    In an interview with ABC’s This Week, Vice President Joe Biden says neither he nor President Obama believes the Tea Party is a "racist organization," but he acknowledged some elements of the movement have "expressed racist views."

    "I wouldn’t characterize the Tea Party as racist," Biden said.

    "There individuals who are either members of or on the periphery of some of ... their protests that have expressed really unfortunate comments. (But) I don't believe, the president doesn't believe that the Tea Party is a racist organization."

    And yet, nobody has provided proof that any "elements" of the tea party have actually expressed racist views.
