Others have caught on to the fact that Thompson isn’t doing much retail politics. On one hand, the “he’s lazy” crowd will seize on this as evidence he is on cruise control, but I think something else is going on. It simply isn’t worth the grief he gets from local press and the gaffe a day theme to do small retail events in states at this point. Better to do some easy interviews on Fox (one next week), prepare for the next debate, meet privately with groups he is trying to woo and stay low for a bit. In the home stretch he’ll need to be visible, but for now, why bother?
