Biden to Hurricane Victims: 'You've Got a Homeboy in the Deal Who Gets It'

Posted: Nov 19, 2012

 Vice President Joe Biden wants you to know that he's your homeboy and he won't let a hurricane stop him from holding you down to the fullest. The veep visited New Jersey on Sunday to view the damage from Hurricane Sandy and speak with victims of the disaster.

“So as the president said when he was up here with the governor, we’re not going anywhere. We’re not going anywhere. And you’ve got a homeboy in the deal who gets it,” Biden said in Seaside Heights, N.J., according to White House pool reports.

The former Delaware senator went on to explain the importance of the ocean to his East coast roots.

“If you’re not an Easterner it’s hard to understand that the ocean to us is the Grand Canyon, Yellowstone Park and everything else combined,” he said. “It is a gigantic part of not only our economy but who we are. It’s a gigantic part of the culture as well.”

President Obama had no comment on the vice president's remarks.
