New York, New Jersey Set Up Mandatory Quarantine Requirement Amid Ebola Threat
On Friday, a health care worker landed at Newark after treating Ebola patients in West Africa, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said at the news conference. A legal quarantine was issued for the woman, who was not a New Jersey resident and was set to go on to New York afterward.

“This woman, while her home residence is outside the area, said her next stop was going to be here in New York,” Christie said. “Governor Cuomo and I discussed it before we came out here, and a quarantine order will be issued.” The woman will be quarantined in either New York or New Jersey, Christie said.

Cuomo and Christie said it no longer matters if someone is showing symptoms or not...

In Lincoln, Christie stumps for Ricketts, catches NU-Rutgers
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie stopped by Lincoln on Saturday to take in some of the football game and to stump for fellow Republican Pete Ricketts.

“I’m here because I want people to focus on this race in these last 11 days,” before the election, he said. “I want the people of Nebraska to not take anything for granted and to know that their vote matters. We want Pete to have a big, comfortable victory on Nov. 4.”

Christie credited his confidence, in part, to advertisements the GOP governors group sponsored this fall in Nebraska...

While blistering Obama, Christie praises George W. Bush’s leadership
Governor Christie argued Saturday night that President Obama did a lousy job as a world leader. But Christie also made the case that Obama’s predecessor, George W. Bush, did a better job.

“When we have folks around the world who wonder any longer (sic) what’s it mean(s) to be a friend with the US, and what would the United States do in return for our friendship, that never, never had to be worried about in the past administration (sic). Everyone knew where George Bush stood and who he stood with,” Christie said during a fundraiser-birthday party for Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad in a Des Moines suburb.

...Bush...nominate(d) Christie for United States Attorney in 2001. It was the role that elevated Christie and positioned him for his 2009 campaign for governor, in which he soundly defeated then-Gov. Jon Corzine, a Democrat. Christie would not be standing on any stage in Iowa or the Jimmy Fallon Show, as a potential 2016 presidential candidate if not for George Bush.

That quickly turned into milligrams:

Christie defends Ebola quarantine announcement, saying he's trying to protect N.J. residents
The governor, speaking to reporters along the Republican Governor Association campaign trail in Iowa, stood by his Friday announcement with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo to quarantine some travelers reentering the country...

“My first and foremost obligation is to protect the public health and safety of the people of New Jersey,” Christie said. "And so I’m sorry if in any way she was inconvenienced, but the inconvenience that could occur from having folks who are symptomatic and ill out and amongst the public is a much, much greater concern of mine. This is a difficult situation to deal with and my heart goes out to her because she’s someone who’s been trying to help others...

Obama forces Chris Christie into embarrassing U-turn to allow Ebola nurse to leave New Jersey quarantine tent
Chris Christie was forced on Monday to allow a nurse being kept in a tent in a hospital parking lot to go home after intense White House pressure to relax a mandatory 21-day quarantine the New Jersey Governor had imposed at a state level.

The embarrassing turnaround came after Obama chaired a White House meeting on the rules and successfully lobbied Christie's New York counterpart, Gov. Andrew Cuomo, to relax their quarantine rules – even as Americans grow more concerned about the possibility of a pandemic emergency.

Cuomo gave in on behalf of New Yorkers. But as of Sunday Christie was still pushing for more aggressive measures to protect New Jerseyans, saying he had 'no second thoughts' about the policy.

Unapologetic, Christie Frees Nurse From Ebola Quarantine
“I didn’t reverse my decision,” Mr. Christie said from the Brevard Zoo in Melbourne, Fla., where he was campaigning for that state’s governor, Rick Scott, a fellow Republican. “She hadn’t had any symptoms for 24 hours. And she tested negative for Ebola. So there was no reason to keep her. The reason she was put into the hospital in the first place was because she was running a high fever and was symptomatic.”

“If people are symptomatic they go into the hospital,” Mr. Christie said. “If they live in New Jersey, they can quarantine at home. If they don’t, and they’re not symptomatic, then we set up quarantine for them out of state. But if they are symptomatic, they’re going to the hospital.”

And he wants to be seen as a Bush II-like leader? Proceed, governor!
