    Under 2 billion dollar is inexcusable?

    I think I just died laughing.

    Stick a fork in it, boys. This monster’s dead…

    Now for the conference committee… damn this process takes a long time.

    And the appropriators! Don’t forget the Senate appropriators! They haven’t even taken up their defense bill yet. More F-22s could re-surface there, but the odds of success are a lot longer now. Meanwhile the House has already added $360 million for long-lead on 12 more F-22s.

    Well, it’ll give us more stuff to write about I suppose… I don’t expect the Raptor’s supporters to give up the fight.

    I hope Big Man Obama is ready to use that veto pen, because some f-22s will likely get stuffed in an appropriations bill in the wee hours.

    …there is also strong bipartisan support to buy more f-22′s. With all do respect Mr Obama, you have no experience to run this country. Pathetic!

    One of the main reasons Obama gets away with what is obviously a moronic statement about waste is twofold. 1) He thinks the American people are stupid and don’t know the difference between million, billion and trillion and; 2) The media will cover for him. You will hear stories that $1.75 billion is the largest number ever invented that scientists cannot even describe how large the number is, but, a trillion for healthcare socialization and $787 billion for the stimulas are just itty bitty numbers.
