BLITZER'S BLOG: When will President Obama start naming names?

(CNN) – Vice President Joe Biden is now willing to name names in going after Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich. President Obama is now increasingly willing to go after them but he’s still avoiding naming names.

Here’s how he criticized Romney on health care mandates this week in an interview with Public Radio International.

BLITZER'S BLOG: What to expect at a contested convention

(CNN) – Mitt Romney may be in the driver's seat right now but there is still a chance he won't be able to amass the 1,144 delegates needed to win the Republican presidential nomination before the party convention in Tampa at the end of August.

If he comes up short, there could be a contested convention. That means the delegates actually would have to vote on the convention floor for the nominee.

BLITZER'S BLOG: 'Game Change' doesn’t disappoint

(CNN) – Washington insiders were at the Newseum last night to see the new HBO film, “Game Change,” about Sarah Palin and the 2008 race for the White House.

I really wasn’t sure what to expect but I was very impressed with the finished product. It kept my interest for the entire two hours.

Blitzer's Blog: Tough contests ahead for Romney

(CNN) - The next few Republican presidential contests probably won't bring very much good news for front-runner Mitt Romney.

Rick Santorum is expected to do well in the Kansas caucuses on Saturday. Santorum and Newt Gingrich probably get a lot of votes in the Alabama and Mississippi primaries next Tuesday.

BLITZER'S BLOG: Millions have already spoken

(CNN) - Even though the pundits and the headlines say Mitt Romney is only limping towards the delegates he needs, when you look at the popular vote the lines are a little more clearly drawn. The math seems to be in Romney’s favor, though none of the other candidates seem to be thinking about dropping out.

So far since Iowa and including the ten contests of Super Tuesday, 8,257,860 Americans have voted in the Republican presidential primaries and caucuses. That’s a lot of people who have spoken out.

BLITZER'S BLOG: What Israel Really Wants

(CNN) – I’m skeptical that the Israelis are getting ready to bomb Iran’s nuclear facilities. In the end, they might do it. But I suspect they are not yet ready to do so anytime soon.

That’s because they are talking so much about it. If they were really ready to move their F-15s and F-16s and their submarine-launched missiles against targets in Iran, they would be a lot more quiet.

BLITZER'S BLOG: Will Michigan voters swing in Romney’s favor?

(CNN) – It’s a fair question that more and more people are asking: Why is Mitt Romney having such a hard time nailing down the Republican presidential nomination?

He certainly has raised the most money and has the largest and most experienced campaign staff.

BLITZER'S BLOG: Is it wise to keep spending billions in Afghanistan?

(CNN) - It's hard to believe but American taxpayers are still shelling out $2 billion a week in Afghanistan. That adds up to more than $100 billion a year.

Maintaining a U.S. military presence in Afghanistan of nearly 100,000 U.S. troops is certainly not cheap.

BLITZER'S BLOG: It’s going to get nasty!

(CNN) – If you think it’s been a rough ride for the Republican candidates during this current campaign season, just wait. This will be seen as child’s play once the general election campaign begins.

I’ve said this before but I’ll say it again: the war of words between President Obama and his campaign supporters versus the eventual Republican nominee and his supporters will be fierce.
