Just what is predatory lending? It is lending that charges a higher interest rate than people like those at the New York Times approve of.

Byron York Byron York: The Audacity of Greg Orman

Since when did, Im offended, become an argument that trumps all facts, logic and common sense? When did regularly claiming to be aggrieved on behalf of some splinter of the population become a high paying gig? How did we get to a point in America where people are PROUD to tell you that theyre victims?

Michael Barone Michael Barone: Does the End of History Result in Political Decay?

Lisa De Pasquale Lisa De Pasquale: De Pasquale’s Dozen with Congressman Paul Ryan

When the history of the 2012 elections is written, I hope it will show that my small part was being the first person to use the hashtag #VP90X when Paul Ryan was announced as the vice presidential nominee. Known for his wonkiness as much as his workouts, Congressman Paul Ryan is the rare person who isnt afraid to buck the image of the one-dimensional politician.

Phyllis Schlafly Phyllis Schlafly: Republicans Need Tools for 2014 Victory
