Will he now ask Mother Nature for a redistribution of rain & snow? Makes more sense than wealth.

I suspect that water pipelines from the snow and ice covered areas from the midwest to the northeast, combined with desalination plants along the Pacific and Gulf coasts would be better than discussions. Unfortunately, Obama is a community organizer who gives the US more of the same failed policies of previous politicians. He tried to extend the debacles in Irag and Afghanistan, tried to intervene in Syria after the Libyan debacle, and wasted trips to the Gulf coast for photo ops during the Deep Water Horizon spill like Bush did after Katrina. He was acceptable during Sandy because the storm was just north of Washington where massive resources were available. The best way to get good responses from Obama is to have the disaster happen at his front door. Unfortunately, the disasters may not come to him if or when he calls them.
