Beat GM at it's own game? Can you tell me, than, why GM still sells the most? You can't beat #1. If Japanese cars really did beat them, shouldn't they be #1?
Grasping at straws now, eh? Who filed for bankruptcy, screwed their creditors and employees and now eats at the public trough? Toyota?

Go fish.

Yes, but who is still a US company, giving US jobs, quality US cars, and using US ingenuity? Toyota? I don't think so

Has anyone ever considered that GMs 1.4 Turbo in the Cruze is like an EcoBoost. Chevy recently added Direct Injection, on top if DOHC and a turbo....the formula for an EcoBoost.

One thing you're forgetting. GM is making a profit under this Administration, and were bankrupted under the Bush Administration.
As a matter of fact the nation was bankrupted under the Bush Administration and it's not until the last year in 10 years there's been any positive job growth.
Case being the loss of Millions of Manufacturing Jobs in America during the Bush Presidency that have no relations to the Automobile industry.
The Bush leadership with a Republican congress lead American into this pit fire of hell and a strangling by debt of more than $6.6 Trillion in additional debt.
When you consider that from George Washington to George Bush the National Debt was all of $5.8 Trillion and Bush racked up an additional $6.6 Trillion suggest that the Bush Leadership was a complete failure for America but a winfall for China and Saudi Arabia.

Attention devin dumbass you deranged shovel-ready democRat!!!
GM went bankrupt on obama's watch and by his decisions. Furthermore, when democRats took control of congress in 2006 that's when the trouble mushroomed. And, it won't end until the destructive stench of anti-Americanism and demented pro-Euro socialism/communism is gone from America.
You can point fingers and toss numbers until the cows come home but the number one fact remains, it's all an obamanation and certainly after all this time and money wasted it's you and your ilk's fault. Yes It Is.

If the little 4 would focus on building quality and NOT adding gimmicks like On-Star(that's why people have cell phones), park assist( parallel parked once in drivers training), Phone that goes thru the car speakers(irritating as hell for passengers that have to listen to the drivers pitiful life stories), Ecoboost(claims they cant back up) and a v6 that tows like a V8..........right..........the little 4s best quality is exaggerating!!!!!!!!!!RIP DEROT!!!!!!!!!!

But isn't it the democrats who primarily support the unions and the ever more stringent environmental regulations which have cost companies like GM billions and billions over the decades? Billions that could have been invested back in the company as many foregn automakers are able to do.

And I get the sense that liberals in general are more likely to buy and promote foreign vehicles as they feel such vehicles are more trendy and or environmentally friendly and so fourth.

As for GM possibly being number 1 again I'm happy and I hope it last but the accomplishment is tainted due to the fact that it comes largely from stubles at Toyota.
