Morning Coffee With Molovinsky and Pawlowski

In my post yesterday, I showed this selfie with my early morning coffee. A reader noticed that I have lost weight; Thank you for that, but the picture is flattering. What really amazes me in the morning is Pawlowski's facebook posts. Here is a man who marches forward, despite those damn indictments. Talk about cherry picking, every piece of good news about Allentown is shared on his page,  even including pictures of actual  cherry blossoms.  Someone, from out of town, reading his feed would have no idea about the cloud hanging over him, and subsequently Allentown. Yesterday, he had about ten postings, including one by the Urban Land Institute, praising Allentown as a success for it's innovative private/public use of funds for development. Considering that over $70 million of state taxes went for that private/public debt service last year,  it's certainly a success for J.B. Reilly's portfolio.  Apparently, these urban planning bureaucrats, delusional as Pawlowski, don't know the difference between real development,  fairy dust and tax dollars.

This is the political playbook developed by the Clintons in the 1990, it worked for them then, the only difference is they then held the presidency of the United states, Pawlowski does not. Some people deny their problems till the very end, this seems to be the case.

You know the drill for politicians

Gray skies are gonna clear up,
Put on a happy face;
Brush off the clouds and cheer up,
Put on a happy face.....

"Try to indict me Ed" is no different.

Pawlowski reminds me of Rod Blagojevich (the 40th gov of Ill, and the 6th to go to jail).

They are both sociopaths, and will never give up that they are innocent.

Mr Molovinski

The Mayor is going to put a smiley face on everything. He's well aware of the FBI investigation and the indictments, resignations and convictions that have occurred. He's just trying to keep the "stiff upper lip" until the floor falls out from under him. Facebook is his world where he can tout the City (which is one of his duties), and also, I suppose, live in his fantasy world where all is well and calm.

Going into the office must not be the same now as it was before last summer, and it must be a very tense and unpleasant environment in City Hall; not knowing who will be next.

Thanks for providing the answer to the question; what exactly are the mayor's duties? Facebook posting appears to be the answer.
