    Like so many teenagers, Jonathan Krohn says he cringes when he thinks of some of the deeply uncool things he said when he was 13. Unlike most teenagers, Krohn said those things on camera in a speech at the 2009 Conservative Political Action Conference, making him a YouTube sensation. Now? Krohn tells Politico's Patrick Gavin he's not a conservative anymore. He likes gay marriage and Obamacare. He's going to New York University in the fall. He name drops German philosophers. But his old fans can't accept that he's changed. "Come on, I was thirteen," he told Politico. "I was thirteen."

    Jonathan Krohn took the political world by storm at 2009’s Conservative Political Action Conference when, at just 13 years old, he delivered an impromptu rallying cry for conservatism that became a viral hit and had some pegging him as a future star of the Republican Party. Now 17, Krohn — who went on to write a book, “Defining Conservatism,” that was blurbed by the likes of Newt Gingrich and Bill Bennett — still watches that speech from time to time, but it mostly makes him cringe because, well, he’s not a conservative anymore.

    WHAT PART OF 'PARTY OF NO' DON'T YOU UNDERSTAND?February 24, 2010Inasmuch as Obamacare has a snowball's chance in hell of passing (but did you see how much snow they got in hell last week?), everyone is wondering what President Obama is up to by calling Republicans to a televised Reykjavik summit this week to discuss socializing health care. At least they served beer at the last White House summit this stupid and pointless. If the president is serious about passing nationalized health care, he ought to be meeting with the Democrats, not the Republicans. Republicans can't stop the Democrats from...

    Here is video of 14 year-old conservative prodigy Jonathan Krohn debating Health Care with Columbia University professor Dr. Marc Lamont Hill. The two appeared on Fox News.com's "Morning Click," which appears to be a web-only program (not positive about that). Krohn said one policeman estimated the 9/12 March on Washington crowd at 1.5 million people. Marc Lamont Hill said the movement is "real," and said Obama did not acknowledge it because he does not want to impede momentum on his Health Care drive. Harris Faulkner is the Fox host. Krohn even suggested to Hill that they do a "Hannity and...

    Here is video from the 9/12 March on Washington showing what it was like to be in the middle of the crowd. At around the 2:29 mark of the video, it also shows 14 year-old Conservative sensation Jonathan Krohn speaking to the crowd, and getting off some really good lines about Obama's teleprompter and CNN's Anderson Cooper! Here's video of Krohn's sensational speech at CPAC earlier this year. (VIDEO)

    WOW ! ... A 13-year-old, Jonathan Krohn, has put Jeb Bush, and all of the other Rhinos in their place ... wrong side of history. Conservative Political Action Conference speaker, Jonathan, is extremely disappointed in Jeb Bush, and others that ignore the wisdom of the past. He said that the Republican Party should NOT listen to those saying that "Reagan era is dead, and gone ... and for Conservatives must go with new ideas, and forget the past". Jonathan said that we should learn from the past and take advantage of what we learned is GOOD, as in Reagain's Conservative...

    Here is video of the best interview yet with GOP Boy Wonder Jonathan Krohn. I somehow missed this one. It was done back in mid-March on CBS News' Face the Nation, with Bob Schieffer. It is outstanding. Schieffer gets Jonathan to reveal more about how he came to write his book on conservatism, how he self-published it, and what he wants to do when he grows up. Scheiffer's amazement at Jonathan is well worth watching! . . . . . (Watch Video)

    This is that conservative kid we saw at CPAC articulating American values better than most elected members of the GOP. I find it ironic that he gives such props to Michael Steele, who could learn a thing or two from this kid about defending our ideals. I also find it disturbing that while this kid can't vote, Keith Olbermann can and does.

    ... [Jonathan Krohn] turned 14 last Sunday, right after he became an instant news media darling and the conservative movement’s underage graybeard at last weekend’s Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington. ... Jonathan, a slight, home-schooled only child whose teeth are in braces, is so passionate about his beliefs that he spent his summer writing “Define Conservatism,” an 86-page book outlining what he says are its core values. ... He’s an unusual kid with an unusual background. Jonathan’s parents, Doug, a computer systems integrator, and Marla, a sales representative and former actress who teaches drama and speech to middle-school students,...

    The 13 year-old Conservative Prodigy Jonathan Krohn has now turned 14 -- today (Happy Birthday!)! Krohn wowed CPAC the other day with his speech there. He appeared on Fox and Friends this morning where he predicted a Republican victory in 2012 at the rate President Barack Obama is going. Krohn says he thinks Obama will turn out to be another Jimmy Carter, and that Mitt Romney, Sarah Palin or Bobby Jindal will have an "easy time" winning in 2012. This kid articulates the conservative message in an amazingly clear way. And he has something Republicans need right now besides the...

    Here is video of an amazing young man, Jonathan Krohn, who simply "wowed" em at CPAC yesterday! He is 13 years old and has written a book that sets forth the four key categories of principles that define conservatism: (1) Respect for the Constitution (2) Respect for Life (3) Less Government (4) Personal Responsibility. He only had two minutes to speak at CPAC, but he used them better than most speakers do with 30 minutes! This video was uploaded to YouTube by Doug Krohn, who I assume is closely related (Dad?) to Jonathan. NOTE: In about 22 years, we may...
