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 President Obama in a very awkward moment during his trip to Great Britain, where he blew the toast to the Queen at Buckingham Palace.
Obama began the toast by saying, “To the Queen,” which was the protocol cue to the orchestra to play, “God Save the Queen.” Instead of then waiting for them to finish playing the song, Obama just kept right on talking over “God Save the Queen,” and even got to the point of raising his glass for the toast – But no one moved, because they were waiting for the song to conclude in honor of the Queen! Obama then realized what he had done, put his glass down to wait for the end of the song, and then concluded the toast.
I actually feel sorry for him.
Here is complete video of Queen Elizabeth II’s speech today before the United Nations General Assembly. The Queen spoke 53 years after her last address to the U.N. in 1957. She appealed for world unity and peace.
