"we are hopeful that he will restore the constitution and get the country back to that path to democracy"

This WaPo article (h/t: ThinkProgress) discusses Bush's assertions that Pakistan's dictator Pervez Musharraf has "advanced democracy in Pakistan" and "hasn't crossed the line." It also contains two Quotes of the Day. The first is from Senator Joe Biden (D-DE):

"What exactly would it take for the president to conclude Musharraf has crossed the line? Suspend the constitution? Impose emergency law? Beat and jail his political opponents and human rights activists? He's already done all that. If the president sees Musharraf as a democrat, he must be wearing the same glasses he had on when he looked in Vladimir Putin's soul."

The second is from White House Press Secretary Dana Perino:

"[He] has made a mistake and took a detour -- we are hopeful that he will restore the constitution and get the country back to that path to democracy."

We're hopeful, too, but you really shouldn't talk about your boss like that; his administration isn't particularly fond of honesty and doesn't tolerate dissent.
