Republicans are getting “skunked” by Democrats, according to talk radio host Rush Limbaugh.

The conservative broadcaster joined ‘Fox and Friends,’ Tuesday morning over the phone, and criticized Republicans for failing to raise more awareness about the problems with Obamacare.

“I think it’s a golden opportunity for the Republicans to get back in people’s good graces and stand for something the American people actually stand for,” Limbaugh explained.

Part of the problem, Limbaugh said, was that Republicans were focusing on issues that would hurt them in elections – like immigration reform.

“Republicans are sitting around twiddling their thumbs, worried about immigration and whether the Hispanics like them or not, and being skunked on issue after issue after issue,” Limbaugh explained.

Limbaugh reminded the audience that the 2014 Congressional mid-term elections were critical to stopping Obama’s second term agenda – adding that it was a very real possibility that Democrats could take back the House.

“The 2014 mid-terms are really, really important,” he said. “Democrats win the House, then there is no such thing as a lame duck last two years for Obama. He’s going to have clear sailing.”
