New video assails Welch
By the way, I now do know who produced this and a previous video. I'll have that information on here soon.
Here is the note, in its entirety, that I got from the person who created this and a previous video about Welch: Good morning. I wanted to write you a quick note of thanks for posting my video, "The Real Jason Welch, Don't Get Fooled".
At the time, I was upset that Mr. Welch was playing the "victim" card, whining about mudslinging, when at that time, none existed. A quick tour around the internet and 10 minutes later, "Don't Get Fooled Again" was born.
I have no ties to either campaign, and am flattered the video received a wider viewing audience thanks to your website. I am a newcomer to the area, an independent voter who normally votes Republican. I can simply no longer abide with Tea Party backed candidates such as Mr. Welch, pandering to a crowd of people who scream how they "Love America" but appear to hate Americans. The Republican Party has been hijacked by "Cafeteria Constitutionalists" who want to pick and choose what they deem worthy from our Founding Fathers and the Constitution.
Mr. Welch is nothing more than an effete political opportunist who fails to confront the basest elements of his party. If he did, I would support him.
A quick look at BristolToday this morning has me thinking...
If pandering wasn't bad enough, Mr. Welch (or his rabid attack dogs) now resort to rumor mongering, scurrilously promoting an absurd, slanderous lie that "Union Thugs" will descend upon Bristol Election Day. This is exactly what Welch did back in September, throwing out a baseless attack: "Colapietro is Mudslinging" (he wasn't) forcing Colapietro respond. What is next from the Welch Campaign? Will Mr. Colapietro be forced to deny he is a witch?
I would encourage you to ask Mr. Welch how his gutter political tactics create a single job for anyone here? Further, are these the sorts of useless political stunts we can expect from Mr. Welch should he be elected?
Since I will be voting for Colapietro for the first time, I think you know my answers, but Welch should be held accountable to his tasteless, baseless campaign. Until those questions are answered, and in the spirit of Mr. Welch (and his James Carville like tactics), I present to you: "Jason Welch: Just Like Us?".
I hope you find it worthy of posting on your site, as I certainly enjoy reading BristolToday.com. I don't want to be the focus of this campaign, as I am not running for public office, but I thought I owed you an explanation.
Thanks again for posting my previous video, and in advance for your consideration.
