[Renly] feasts every night in a different castle, and holds court at every crossroads he passes […] Our father at Harrenhal, Robb Stark at Riverrun - were I him, I would do much as he is doing. Make my progress, flaunt my power for the realm to see, watch, wait. Let my rivals contend why I bide my own sweet time. If Stark defeats us, the South will fall into Renly’s hands like a windfall from the gods, and he’ll not have lost a man. And if it goes the other way, he can descend on us why we are weakened.

Tyrion Lannister, A Clash of Kings

This quote is bought to you by someone who is fed up with those that base their criticisms of Renly on how he doesn’t immediately launch an attack on the Lannisters.
