...by far most of the money Boeing makes from the taxpayers is in defense contracts, on which Boeing still executes quite well. 

Ehhh....

I subbed for Boeing on a sliver of Future Contract Combat Systems, and it was a disaster.  Bad implementations of bad designs, poor project management, technical decisions driven by politics, etc.  We bodged together something that sort of worked most of the time if your expectations were low, and it was junked almost immediately upon delivery. 

They may execute well in other defense areas, but what I saw was pretty bad.

That sounds like a miserable project.  Let's say Boeing executes well enough on its defense contracts to stay in business.
