How does "going off" help?

I find it absurd that Spike Lee told Obama a href=”http://www.cnn.com/2010/POLITICS/06/02/obama.oil.spill.tone/index.html?hpt=T2″to “Go off” in response to the oil spill:/abr /br /blockquoteOne time, go off!” director Spike Lee urged on CNN’s “AC 360°.” “If there’s any one time to go off, this is it, because this is a disaster.”br /br /Lee’s sentiment echoes the frustration of people who want to see Obama get loud, take charge and inspire them like he did during his presidential run./blockquotebr /And pray tell, how will “going off” help? The oil spill is a problem that needs to be solved with a cool, level head, not screaming to “do something.” I guess some of those on the left don’t understand that just “feeling something” will not make it so. They are so used to screaming and demonizing people to get their way (because it works) that they think it will work in every situation. Unlike in the movies and Democratic politics where feelings dominate and span style=”font-style:italic;”seem/span to save the day, cool, rational thought is needed to deal with this particular crisis.
