomas posted a quote from former President Ronald Reagan: “I’m convinced that today the majority of Americans want what those first Americans wanted: A better life for themselves and their children; a minimum of government authority. Very simply, they want to be left alone in peace and safety to take care of...

    BUFFALO – Tim Thomas is at it again. The 37-year-old goaltender only just recently rode out the storm created by his decision to skip a White House visit with his Bruins teammates several weeks ago. But on Wednesday he decided to weigh in on a political issue via his Facebook page. Thomas won’t be getting the start against the Buffalo Sabres on Wednesday night at the First Niagara Center, so perhaps he had some extra free time to surf the web and update his social media pages. Thomas wrote out a quick Facebook message hitting on a hot-button political, including...

    OTTAWA -- Boston Bruins goaltender Tim Thomas, who has become something of a political lightning rod lately, weighed in Friday on his beliefs that the federal government is "out of control." Thomas, who's drawn criticism for choosing not to attend the White House ceremony Jan. 23 honoring the reigning Stanley Cup champion team, reiterated that he believes his decision has been blown out of proportion. "[The controversy] is all media-driven and it has been from the start. Everything that I said and did was as an individual. It was not as a representative of the Boston Bruins," Thomas said Friday...

    Tim Thomas, who skipped out on the Bruins White House visit due to his political beliefs, is worse than a cat killer. At least that's what Keith Olbermann thinks, as he labeled Thomas the "Worst Person in the World for Jan. 24, 2012" during Tuesday night's episode of Countdown With Keith Olbermann, as seen in the script and video below. "Find out why Hal Rounds, spokesman for several local tea parties in Tennessee, is WORSE; whoever killed the cat of Jake Burris, the campaign manager for Democrat Ken Aden who is running for the House of Representatives in Arkansas, is...

    Tim Thomas posted the following statement on his Facebook page regarding his decision to not attend a ceremony at the White House to honor the Bruins for their Stanley Cup win last June: "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.

    ...Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli confirmed that Thomas had told him months ago he would not attend the White House event due to his political and ideological differences with the Obama administration. Chiarelli said he had tried to convince Thomas to attend the event "over the last couple months" to no avail. "He chose not to come. The reasons behind it I think he'll make the media aware through his Facebook," said Chiarelli.
