    F-35, now budgeted at $1.3 TRILLION, for ONE system! Debt at the end of "W"s final budget: $12.9 Trillion.

    He’s a Republican, so it doesn’t matter.

    Btw what a stupid commercial by Barry’s boys. “My first time…..”. Really? Watch out girls! He’ll promise to take care you and the baby, give you a good job and stop spending all of your money, but after 4 years you’ll find out it was ALL TALK.

    @ConserveGov

    What on Earth will you and all the other ultra conservatives here do if President Obama wins this election?

    Maybe I’m just weird, but I thought it was kind of cute and funny.

    The cartoon is half right. There is no disputing that $5 trillion was added to the debt. However, I hold the entire House and Senate responsible as much as I do Obama. And of them, the most guilty are the senior members of both parties, those that have been in office for multiple terms.

    @Respectful Troll

    Candidates for prom king wouldn’t verbally abuse and lie about each other like R and O do.

    /bows to mikefive
    My apologies to ALL prom kings, past and present and future, for my vulgar insult upon the honor given you by you schools. I l liked every prom king I even knew.
    You guys stand head and shoulders above these candidates.

    Skip, unfortunately, 4th grade arithmetic get in the way of your claim.. The national debt was about $10 trillion on 9/30/2008 and $11.9 trillion on 9/20/2009. Any 4th grader knows that today’s $16 trillion is not more than double. Not liking Obama does not make your imagination factual.

    denis: that $1.3 trillion IS for time, 20, purchase and “maintenance”, not 50 years, and delivery now of roughly 250 airframes, not 2,500. All the other countries signed on for JSF are backing out of their agreements. Don’t worry, our taxpayers will be put on the hook to make sure Lockheed, and the Cheney’s get their money to keep them off the soup lines. Every issue of Aviation Week seems to have another article on the failures of this aircraft to meet timelines, budgets, and performance requirements.
