    Support Boeing in creating American jobs

    So with the government looking at new tankers, Airbus is throwing themselves in the fight. Although Airbus makes perfectly good airplanes, I feel that for a US government purchase, the money should go to a US manufacturer

    Boeing makes a far superior aircraft, true.

    I'm still pissed at our State for running them off.

    I'll add that if Airbus wins, it will mean a $600 mil, 1500 person factory will be built in Mobile Al. Also, if they get the tanker contract, they will also add a commercial airline factory line alongside the tankers, for more of an investment in Alabama. California based Northrop Grunman is a bidding partner with EADS.

    I don't think moving jobs around is creating jobs.
