A Little Deductive Reasoning

OK class, here's tonight's homework:  given that GOP Rep. Darrel Issa will do anything to attack President Obama and given the Rupert Murdoch will do anything to make GOP fringe stories into reality, what happens should the GOP get control of the House this fall?
Darrell Issa is out with a report this morning claiming that the Obama Administration has engaged in an unprecedented amount of illegal propaganda.

The charge is almost undoubtedly true: As the report drily catalogues, virtually every 20th Century administration, particularly in wartime, skirted the limits on propaganda. The first administration fully in the new media age produces a far, far larger volume of media than any of its predecessors, and Issa argues that some of it crosses the line.

One puzzling footnote: Issa's report includes the claim, floated on the right but never substantiated, that Justice Department blogger Tracy Russo posted anonymous comments to conservative blogs. If she did, that could qualify as propaganda. (Though perhaps its single least effectual form. Anonymous blog comments!)
If you said "a massive coordinated Village effort to get Obama to resign through trying to impeach him on everything in the last 19 months", then you'd be unfortunately correct.

If you think the GOP will pull a Pelosi and "take impeachment off the table" then I'm not sure what else I can say to convince you what's coming should the GOP predictions of taking the House come true.
