The F-22 is a hell of a fighter jet, so Senator Saxby Chambliss was pushing for more of these fine jets to be built, well the White House, John McCain, most Democrats, and even a few idiotic Republicans voted to end the building of new F-22 fighter jets, because of the new F-35.
I wonder if these fools pay attention to anything. Luckily for those that read this political blog, I your humble author, does.
1.The F-35 will not even be used until 2011, and because building new weaponry is a very long process - it could be delayed even longer. So it just makes sense to build new F-22 fighter jets until we have the new system, because being safe instead of attacked is always a good National Security plan.
2.Have these guys heard of the North Korean missile threat? Have these guys heard of the Iranian nuclear weapon threat? Have these guys heard that our ally Israel is planning to attack Iran, and that limiting our Air Force over the next two years - might be a bad idea.
3.I believe in fiscal Conservatism, I also believe we need to spend as much as possible on National Security. Spending two billion dollars on 7 F-22 fighter jets is a good investment. 2 trillion dollars on socialism, lost Freedom, and ruining the greatest health care system in the world is a bad investment.
I currently do not have the roll call for this vote, however I know that 15 idiotic Republicans voted for this, and that 25 Republicans, a few Democrats, and Joe Lieberman also voted against destroying the F-22 funding for the next few years. This vote will now move to the House of Representatives, hopefully Republicans will stand united on F-22 National Security.
