In his November 29 Best of the Web column “Biden’s partisan pandemic history,” the Wall Street Journal’s James Freeman took up President Biden’s remarks the previous day on the Omicron variant (transcript here). Biden’s remarks implicitly trashed President Trump handling of the epidemic in a characteristically ungracious, ungrateful, and dishonest manner. I call it “The Biden variant.” Freeman writes in a more dispassionate spirit (links omitted):
At Monday’s [White House press] event the topic was Covid but unfortunately the Biden approach was the same [i.e., purveying “whoppers”]. “A year ago America was floundering against the first variant of Covid,” claimed Mr. Biden.
This new Biden claim is more a statement of opinion than an assertion of fact. But it still raises the question of how well the president has been keeping his aforementioned honesty pledge [“When I was elected I said I would always be honest with you”].
Moderna Inc. said it asked U.S. and European health regulators Monday to authorize use of its Covid-19 vaccine, after it was shown to be 94.1% effective in a full analysis of a pivotal study.
The timing keeps the vaccine on track to become possibly the second to go into use in the U.S. by year’s end—after one already under regulatory review from Pfizer Inc. and BioNTech SE —with inoculation available to the general public likely in spring or summer. Moderna said some doses also could become available in Europe in December… The progress is remarkably quick for vaccines, accomplishing in months what typically takes a decade.
