Pickens: There Are Jobs, but Some in US Don’t Want to Work

Off the Cuff

T. Boone Pickens, legendary Texas oilman, hedge fund chairman and self-styled “accidental environmentalist” talks to “Off the Cuff” about the economy, where the jobs are, gun control, and being “green” -- while making greenbacks.
Pickens has been a major donor to conservative causes. In 2004, he contributed $2 million to the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth campaign, which opposed John Kerry’s candidacy for the presidency, and supported George W. Bush. Then in 2010, Pickens and Kerry formed an unlikely alliance to champion an energy policy bill in the Senate. Now, Pickens weighs in on Kerry’s performance as Secretary of State – and sizes up President Bush’s amateur artworks.
