Actually, we can cure colds. But they mutate too fast to get a viable vaccine.
Flu mutates too, but there are fewer strains so we can go after them more effectively.

We'll never cure anything. No profit in it. The money is in treatment.
The problem with developing a vaccine against cold viruses isn't so much that they mutate, but that there are so many of them: more than 200 have been identified, belonging to 5 different classes of viruses.
While they undoubtedly do mutate, the sheer number of viruses, some of which are extremely difficult to grown in the laboratory, make it virtually impossible to make any sort of vaccine against all the various viruses that cause the 'common cold'.
