Obama plans to be out of the country for 12 days following midterm election

Via radio host and Examiner contributor Rob Port, I see that rather than face scrutiny after an ugly election for Democrats, Obama is planning an extended visit to his Southeast Asian Fortress of solitude:

US President Barack Obama is likely to arrive in India on November 5 instead of November 7 as originally scheduled. He will leave Washington DC on the night of November 4 soon after the mid-term Congressional election where many pundits are predicting severe reverses for the Democratic Party.

He will be away from the US for almost 12 days, one of the longest tours during his presidency, touching India, Indonesia, Japan, and South Korea, before returning to Washington DC on November 14.

This show of solidarity has really got to be inspiring to the Democratic troops, no?
