Here’s your daily recap of the best feedback we got from YOU today. Continue the conversation below. And remember, keep it brief, and keep it clean. Thanks!

American Morning viewers emailed numerous questions about Swine Flu. With news of the EU suggesting limited travel to the U.S. and Mexico, some viewers encouraged the U.S. government to close the border with Mexico.

  • Eileen: With the swine flu coming from Mexico, do you think the US gov. can finally close the border?

With a potential worldwide pandemic, should the United States take the drastic measure of closing our borders with Mexico? Do you believe this would be the most effective way to stem the rise in Swine Flu cases in the U.S.? The U.S. has already seen a number of reported cases of Swine Flu, so what do you believe should be the next important action for the new Obama Administration regarding this outbreak? Let us know your thoughts.

Regarding the Obama Administration’s First 100 Days, President Obama’s time in office was given an A+ by viewers, who were concerned that CNN would “nitpick everything he has done or tried to do.”

  • Sandra: I see that you are gearing up to do your check list on President Obama's first 100 days and are probably going to nit pick everything he has done or tried to do in the short time he's been in office. Well in my opinion he's been more active and accessible in 3 months than Bush was in 8 years. I think it would be in the best interest of the country for you reporters to ask yourselves "What have I done in the last 100 days to help my country and fellow man?" rather than look for every small opportunity to make the President look bad just for ratings and your own personal agenda. We finally have an actual "HUMAN BEING" in the White House who is working for the average citizen and I for one grade him an A+ and wish him and his family all the best and much success in the future. Sandy

Tell us how you would grade the President and his administration on their first 100 days in office. Is President Obama living up to your expectations or are you disappointed in his performance so far? Share your opinions with us.

    I think that the negative comments of President Obamas' approach, to clean up a more the eight year catastrophe, is totally unrealistic! To my recollection, the first year, of Bush in office, was a permeate vacation!! I don't recall Bush doing ANYTHING, except for appeasing, the agenda's of the lobbyist, who put him in office. In doing so, the GOP,never criticized any of his actions. In fact they gave him "carte blanc" to run the state of our economy, to the brink of destruction!! Doesn't anyone remember, seeing the (so called) leader of the (once) greatest nation of the free world, freeze when he was advised, that our country was under attack on 911. America "WAKE UP". No matter who was voted into office, would face a hugh task to clean up this mess! GOP, please stop the nonsense! You were party to the problem. Now redeem yourselves and be party to a resolution!!!!

    I do not think closing the border is a good idea or even going to help, the virus is allready in the US and you have to keep in mind that there are families that have relatives in mexico and if they feel trap, a panic may happend, that is the last thing we need. we need to take precautions like the face mask perhaps that would be a great idea and not going outside unless really necessary.... that is just my opinion, and this is what I am doing, I will be sending my children with facemask to school I and washing my dishes and sanitizing all my house with a little of chlorox.
