The Laziness Of Fred Thompson, Cont'd

By and

I think Mitt Romney's calling Fred Thompson lazy. From The Examiner:

"Can he raise the money? Will he do the work it takes to become the president?" Romney asked. "To beat Hillary Clinton, you're going to have to raise a lot of money. You're going to have to work like crazy."

This is obviously the rap against Thompson among political journalists and other Beltway types. It's interesting to see an actual candidate saying it, too. Of course, it's an easy enough charge for Thompson to rebut. All he needs to do is work hard. But, so far, that's something he's been unwilling to do.
