Yesterday, Governor O'Malley delivered his eighth - and thankfully - final state of the state address of his administration.   And, as usual, his speech was filled with so much that isn't so.  Now, I've done a few O'Malley fact checks over the years, including his recent tussle with Gov.

Gov. Martin O'Malley used his first State of the State address to strike a cooperative tone with Maryland lawmakers, calling for more corrections officers for a beleaguered prison system and for a program to help small businesses find more affordable health coverage, while reiterating his pledge to push for $400 million in school construction funds. The former Baltimore mayor also used sharp language to call for "an end to the cruel and antiquated practice of using ground rents to evict families from their homes."

Gov. Martin O'Malley's first State of the State address, delivered seven years ago, gave little hint of the sweeping changes that would take place in Maryland by the time he returned to the House of Delegates' rostrum today for his final such speech. The main take-away of that speech in 2007 was the new governor's promise to restore cooperation and civility in a state capital that had seen notable deficits of both during the period of divided government ushered in by his predecessor, Republican Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. After watching the legislature give Mr. O'Malley everything he wanted for seven years, and vice versa, that concern seems quaint.

It's said in politics that timing is everything, that success depends on picking the right time to make one's move. When Barack Obama decided in early 2007 to launch a presidential bid as a freshman U.S. senator at age 45, the naysayers wondered why he was in such a hurry. He proved them wrong. Three decades earlier, another young political comet named Jerry Brown, freshman governor of California at age 38, similarly had reached for the presidency in 1976. However, despite a late-surging campaign, he lost.

As Muhammad Ali once observed, "It's not bragging if you can back it up. " Thus, even his most caustic critics will have to concede that Gov.

Here's the CliffsNotes version of what Governor O'Malley had to say this afternoon: In the economic downturn, Maryland had to make tough choices, but they were good decisions - better than made elsewhere - and now things are looking pretty good.

Glendening began his second term yesterday with a declaration that "we have only just begun" to address the challenges of education, the environment and civil rights.Buoyed by his strong electoral showing in November -- a striking contrast to the slim margin by which he won his first term in 1994 -- Glendening delivered an inaugural address that was uncompromising in its liberalism."In the next four years, we will build more, invest more, do more to raise standards, expect more in our classrooms, and make teaching a more rewarding and more honored profession," the governor said.
