On his radio show Monday, Rush Limbaugh went after Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels, by name, for his desire to declare a "truce" on social issues.

"You had a candidate promoted by the Republican establishment -- who didn't write off conservative voices -- but said, let's...we're going to move beyond that," said Limbaugh.

Limbaugh noted that it's fine to want to grow a movement, but added: "You don't diss the people who are already audiences of those shows...who won election for your party year after year after year after year. And all of this, of course, done to impress the mainstream media."

Limbaugh also had harsh words for the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) -- which took place in Washington, DC, last weekend: "Social conservatives were dissed again at CPAC," said Limbaugh. "I mean, Cheney got heckled, called a war criminal and a draft dodger at CPAC. I'm sorry, that's not the CPAC that I've always thought of or known."

Governor Daniels gave a high-profile dinner speech at CPAC this year. Two years ago, Limbaugh delivered the keynote address at the conference.

The problem with CPAC, said Limbaugh, is "the principles are now up for grabs."

Our New Approach to Comments

In an effort to encourage the same level of civil dialogue among Politics Daily’s readers that we expect of our writers – a “civilogue,” to use the term coined by PD’s Jeffrey Weiss – we are requiring commenters to use their AOL or AIM screen names to submit a comment, and we are reading all comments before publishing them. Personal attacks (on writers, other readers, Nancy Pelosi, George W. Bush, or anyone at all) and comments that are not productive additions to the conversation will not be published, period, to make room for a discussion among those with ideas to kick around. Please read our Help and Feedback section for more info.
