Cramer blames Carter’s cardigan for US energy problems
MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough, Mika Brzezinski and Willie Geist talked with CNBC’s Jim Cramer about U.S. independence from foreign oil.
Cramer said, “there’s no political will — if Jimmy Carter had never been president, may he rest in peace — people make errors all the time on TV. He created a legacy. The legacy was if we conserve we’re wimps, if we’re wimps we can’t get elected. The darn cardigan sweater has cost us more energy independence. There’s a legacy in this country we should burn fuel.”
