Conservative radio host Stephen Baldwin offered President Obama some tough love at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington Thursday.
“I am not happy about the way things are,” Baldwin told ABC’s Jonathan Karl. “I pray for President Obama every single day. But tell you what. Homey made his bed, now he’s gotta lay in it.”
Karl wanted to make doubly certain who the term was meant for. “Homey being President Obama?” he asked, to which Baldwin responded, “That’s correct. That’s correct.”
The word “homey” is an alternation of the word “homeboy,” which is slang for a fellow gang member or a male from one’s neighborhood.
Baldwin, an outspoken Christian and conservative Republican, is the younger brother of progressive Hollywood superstar Alec Baldwin and acted in the popular 1995 film, The Usual Suspects.
This year Baldwin has a larger role at the conference, as he is co-hosting the Xtreme Politically Active Conservatives (XPAC) lounge, an entertainment zone “for the pop culture personalities, entertainment, music and laid back programming that brings a whole new experience to CPAC,” according to its Web site.
Conservatives at CPAC are honoring alleged Senate-office-phone-tamperer James O’Keefe — the so-called ‘ACORN pimp’ — and hyping his presence in their promotional videos. Fox News is covering the event.
