Vice President Joe Biden says the tea party movement is conservative and has very different ideas about government, but it's not a racist organization.
Biden tells ABC's "This Week" that some people who've participated in tea party events or who've been on the periphery of these events have made "really unfortunate comments."
But he says that he and President Barack Obama don't think the tea party is racist.
