What's Wrong With This Quote?

From a CNN story on Bush's visit to the Gulf Coast:

Bush got a warm reception in Mobile from Govs. Haley Barbour of Mississippi and Bob Riley of Alabama. Both praised the federal government's response. Still, Barbour said, "We've suffered a grievous blow that we won't recover from for a long while."

Standing with the governors in an airplane hangar, Bush said, "We have a responsibility to clean up this mess."

"What is not working right, we're going to make it right," Bush said. Referring to rampant looting and crime in New Orleans, Bush said, "We are going to restore order in the city of New Orleans."

Which do you think is the more severe and pressing problem: The looting or the dying/dead people in the streets? Personally, I think the property can be replaced and we should be rescuing people first and foremost. Of course, what do I know? I have a heart and a brain, two things the President is obviously sorely lacking.
