Gingrich to Obama: Take Some Time Off and Go Walk in the Woods or Something

Just what a guy who's taken about a dozen vacations this year needs: More time off.
President Obama should take off most of the rest of the year to concentrate on the lessons of the 2010 election, former Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) said Tuesday.

Gingrich urged the president to take some time away from Washington to reflect on how he might pivot in the next two years to work with the new Republican-controlled House.

"I think it’ll be really healthy for him if he could take off from Thanksgiving through most of December and really think," Gingrich told "The Brody File" on the Christian Broadcasting Network. "I mean walk on the beach or walk in the woods or whatever he likes doing but get away from the daily business and try to reflect on what happened."

Gingrich hearkened back to what President Reagan and President George W. Bush had done to escape Washington with some frequency during their time in office, and urged Obama to do the same. Each president had famously spent time on their respective ranches, clearing brush or riding horses.
Maybe Tony Rezko could help finance a ranch for Obama.

Oh, wait...
