I hear it from readers all the time: General Motors (NYSE: GM ) is still the automaker that lots of you love to hate.
I get it. The 2009 bailout-bankruptcy-overhaul orchestrated by the Obama administration left a lot of hard feelings in its wake. Bondholders who lost out and dealers who were forced to close felt burned, and to this day they, and plenty of other folks, hold it against GM.
I've been writing about GM for a long time. I know all the arguments, I've heard it over and over from all sides.
But here's the thing: This GM is a different company from the one that went down the tubes in 2008. It has a different CEO, different leaders in key positions, and a whole different strategy from the one that got Old GM in so much trouble before 2009.
