Here is video of Great Britain’s Prince Charles dedicating “Dumfries House,” a stately home he has helped to save and preserve for the nation. In the course of the video, Charles is asked if he is “impatient,” and he gives a candid response about what it is like to be 64 years old and still waiting to be King – with his mother, Queeen Elizabeth II, still reigning at the age of 86: “Yes, of course I am. Um, I’ll run out of time soon. I shall have snuffed it, if I’m not careful.”
UK TELEGRAPH: In a series of remarkably candid comments, Prince Charles hinted that he feared his legacy as king would be cut short.
During a visit to Dumfries House, the stately home in East Ayrshire which the Prince helped save for the nation, he joked about his reputation for pursuing projects with notorious vigour but made a poignant reference to his mortality. He said: “Impatient? Me? What a thing to suggest! Yes of course I am.” He added: “I’ll run out of time soon. I shall have snuffed it if I’m not careful.”
The comments, which were recorded for a film on the Clarence House website about the Prince’s involvement with Dumfries House, will fuel ongoing speculation that Prince Charles, 64, is more eager than ever to take the throne after 60 years of waiting. . . . Read More

Here is video of Rush Limbaugh today taking apart piece by piece Obama’s gaffe yesterday in botching the toast to Great Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II. Limbaugh goes through it in great detail. About half way through the audio, the video is provided of Obama’s gaffe, followed by more of Rush Limbaugh’s commentary. Rush points out that if this had been George W. Bush, it would have been a major breach of protocol and an international incident. But with Obama, the media is busy trying to rehabilitate him, making it everyone else’s fault.
Rush could not be more right.

Here is video of British Foreign Secretary William Hague announcing that Libya’s Foreign Minister – Moussa Koussa – has abandoned Moammar Gadhafi and defected to Great Britain. He also said the defection is a sign that the regime of Dictator Moammar Gadhafi is “crumbling,” and that it is time for Gadhafi “to go.”
With the United Nations Security Council approving a no-fly zone over Libya – along with airstrikes – to stop Libyan Dictator Moammar Gadhafi, reports tonight indicate that the first airstrikes could happen within hours, and will likely be carried out by the British and the French:
BBC’s Mark Mardell: . . . . I am told the first strikes will be unilateral ones by British and French aircraft. They could be in the air within hours. It is likely five Arab air forces will take part. Hillary Clinton has said it will mean bombing Libyan air defences. Nato will step up if asked but could take a while. . . . . Read More
