Its funny that the right wing hackosphere is insisting on calling these "Presidential Alerts".
"ObamAlerts" would have been better. Or even "BarryLerts".
I kid of course. Nothing is beyond partisan hackery for these guys.
50 bucks says this will parlay into phones being built-in with Twitter and an inability to not read Obama's tweets.
Probably also sends you an alert with his Super Bowl pick and Bracketology.
