BLITZER’S BLOG: Pres. Obama in full campaign mode

(CNN) – President Obama is now in full re-election campaign mode. If there was any doubt, just check out the campaign speeches he delivered Wednesday night at three separate fundraising events in Chicago.

“I’ve said before, I’m not a perfect man,” he told one Chicago group. “I’m not a perfect president. But I’ve promised you this, and I’ve kept this promise. I will always tell you what I believe. I will always tell you where I stand. I will wake up every single day thinking about how I can make this country better, and I will spend every ounce of energy that I have fighting for you.”

    I have seen and heard a lot of Presidents in my time. This is the worst one in the history of the country. Most Americans like myself bought into the hope and change message as well as the promises and the idealism. Now three years later the country is steep in debt, more folks are unemployed than ever before, more homes being foreclosed, more families and children in crises than ever, and more Americans (40%) in poverty than ever before and our President comforts us by saying"it could be worse". We'll how worse does it have to be America before we say enough is enough. It is time to recognize we are past speeches and words. We need a change in policies, direction, and actions to get this country working again and back on its feet. It is time to move on and elect someone else who can deliver us from this depression and restore America once again to prosperity and greatness. The 2012 election gives us that opportunity.
