Camille Paglia is the well-known left-libertarian cultural observer. Best known for trashing political correctness, she was an Obama supporter who seems to be turning on him, at least on domestic policy. Here's part of her latest piece in Salon.com. Note in particular the last sentence:
An example of the provincial amateurism of current White House operations was the way the president's innocuous back-to-school pep talk got sandbagged by imbecilic support materials soliciting students to write fantasy letters to "help" the president (a coercive directive quickly withdrawn under pressure). Even worse, the entire project was stupidly scheduled to conflict with the busy opening days of class this week, when harried teachers already have their hands full. Comically, some major school districts, including New York City, were not even open yet. And this is the gang who wants to revamp national healthcare?
