Mitch wants to switch the debate from Social issues to Fiscal Issues. A truce is not the same thing as a surrender, at least not in this case. One only needs to read his OpEd pieces in national magazines to understand that Mitch has not nor will not surrender on Social issues.

Mitch has already announced surrender and called for all conservatives to surrender, what he is really announcing is that he is against social conservatism and that his Presidency would reflect that political hostility to social conservatism.

From the Weekly Standard:

Mitch Daniels Doubles Down on “Truce”
Mark Hemingway writes:

I got a call this morning from Indiana Governor and rumored presidential candidate Mitch Daniels. In my column yesterday on his remarks about a “truce” on social issues, I left the door open to the possibility that the Governor’s remarks may not have been a “rhetorical misstep.”

Of course, if you know anything about Mitch Daniels in this respect he’s the anti-Obama. He’s far more concerned about communication than rhetoric, he’s thoughtful and rarely speaks without consideration. Rhetorical missteps are exceedingly rare.

And indeed, Daniels called me to say that he’s dead serious about the need for the next president to declare a truce. “It wasn’t something I just blurted out,” he told me. “It’s something I’ve been thinking about for a while.”
