Fox studios in New York City you know every week we hear the latest jobs numbers and they aren't good.
In fact they're dismal an estimated 23 million Americans don't have jobs but beyond those numbers there are real people.
And some of -- -- in a world of hurt.
I've got a special friend who lives in -- Tom won Iowa I got to know her and her family during the presidential campaign of 2008.
Her name is Wendy she's a beautiful young lady -- some would say she's a special needs child but I'd prefer to say she's just truly special.
Well yesterday when he went to work just like she has for the past eleven years at the local Wendy's restaurant in it somewhat.
But it was locked up.
-- sign on the front said it was closed.
The manager explained it.
In another storm is doing fairly well the company had abruptly closed it because.
It either needed renovations.
Are rebuilding and in this economy there just wasn't enough money to justify the cost.
Of building our renovating.
Her dad took her back home and for awhile she just set -- room for a long time still wearing her uniform.
Then she said.
I think god is telling me right now that I'm not feeling too good because now I've got this frosty key chain and I can't use it.
You see she can always get a free.
At the end of -- shift with her teaching.
Whenever I've been in Iowa her parents try to bring -- do you see me.
And when I was there just last month she came -- gave me a big hug.
And I sure wish I could give her one right now.
More than that I wish I could get -- her job back there and had someone.
Barack Obama and Mitt Romney gonna be slugging it out over the next six weeks they're gonna talk a lot about the economy and jobs and what they're gonna do to make things better.
I truly believe President Obama wishes things were better.
But after watching his plans fail for four years I doubt he's going to be able to make them better.
I didn't think Mitt Romney understands that if people don't have a job they can even buy a -- -- at Wendy's.
And if Wendy's isn't selling -- hamburgers to pay for their building and utilities and insurance employees pay him for the ever rising food prices then they will close.
And people like my special friend Wendy won't have a job.
I don't expect either Barack Obama or Mitt Romney to fix everything all by themselves.
And I know.
They can't personally keep every Wendy's open.
Just -- my little friend Wendy we'll have a job.
But I really would like for both Barack Obama and Mitt Romney.
To be able look windy in the eyes and convince her and me.
That they really understand who she is and that she matters as much as any banker or broker on Wall Street that got bail out of their trouble.
Could you see it's not just about jobs it's about people.
And a lot of them don't care about the politics.
They just want to feel good.
