Bob Levy: The State of Confusion? A
Mulligan or Groundhog Day, Again?
Etymology: probably from the name Mulligan:
a free shot
sometimes given a golfer in informal play when the previous shot was poorly
Also used in real-life situations, such as one
with cold feet or loss of virtue, who desires a second opportunity, when
the first has been a complete disaster.
It looks like Bob Levy is trying for a Mulligan.
Better known as a free shot, when you mess the first one up so badly, that you
can't even play from where you've landed yourself in so much
So now, according to Bob Levy, it's time to
pretend that the year 2006, and the laundry list of Levy Scandals never
According to Bob Levy, it's time

Levy utilized the so-called State of the City Address today in order to
focus on "just the positive news of the previous year" and all of his plans for
No where in the State of the City Address did
Levy mention that he lied, and to this day, has never truly apologized for
claiming to be a real live Green Beret in the Vietnam War, in order to be
elected Mayor of Atlantic City.
No public official in the history of the United States
has ever survived as serious a military scandal. I submit that Bob Levy will not
survive his disqualifying scandals either.
For Bob Levy, however, he thinks all he needs to do is
call for another Mulligan, and all will be ok for him, as he has
grown accustomed to, in his Walter Mitty
No where in his address did Bob Levy apologize for
intentionally and racially dividing the city of Atlantic City, by lying and
claiming that he was "kicked out of Atlantic City High School for dating an
No where in his address did Levy apologize for
being the useful idiot of convicted felon Craig
Callaway. Levy continues, to this day, to keep Callaway's friends and
family members on the city payroll in the highest levels of government to
No where in this address did Bob Levy apologize for
vacating city hall and his position of Mayor for more than 2 weeks recently,
without notifying members of City Council and the public.
Levy was caught by my brother, Harry, and to this day,
Levy has not explained his Houdini-like disappearing act, which
occurred in between Levy's reported threats to murder my brother and
probably myself, too and Levy's sudden return to work.
No where in the State of the City Address did Bob Levy
apologize for falling asleep on national TV at the dais of the League
of Municipalities Convention, before he greeted in slurred speech,
a welcome to all elected leaders from around the state "to THE
No where today, did Bob Levy apologize for
"Big-Pimpin'" on MTV Music Television, where he created a national embarrassment
for Atlantic City, in a state of what many believe to be some sort of
intoxication. (Please refer to Bob Levy Big Pimpin' video, located on
HarryHurley.com to see for yourself).
No where did Bob Levy apologize for commenting to The
NY Times Newspaper, that "I aint' got nothin' to say about
nothin'" when they were merely calling Levy to receive a comment
on the murders of four young woman in or around Atlantic City, who may have lost
their lives at the hand of a serial killer.
It is believed by many that Levy felt the NY Times was
more interested with Levy's wearing of a Phony Green Beret, than in
the fatal crimes, which have now been sadly relegated to back pages of
local newspapers and also late mentions in local TV News Broadcasts,
(tonight for example on TV-40).
Bob Levy made it clear to the NY Times and everyone
else, "that his weekend off" was more important than something as mundane as the
loss of human life.
No where did Bob Levy apologize for settling his own
law suit against the city of Atlantic City for more than $200,000, because Levy
says he was not reappointed as Emergency Management Director by Mayor Langford,
as was Levy's birthright.
This is in spite of the fact that Bob Levy assisted
Craig Callaway in sticking Tom Foley with a one dollar per year salary for the
same job that Levy made in excess of $55,000 per year.
Levy also justified not reappointing Foley to his
position as Emergency Management Director, by Levy declaring: "I'm the
Mayor and I can do whatever I want"!
Yet, Levy sued the city and settled his own law suit
because he was not reappointed by Langford. Is the picture of Bob Levy becoming
Bob Levy delivered the State of the City Address today
before the gathering of a paying audience at the Metropolitan Business
and Civic Association in Atlantic City for a fee of $30.00 per
This is contrary to all prevailing practices
of previous Mayors of delivering this address to the citizens of
Atlantic City, for free, and in City Hall at the first meeting of City
Council of the new year.
Does anyone imagine that there is any other city,
state or group anywhere else in the country, that has delivered their similar
address on January 29, 2007, as Bob Levy did today?
The only thing that I contend that Bob Levy is
qualified to deliver a state of, would be the state of Bob Levy's many vacations
this year, as that is all that Levy was known for the entire
Levy was armed with 6 members of Atlantic City Council
in attendance, a speech written for him by someone else that he
couldn't even read, as well as a power point presentation that Levy,
himself, never looked at even once.
Bob Levy never apologized for not being able to pick
up the snow from the streets of Atlantic City during the recent minor snow
storm last week. Neither Levy nor Public Works Director, David Callaway,
could get the job done.
I'm left to wonder why David Callaway did not use the
same tactics he utilized to call city workers for overtime pay to
remove all of 3rd Ward City Council candidate, Warren Massey's, campaign signs
from private property?
Had Callaway utilized these effective tactics in the
interest of public safety, as he did for he and Levy's political interests, than
perhaps the snow could have been as easily removed as Massey's campaign
And, no where in Bob Levy's State of the City Address
did Levy apologize for presiding over the city that experienced more
violence and murder than at any time in the history of Atlantic
With all of the excitement in Atlantic City during the
year 2006, Bob Levy said he chose "to focus on the positive", such as
the saving of "Millions of dollars in legal expenses". I suppose this
is why Levy settled his own lawsuit, too...in order to save the citizens
more money that they would have to pay him.
These "Levy savings" of course do not factor
in the countless millions of dollars in law suits that the city is sure to
pay out, as result of Bob Levy and Craig Callaway's malicious conduct toward
employees and innocent citizens during the past several
It's interesting to note that Bob Levy barely got his
State of the City Address on the record before Groundhog Day, which is this
Friday by the way. It is widely believed that many of Levy's handlers were
worried about Levy seeing his own shadow on February 2nd, so it was
important to have this significant speech delivered on January
I suppose the really good news in Bob Levy's State of
the City Address today, is that Levy promised that 2007 "is going to be an even
better year than 2006"!
It should be truly known that the only real
positive news in 2006, was the citizens of Atlantic City announcing their
intentions to Recall Bob Levy as Mayor in 2007.
That's some real news worth
