    I hope he doesn't join the faction the agreed with Brian Barnyard that the Highway Patrol MEMORIAL crosses are an establishment of religion. Which they are not.

    When he was the U. S. Attorney for Utah he garnered a reputation for taking too long to make decisions. Now, on the Circuit Court of Appeals, he won't be criticized for taking lots of time to make up his mind. Those judges always take time to make up their minds and no one criticizes them for it. So this is a good fit.

    Congratulations Judge Matheson! This is an excellent choice for the 10th Circuit bench. The Republicans should be ashamed of themselves for delaying confirmation so long, just so they could play political games.

    Congratulation Mr. Matheson.

    You are an excellent choice and it should not have taken this long.

    Utah and the 10th Court are gaining much in this confirmation.

    To JCS: You are joking, right? It has been Republicans, not left-wing extremists, who have been stalling judicial nominations.

    Obama has done just about everything right, which is why Gov. Huntsman wants to be a part of this administration-----Matheson as well.

    It is absolutely absurd that McConnell retired in August of 2009, and it took until December of 2010 to replace him. Unfortunately, this is another example of how left-wing extremists in government have brought the judicial system to a dead standstill.

    Why does the left feel that it is acceptable to endanger the public by leaving so many judicial vacancies open for so long? Apparently, the left feels that furthering its political agenda is more important than protecting the public.

    All members of the Senate who obstruct judicial nominations must be voted out immediately. Only then will the public be able to enjoy some measure of safety.

    Excellent choice! The only, and I mean only, thing Obama has done with which I can fully agree.
