Cafferty on the “Menu”: “The American Public is an Impatient Group”

cafferty_3-26.jpgToday on the mediabistro.com Morning Media Menu we were joined by CNN’s Jack Cafferty, author of the new book, “Now or Never: Getting Down to the Business of Saving Our American Dream.”

He says he decided to write the book as a response to the Bush administration. “I just felt like the country was badly damaged following the eight years of George W. Bush and that collection of morons that he had around him running this country into a ditch, so without the recession we were in enough trouble,” he says.

Cafferty thinks those who are already criticizing President Barack Obama are jumping the gun. “That’s convenient for everybody to say, ‘Oh it’s the media,’” he says. “But the fact of the matter is the American public is an impatient group of people and always has been.”

As for the Cafferty Files, he says the viewer interaction is good. “I hear from thousands of people every day, so I’ve got a pretty good ongoing sense of the mood of people. So that’s helpful,” he says.

Also discussed: how Obama did in Tuesday’s news conference, what it means for the President to appear at the Univision awards tonight and NCAA brackets.
