With BP’s big oil spill in the gulf, it might seem President Obama would focus more on natural gas — the cheaper, cleaner, abundant alternative that would create many high-paying jobs and allow us to stop subsidizing unfriendly foreign regimes.
"I think you’d be wrong. This President has pledged his allegiance to the fairytale solution of clean coal through carbon capture, and remember he didn’t crack down on the coal industry after the terrible tragedy that befell the coal miners in West Virginia, along with pie-in-the-sky solar, wind and biomass," Cramer said.
You can’t count on Presidential help for natural gas, he continued. If these stock’s are going to get any assistance, it’s coming from abroad — think about Reliance Industries' just closed $1.7 billion deal for 40 percent of new Cramer fave Atlas Energy’s core Marcellus Shale acreage position, or Mitsui’s joint venture with Anadarko , where it paid $1.4 billion for 32.5 percent of Anadarko’s Marcellus assets.
