Referring to Obama’s statement on the quarantine issue, Christie alluded that he was tired of being lectured for taking action in his state.

“I don’t know when the White House is going to get around to admitting that and not giving us seven minute lectures from the South Lawn, and just get to work,” he said.

Christie argued that the American people were anxious to have their leaders set a defined policy.

“New Jersey is proud to lead on this, to lead in the area of common sense. That’s what we’re doing and we’re not changing,” he explained.
