Is Fred Thompson lazy?

In short: Depends on who you ask!

More from Yahoo! News:

CELEBRATION, Fla. – Defending his campaign work schedule, Republican presidential hopeful Fred Thompson said Monday his strategy is working and “I’m going to do it the way I want to do it.”

His absences in early-voting states have been noticed. Thompson hasn’t been in South Carolina in more than a month, he scrapped a recent trip to New Hampshire and then canceled a news conference Saturday in Florida.

“You can name a lot of places that I haven’t been, and you can name a lot of places that I have been several times,” Thompson said in an interview with The Associated Press.

“I’ve been to Florida three or four times,” he said. “The mainstream media, with all due respect, likes to concentrate on the process game on a daily basis, and I can’t get caught up in that. I’m going to do it the way I want to do it.”

All-in-all, he has not been very active on the campaign trail. I guess that depends how you measure candidates against each other. He’s currently polling 2nd, does he need to be more active? I’d say yes since he’s not polling 1st, I’d think that would go for any candidate.

However, Thompson’s staunchest supporters seem to be getting desperate for a change.
