He stayed until Robert went North. He does not need to defend himself while Robert is alive and in power. The Lannisters cannot attack with impunity and not that they could reach him anyway at Dragonstone and with the Royal Fleet. Fair enough on the first point, he hung around in the hope Robert would invest some trust and real power in him but no he was left completely isolated. Robert lived and ruled while JA was killed. The Lannisters literally did start a war Robert didn't allow them while he lived and ruled. There is a likelihood the secret will begin a war and he believes the Lannisters have a target on his back, that Stannis gathered strength is a perfectly reasonable response to his situation, that it meant he knew they would murder Robert is a nowhere leap.
