Joe Biden tells Sandy victims ”you’ve got a homeboy who gets it”…who is the homeboy?

In an effort to comfort the Sandy victims did Vice president Joe Biden jump the shark? He told the victims that they’ve got a “homeboy” who gets it.” Who is the homeboy and why is he using this slang terminology? Will he face any blackklash for this characterization? What if Mitch McConnell called the president homeboy? Would we simply write it off as that’s just Mitch? No we wouldn’t and somebody needs to tell Biden to curb his enthusiasm and learn to call the President–President because no matter how good natured he meant the term to be the president is nobody’s “homeboy.”
