President Obama has constantly visited Walter Reed and has shown nothing but respect to our Troops. He has honored the dead by greeting them reverently as their bodies have returned home. He is working tirelessly with our military officials. The Seals are responding to his leadership. He even visited the Pentagon which was unheard of by past presidents. No one ever stated anything when previous presidents have gone golfing. The racism in america needs to stop. The hate speech in america needs to stop. tim thomas needs to grow up and learn to show respect to the office of the president. Future games should be boycotted. Who needs to see someone play that does not show any respect to their Commander in Chief? I refuse to show any respect with him with even a capital letter. If he has children, he is a bad example to them and shows no leadership. His absence was inexcusable.
.... how did u feel when athelets boycotted bush's invites??........ i dont know why thomas would want to go, acc to o'blamer he makes too much $$, he hasnt earned it, he doesnt pay his fair share,he stole it, why would he want to go? plus u know how much o hates coroprations like the nhl? boston bruins? he's one of the evil 1% that the left speaks of maybe? i didnt hear thomas say he didnt respect the office, i think he doesnt respect o'blamer, he loves his country, never see him burn a flag i bet .... thats his choice, i stand with his freedom of choice..... not to mention o said "repubs are the enemy to hispanics", which is disrespectful from the commander in chief, maybe thomas is a repub, and didnt want to be insulted again..... i think we should boycott the pres speech's, and its not nice that o, since he has kids, shouldnt tell us repubs are any kind of enemy.... alqeada, taliban are enemys... i bet atleast 40% of americans are repubs, not the enemy..... william ayers, now hes and enemy, is he a repub?... if thomas joins alqeada, then he should be an issue.... o has enough problems, thomas isnt one of them
