    DETROIT (CNNMoney) -- General Motors is poised to once again be No. 1 in global auto sales, after three years out of the top spot.

    It's a comeback that will be official when final 2011 sales figures are reported in the coming weeks.

    Recapturing the top spot seemed unthinkable in 2008 when GM lost the title. At the time, the company was in a tailspin. Its very future was uncertain, and a bankruptcy filing and federal bailout loomed.

    GM back on top in global sales race - Jan. 10, 2012

    In the midst of an economic crisis, with 25 million people needing work, policies that strengthen the hand of labor unions at the expense of both businesses and workers are probably the last thing the country has needed. But President Obama, in political debt to labor leaders who have funneled union funds to the coffers of the Democratic Party and who are vital to his reelection bid, is willing and eager to press forward with Big Labor’s agenda.

    He pursued “Card Check” legislation that would have stripped workers of the right to vote by secret ballot on whether to unionize. He issued an order requiring workers on stimulus projects to become union members. He appointed Big Labor cronies to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) where they have wreaked havoc on the law. Perhaps the best known example is the agency’s decision to bring charges against Boeing—the nation’s largest exporter—for opening a billion-dollar manufacturing facility and hiring over 1,000 new workers in a Right-to-Work state.

    Far from contributing to economic recovery, the Obama administration’s highly politicized labor policies have instead dampened business investment and made the employment climate worse. Overall, it is a familiar story from the annals of American politics: favors were given and favors were repaid, and the American people lost out in the transaction.

    Are you claiming Obama caused the Japanese earthquake and tsunami in March? Should this thread be in conspiracy theories, because that is one wacky theory.

    Romney would have broken up GM and shipped their jobs overseas.

    Pure conjecture and you know it.

    If Obama had nothing to do with it and Republicans did, why are the job numbers better in 08 and 09?
