blur is a post processing effect, in openGL you can only draw on polygons.. and polygons don't have blurred edges. :)

To perform blurring you have to render the scene in a frame buffer object. Then render the buffer object in a full screen quad using a blurring shader. If you need to blur only a part of the scene then you need to use another texture as mask.
