Laura Ingraham, sitting in for Bill O'Reilly, interviewed Jeri Thompson, wife of Republican Presidential candidate Fred Thompson. I thought the interview went very well but of course Laura had to bring up the "lazy" charge. (No criticism of Laura, it's out there and must be addressed.)
Here is what the Editors at National Review had to say about Fred Thompson (my emphasis):
Fred Thompson may have started his presidential campaign late, but he is the first candidate in either party to come out with solid plans to reform Social Security and immigration. And while most candidates have called for increasing the size of the military, Thompson laid out a detailed plan to achieve that end in a Tuesday speech at the Citadel Military College. On these issues, Thompson has set a standard for specificity, conservatism, and soundness that we would like to see the other Republican candidates measure up to.
It’s obvious why conservatives see something to like in Thompson. He has offered clear, conservative ideas on fixing Social Security, policing immigration, and expanding the military. We encourage the other candidates to follow his lead.
Follow his lead.
I guess if you can't find anything substantial to criticize, or take the time to offer "clear, conservative ideas", your best bet is to play the lazy card.
