When Tim Thomas is asked about his decision in January not to attend the White House along with his Bruins teammates in celebration of their Stanley Cup victory, he puts a stop to questions as quickly and effectively as he does most slap shots.

But the goalie's refusal to discuss the matter or elaborate further on posts of a political bent on his Facebook page hasn't stopped him from meeting up with like-minded people while the Bruins have some down time in Washington.

Tuesday, during a day off in Boston's first-round playoff series with the Capitals, Thomas visited FreedomWorks, described by Yahoo! Sports's Puck Daddy blog as "a political group founded by former U.S. House Majority Leader Dick Armey that advocates for lower taxes, less government and more freedom, a.k.a. things found on Tim Thomas's Facebook page."

According to the Puck Daddy blog, FreedomWorks vice president Dean Clancy tweeted that Thomas, who posed holding a Ron Paul bumper sticker, explained to the staff why he "declined to visit the Obama White House.''

Presumably, the question wasn't posed by a Bruins beat reporter.
