Could this be accurate? NY Times says Thompson is taking the week off from campaigning, contending Thompson will have no public appearances this week. I find that hard to believe frankly. I buy the part about being short on details and not having had as strenuous a schedule as his competitors, but leaving the field the week after his inaugural week would be ludicrous and could panic supporters.
UPDATE: A rival campaign pounced on the (potential) news, declaring: “His work ethic was questioned in the Senate- I don’t know why anyone thought it would be different this time.”
UPDATE II: As I suspected, Todd Harris says “no” to my question as to whether the NY Times story about no public events is accurate. No answer yet to the obvious follow up as to where Thompson will be or what stops he has planned for the week. (It may be that the NY Times asked what was on tap and the response was “we don’t have anything yet” –which may bespeak a lack of planning/organization rather than a lack of willingness by Thompson to get out on the stump.)
