The First 97 days

Analysis of Barack Obama's first three months is in full flower, with polls showing the public far more patient than the punditocracy in expecting results after eight years of screw-ups.

But in keeping with the fevered brows appearing both in mainstream outlets and in the blogosphere, allow me to introduce a new angle into the analysis: why has Barack Obama failed to cure swine flu?

For those with short memories (or those who weren't even born then) let's recall the issue became a problem for Gerald Ford in 1976.

Here we are three decades later and still no solution. What's up with that Barack?
