Sometimes the hero stands up and takes a bullet for the better of the Nation.

As Washington decrees the Tea Party-backed refusal to fund the government a failure, it seems at least possible that the strategy may have inadvertently achieved its goal of doing damage to Obamacare by forcing President Obama to roll out the Healthcare.gov website prematurely.

There now is little question that the Obamacare website – which allows people to sign up for insurance through the health care exchanges – is not only an abject failure. It’s also clear that the administration was well aware it was going to fail – whatever the traffic levels.

The White House believed Republicans held a losing hand and would suffer politically for their stance. But delaying Obamacare would have amounted to a stunning reversal in the shutdown battle, giving sudden credence to the the conservatives’ argument that Obamacare must be pushed back.

And so the White House went ahead and let the website go live. It’s failure could cause the destruction of Obamacare itself. And conservatives, by sticking to their guns long enough, may have ruined Obamacare in a manner they never anticipated.

It’s a theory, true. But it helps make perfect sense out of what is an otherwise incomprehensible decision to unveil the lynchpin of Obamacare, even though it was bound to fail.

The bullet hurts, but it's for the betterment of everybody.
