The public argument over the NAACPís condemnation of the Tea Party movement has the rhetoric flying fast and furious on both sides as each fight to establish that they hold the moral high ground.

The language of the resolution urging Tea Partyers to condemn the so-called racist elements within their ranks, which passed overwhelmingly at the NAACPís national meeting in Kansas City, Mo., will remain secret until it is approved by the organizationís national board later this year.

Nevertheless, the sentiment, which has been widely advertised and promoted by NAACP spokesmen, is being repudiated by leaders from across the Tea Party movement who are accusing the NAACP of ignoring racial issues within its own ranks.

Actually, both sides are missing the boat in what could otherwise be a teachable moment that, as former House Speaker Newt Gingrich says, could draw both organizations toward a focus on finding solutions to Americaís most pressing problems.
