SHAME ON YOU for trying to start another A vs. B war! (just kidding ) Although I, myself would prefer to see more U.S. airlines buy Boeing, the editor's position was myopic, given Jet Blue was already an established Airbus customer. Jet Blue selected the A320 for whatever reason, good deal, preference for fly-by-wire, etc. Political/nationalistic concerns should never supercede an airline's own business reasons for selecting an aircraft type-and this should apply to European and other airlines, as well as U.S. ones.
