Missing Admin Bar in WordPress

I just installed WordPress and after installing a theme I liked I noticed that it was missing the Admin Bar on the public portion of the site.

A quick google search turned up the answer in the WordPress Support Forums:

[note color=”#DDD”][quote style=”1″]Most likely wp_footer is missing from footer.php. If it is, try adding <?php wp_footer();> to that file just before <?body></html>. [/quote][/note]

That totally worked, but I wonder why the theme wasn’t including the footer?
