BLITZER’S BLOG: Obama showing more fire in the belly

(CNN) – Some relatively good numbers for President Obama are in our new CNN/ORC International Poll. His job approval number is now 49%, up from 44% in November. That’s not fabulous but it’s certainly moving in the right direction for him.

The overwhelming majority of the American public likes him, as well. In the new poll, 76% say they approve of him as a person; only 19% disapprove.

    The allegation against obama, that he was too inexperience to be an effective president, may have been proven true. A jury of his peers will begin deliberating over the next few months on the load of evidence against him presented by a robust persecution team known as the gop and will render its verdict in november. As for the defense team, the only thing they had going for him was that he was busy campaigning over the passed years, so may have been able to influence a few members of the jury to come down on his side. But in this particular case, all the persecution needs is a majority of the jury to agree with them so as to win the case. Already, in the court of public opinion, Obama has been tried and found wanting.

    I would sooner vote for a trained monkey than 4 more years of this clown. He does nothing but play basketball, take vacations and hold celebrity concerts. Don't get me wrong, none of the Republicans are electable but my God 4 more years of this clown, there will be nothing left of this once great country.

    I've been voting Dem since I was 18 Yrs. in 1970. I will die a Democrate! For those of you who have had thier heads in the sand, take a good hard look at this congress. Just about everything The President has sent them has been shredded and rejected except for the bailouts ( that was because they were scared) and health care ( Haven't figured out that one yet). Since Congress is responsible for passing laws (Which they haven't done) not the president , he can send bills, suggest bills, sign them or veto them, he can't pass bills into law. Only the boobs on capital hill can do that.
    He's been sending and the do-do's have been turning their collective noses up. It's not Obama but it is congress.
    Besides thay have made up their collective minds that the first African-American President will be a failure and it doesn;t matter how much they say that they are not racisit , action speaks louder the words or in their case no action.

    It seems that the editorial column in our local paper and many of the Democratic responses on this site seem think it's appropriate to call the Republican candidates mocking type of names. This is no way for adults to act. Please present your well thought out point and back it up with facts. Name calling went out in the 5th grade. Thanks for listening.
