Sea Bat - Here is one of my favorites from Churchill when he was addressing the U. S Congress and made reference to his half American parentage:
Child of the House of Commons"
I am a child of the House of Commons. I was brought up in my father's house to believe in democracy. Trust the people - that was his message....I cannot help reflecting that if my father had been American and my mother British, instead of the other way around, I might have got here on my own....I owe my advancement entirely to the House of Commons, whose servant I am. In my country, as in yours, public men are proud to be the servants of the State and would be ashamed to be its masters. -
Speech made to a Joint Session of the American Congress, December 26, 1941. Churchill went to America after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. He predicted a "long and hard war." His speech was broadcast throughout the US, Canada and Britain.
