Support for Rick Perry and John Cornyn

It is interesting to note that many in El Paso are angry with Rick Perry and Cornyn for shutting down the Tiguas. I certainly am not happy about the closure of the casino. However, I do believe that the anger is misplaced. When the courts shut down the casino, Mayor Ray Caballero and Senator Eliot Shapleigh said not ONE word in defense of the casino.

Why did Shapleigh and Caballero, our local representatives, not stand up for their own community? Why do people not ask where Caballero and Shapleigh have been during this ordeal? Shapleigh and Caballero should have been screaming at the top of their lungs and yet they were the most silent.
