RFA's Executive Director Jim Donofrio interview by Trade Only Today, the Marine Industry magazine

Quote:
Q: In looking at the last few presidential administrations and their work in this area, how would you grade the Obama administration in comparison?

A: The Obama administration is the worst ever. There?s never been anyone worse than Obama?s administration because he?s hired all the leadership from [the] Environmental Defense [Fund] to work in NOAA. The head of NOAA Fisheries, Jane Lubchenco, is EDF. His new secretary of commerce is EDF. It?s ridiculous. This president ? he?s not my president. ? He?s detrimental to the health of this nation. His fisheries policies are horrible.

I think Donofrio speaks for a lot of sportsmen and women. Right now the RFA is the only organization speaking out for fishermen, many of the rest, including the tackle industry have been either "faked out" or co-opted by the environmental groups who are firmly in control of federal policy.

What is truly unbelievable is the thread in this forum: "Pew Environment Group Running Bait & Switch on Public"
