Sign the petition: Bring President Obama to Oso

We're going to the top - Ron and Don want you to sign a petition to get President Obama to visit Oso.

It reads:

"The people of Oso, Washington could use the comforter-in-chief that was there after Sandy Hook and in New Jersey after Hurricane Sandy. Take the time to fly out to Washington for something more than just campaign contributions please."

CLICK TO SIGN THE PETITION TO INVITE PRESIDENT OBAMA TO VISIT OSO... AND SHARE TO PASS IT ALONG:

We need 100,000 signatures before May 2.

Some are against a visit. Jeannette Hartman wrote "Not welcome" and Jeannie Owen Miller wrote "For petes sake! People of Oso... of Washington state are pretty strong without needing the spectacle of the pres showing up!" on Ron and Don's Facebook page.

But Ron counters with a suggestion that the added attention might prompt the big banks, like Bank of America, to forgive the mortgages of those victims whose homes are gone.

"When the president visits, the money flows," says Don.
