No kidding? Geez, you must think I'm a complete moron or something. Personally, I think you read too much into the information posted on this site.
The V-22 is still ahead of its time, if it wasn't, the issues would have been resolved a lot quicker (many are still unresolved). Yes, there are funding problems, etc, but this aircraft is still very complicated systems-wise and likely even more compicated to fly!
I'm surprised you missed the XC-142....
