Behind the Scenes: Speech Prep

Governor O’Malley is hard at work putting the finishing touches on this State of the State.

By Steve Rabin, Chief Speechwriter

What a great speech prep session we just finished! Governor O’Malley is hard at work putting the finishing touches on this State of the State.  It’s gonna to be great. I thought I’d share with you a sneak preview…

The Governor plans to tell the story of how we came together over these past few difficult years. Marylanders are doing some really fantastic things, and the Governor will share a few of their stories. He will also tell our shared story. It’s a story about a people who didn’t just throw their hands up in the air when times got tough. Instead we came together and made tough choices so that we’d come out of this recession stronger – choices we made both around our own kitchen tables and through the common platform of our government.

Did these choices work? Spoiler alert: We’re #1 in education, #1 in innovation and #1 in regional jobs recovery. Tune in Wednesday to hear the Governor’s take on what choices we can make together to keep creating jobs, expanding opportunity, and strengthening Maryland’s middle class. Wednesday. Noon. Hope you’ll tune in! And follow along on Twitter with the hashtag #MDSOTS

I bet the speech includes the flat out lie that the boy gov cut spending even though this years budget is more than last years and that was more than the year before ad infinitum. Who beLIEves that lie which is repeated over and over?
