END JUSTIFIES THE MEANS ?

About: special report w/ bret baier - foxnews.com

I watched the interview & Obama really didn't answer much besides the opportunity to bring out the tired, same old campaign speech talking points.  IMHO, he said in so many words that he really didn't care about the process much as long as "his" health care bill got passed. IOW, the ends justifies the means. Each of the following believed that his "right thing to do" justified the means: Stalin, Mao, Hitler, Lenin, Marx, Engels.... Ahmadinejad, Sadam Hussein, .... etc.

Indeed, Machiavellian!
OF MAINTAINING A PRINCEDOM - FROM THE PRINCE - MACHIAVELLI: ... Princes who set little store by their word but have known how to over-reach men by their cunning have accomplished great things, and in the end got the better of those who trusted to honest dealing. The prince must be a lion, but he must also know how to play the fox. He who wishes to deceive will never fail to find willing dupes. The prince, in short, ought not to quit good courses if he can help it, but should know how to follow evil courses if he must.
A PRINCE must avoid being despised as well as being hated; therefore courage, wisdom and strength must be apparent in all his actions. Against such a one conspiracy is difficult. That prince is wise who devolves on others those matters that entail responsibility, and may therefore make him odious either to the nobles or to the commons, but reserves to himself the matters that relate to grace and favour.

... the whole excerpt has many other things to quote that apply!

Lest anyone be confused about it, my stand is that both the ends & the means must be justified (true,beautiful & good).

Mark de LA says
Apparently Bill Clinton & others believe that the ends justifies the means. Here is Clinton in his eulogy for Robert Byrd. "He was just trying to get elected!" BTW, Byrd had more than just a fleeting attachment to the KKK - read this article in the Wikipedia.
