I wonder how the Republicans are going to foul this up in an effort to embarrass Obama and keep him from ANY 'victory'. Who cares if the country goes to hell as long as they can keep their ideology.

Dude. The country is going to hell because of the current occupant of the White House's policies. And well the brainless automatons who elected him. Any "victory" for the current occupant is defeat for America.

The public blamed re-pubic-lick-uns for gov't shut downs. Of course, minority re-pubic-lick-uns, who retain power by "jimmied gerrymandering", love to point fingers, but NOT at themselves. "jimmied up" is the re-pubic-lick-un puffed "pointer", & thinks it will be more comfortable in Hell, with the entire country.

Expect they are scheduling a retreat to figure out ways to obstruct and destroy.

The only question who will be the spokesman - pauly? Cruzzie?

Hard to say. Who would want the job now? Cruz might want it but even the radicals would run from him. Cris Christie might if he survives the bridgegate. Other than that, the party is pretty sad shape. It used to be the party of science until the bible thumping white power loons got in.

The real issue here is how to get MORE water. The demand outstrips supply by a WIDE margin even in good years.

I would suggest that the mountains are an ally. Put up a LOT of wind farms that deliver their power to 'forward osmosis' desalination plants for bulk water. Use reverse osmosis for some drinking water.

OR build NAWAPA. Energy AND water security are now up there in the priorities
