#Plumbers: Hume hashtag-zings; Watergate grew out of leak investigation

Hashtag zing!

Fox News’ Brit Hume sure makes the best of his Twitter feed. His tweets always pack a punch.

This time, he notes that Watergate grew out of a leak investigation. The scandals in the Obama administration keep coming: IRS targeting conservatives, the investigation into Benghazi and the AP phone records scandal. They all continue to grow as further information is exposed.

Hume isn’t alone in noting a comparison. As Twitchy reported, a photo showing Hillary Clinton then (during Watergate) and now (Benghazi) recently made the rounds.

The Nation’s Greg Mitchell sneered at such comparisons.

There may be something “Nixonian” about IRS and DOJ probes but most people tossing that reference around wildly have little Nixon knowledge.

But, Twitter users think Mr. Hume is making a valid point.

Maybe, but @brithume –no stranger to Watergate–makes a great point here: ow.ly/l1O2c @gregmitch cc: @chucktodd

[email protected]brithume Coverups of coverups. And now a third round — the press covering up. But correct, it’s no Watergate yet.

There is a difference, though.

@brithume nobody died in watergate as you know. why did this admin fail in protecting them!

According to Obama, and parroted by Jay Carney today, Benghazi is just a “political circus.” Shameful.

And what about the media?

@brithume The difference is Watergate was relentlessly pursued by media.

@brithume The difference is the Watergate media wasn’t investigating its hero.

Heh. But now that one of the scandals involves AP phone records, will the media finally stop worshipping at the altar of Obama?

@brithume Far from premature.#irs and #benghazi will far surpass Watergate as the most egregious abuses of executive power.MSM targeted.

Unrequited love does hurt, but we won’t hold our breath.

In the meantime, keep tweeting Mr. Hume!
