Tea Partiers Cheer Birther Talk

Fox News: Tea Partiers Urge Unity as Rifts Show
National Tea Party Convention organizers and many participants have emphasized fiscal responsibility, but others are pulling the movement in a direction that might not be so politically profitable.

Convention organizers and many participants have tried to zero in on fiscal responsibility as their hallmark issue, one they hope has the power to win elections in November. But others -- including theorists who charge that President Obama is not a natural-born U.S. citizen -- are pulling the grassroots phenomenon in a direction that might not be so politically profitable.

Joseph Farah, founder of WorldNetDaily.com, made questions over Obama's citizenship a centerpiece of his Friday night speech in Nashville and got a standing ovation from the crowd for broaching the controversial topic.

The tea-partying phenomenon was founded on the basis of one single cause: fiscal restraint. It's good for them to expand their platform if they wish to be taken seriously as an emerging source for candidates, but they should know not to expand into scandal politics. This would damage their credibility even further in the eyes of the Washington establishment.
