Presidential impropriety or just the impression of impropriety?

Democrat Congressman Jim Matheson of Utah voted "no" on the House health care bill in the Energy and Commerce Committee in July, and he voted "no" again when it came up for a vote before the full House in November.  Now, however, he's undecided.

Maybe President Obama can help him decide.  How could he do that?  Perhaps by nominating his brother to the federal bench.

Yesterday the President did just that by nominating Scott M. Matheson, Jr. to the United States Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit.  Of course, the White House press release announcing the nomination touted Matheson's credentials for the position. 

Perhaps Matheson is qualified.  Perhaps he is highly qualified.  Even so, the President should have at least delayed this nomination, if for no other reason than to avoid even the impression of any impropriety.

If this had been George W, every news cycle would be leading with the story and the Dems would have launched at least two investigations with televised hearings.

You're right. It's the same old double standard.
