Former Republican U.S. Senate candidate Christine O'Donnell called President Obama "hypocritical" for points made in his State of the Union address Tuesday night. She said the president's call to freeze government spending echoed the concerns of the Tea Party, a movement which catapulted O'Donnell to the national stage during the 2010 midterm election. O'Donnell, who lost the Senate race to Delaware Democrat Chris Coons in November, said she disliked the fact that lawmakers crossed the aisle to sit with members of the other party during the speech. "I like when the Democrats sit on one side and the Republicans sit on another," O'Donnell told ABC's Good Morning American. "We're not all supposed to braid each other's hair and sing 'Kumbaya.' Not in Congress. Let's have healthy debate."
