Plus it seems the ultimate of hypocrisy to tell us that Obamacare is a bad law that must be destroyed, then to go like a pack of dogs after the person whom they see as not doing a good job implementing the law.

Doesn't anybody else see what's wrong with this picture?

I don't. One of the major elements of conservative objections to government having a large role in society is competence - the belief that government is not as institutionally capable of providing services as other actors. That's a major prong in why they believe that government should be limited. It's the "DMV" view of government - incessanty bureaucratic, unresponsive to the needs of customers, inefficient, and unable to perform its basic functions well.

So here, the government took on the role of acting as an insurance agent that will market and sell policies through an ecommerce site - and did it very, very badly. That's worthy of criticism, and it's entirely consistent with conservative critiques of government activity.
