Photo: Romney's laid-back Thanksgiving

(CNN) - Casting aside his typical campaign attire of suits or shirts with rolled up sleeves and well-coiffed hair, a photo appeared on Mitt Romney's Facebook Friday with the 2012 GOP nominee donning a t-shirt and hugging his wife, Ann, in the kitchen.

"Hope everyone had a great Thanskgiving! Much to be thankful for this year," the caption read. With the exception of a recent trip to Disneyland, Romney has largely stayed out of the public spotlight since losing the election earlier this month.

    Beautiful picture.

    But, does anyone out there actually believe that this photo was taken yesterday? Sorry, for being a cynic, but most everything that has come out of Mitt Romney's mouth for over the past year has been lie. My favorite Romney whopper is when he called Pres. Obama a "failure" and then denied it very next day.

    It still gives me the creeps to look at his smile, whether it's a smile from yesterday (hard to believe) or ten years ago.

    Go have a peaceful life. Mittens, please dont run anymore and please take your loss more gracefully that John McCain, who continue to embarrass himself.

    Do use all a favor Mitt....go spend your money and help build our economy. Invest in the America you believe in so much. Don't let a blind trust invest for you anymore. Buy American.

    why does Ronmey's appearance remind me a little of the Nick Nolte character in Down and Out in Beverly Hills.

    Looks like someone is having a breakdown. You can tell that after the campaign, he is looking at life differently. You can tell that his ego got shot down and he is changing. I hope he retires and enjoys life and becomes a more humble man. I wish him the best. This picture, even though he is hugging his wife and being nice, is not a picture you would see as a man running for president. It just does not look so presidential. He is definitely changing. Maybe for the better! Who knows. Good Luck Mitt Romney. Stay safe RETIRE PLEASE!, even though you have been unemployed for a few years, you are like 65, its a good time to just enjoy your quarter million dollars. See ya!

    Romney is trying so hard to look like a regular person, he is overdoing it.
