    I don't believe in coincidences of this magnitude in politics.

    If we tried to bribe a public official, we would be thrown in jail for 20 years. Why do Senators, Congressmen and Marxist Presidents have immunity?

    The Judge to be's brother has to vote "no" on the health care bill or be branded as a political whore and rightly so.

    You folks are gullible and naive as hell.
    Orin Hatch, a Republican, has endorsed Mattheson has extremely qualified.
    The kicker is if his brother would have voted FOR the health care bill all of you would have claimed Obama nominated his brother for that reason alone.
    Real easy to play both sides of the fence.
    Mattheson is well qualified, was US Attorney for the ENTIRE state of Utah, a law school dean and a nationally acclaimed constitutional scholar amongst all political parties.
    The kicker is the job of Judge pays about one fourth what he makes now.
    And you claim the Judgeship was up for sale? LOL. the nominee makes 4 times now what that job pays.
    Chuckle, how ridiculous.
    Laughable. Pure folly, fiction and nonsense of the highest order.

    I bet Owe Bama's kissing so much ass at the White House tonight that tomorrow he will have chapped lips, no money in the Treasury, Nancy Pelosi's ass will be sore, and they will have 7 more House votes.

    BS.

    The same day that the President is going to host Rep. Matheson at the White House to try and persuade him to change his vote, the President nominates his brother.

    THATS the coincidence. Not that his brother is being nominated. It's the timing, and the timing reeks of vote buying.

    Wow! This is magic. It is a sop to the LDS church, for which Scott is a homer on the court; a sop to Jim, for the vote; and a smack at the very conservative GOP base in Utah. That is touching the bases! Jim can vote for the bill because he is pretty safe in the most liberal of Utah's districts; much of his party of Salt Lake has always been liberal.

    Doesn't matter if its true or not, the fact that it gives THE APPEARANCE of wrong doing should have made it not happen.

    It again shows Barry's lack of judgement and good sense, even if it was coincedence he should have thought about the possible consequences.

    But that is Barry, he NEVER thinks that far ahead.
