Yes you do. Down-sampling affects the edge contrast and you will need to add back the sharpness lost to the sampling.
Generally I will process my full rez image, but leave out the final sharpening until I purpose the file for output. In the case of posting in a thread here, I down-sample using Bi-cubic Sharper then tweak it a bit more with Smart Sharpen before saving.
