In this funny, fast-paced, razor-sharp, well-reasoned, and supremely savvy critique of the state of our union under the disastrous reign of Barack Obama, bestselling author, Fox News contributor, syndicated columnist, and popular radio host Monica Crowley asks (and answers) the pressing question: What the @$%& has happened to America? “The Happy Warrior’s Guide to the Great American Comeback,” What the (Bleep) Just Happened? doesn’t simply bemoan the trashing of the American economy and the intentional firebombing of America’s international prestige, it offers inspiration and a positive message to conservatives and concerned Americans everywhere that the way to fight back and win is with principle, conviction…and a wicked sense of humor.

Monica Crowley was a 21-year-old graduate student when, having answered an advertisement, she became Richard Nixon's research assistant in 1990. Gradually she evolved into a confidante who remained with him until his death four years later. In this book she records Nixon's assessments of world events and world leaders, both as he sat brooding over his papers and draft memoirs, and during his almost manic peregrinations around the world. Ultimately the shadow of Watergate hung over his every moment, leading to revelations which startled the young Crowley.
