Another day and another failed posturing attempt by the waning GOP.
McCain, the Arizona Republican who was Obama's rival for the White House in last year's election, questioned the president about the cost of the new helicopter fleet on Monday.Of course, Barack Obama (who has cancelled the order) did not order those planes.
