This thread is supposed to be about partisanship right? From my understanding, bipartisan politics are when both political parties work together to get things done. If partisan politics is the issue then, like basically everything else, it depends on the context, and what happens. For example, if something good (aid for 9/11 First responders) is blocked by partisanship, thats bad. If a move to take away the 2nd amendment (no, Obama isn't trying to do that) is blocked by partisan action, then its good.
