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.”
