Unpaid taxes, uncowed GOP: Obama searches for his style

Obama has moved with blazing speed to put his imprint on his young administration. He's filled out his staff and Cabinet faster than anyone in at least three decades, blasted out executive orders and pressed Congress to pass the most expensive stimulus in history. In his rush He's also bypassed his own orders against hiring lobbyists, named three senior appointees with tax problems, been forced to admit that he "screwed up" and shifted political strategy on the stimulus.
