Obama and Immigration Reform.

From a Washington Post article, I've learned that the Obama campaign has purchased, among other Google keywords, "immigration reform". Type that particular keyword and Obama's ad appears at the top of your search results.

The ad reads, "Romney's Extreme Views" and "He'd separate immigrants from their families. Join us and fight back."

Click on the ad and you won't get any information on Romney's ideas on immigration reform, nor on Obama's ideas either, for that matter. What you will get is a plea from the Obama campaign for your email address. Of course, giving them your email address will only result in you receiving requests for money.

Clicking on the ad will, of course cost the Obama campaign money. How much? Who knows what they've paid Google for the privilege? Anyone clicking on the ad and not giving the campaign information or money will result in a loss for the campaign, however small that loss might be.

I suppose all's fair in love, war and politics, but I'd much rather receive authentic information about Romney's and Obama's plans on fixing the immigration debacle and not some cheap trick to get campaign funds.
