CNN is also saying Boehner came to the decision yesterday evening following the Pope visit. These comments might be really juicy television.
And then came the bombshell: “I really think the Vatican ought to reconsider keeping Francis as the Pope in the future. I really don’t know how that whole papal thing works, but if they have the ability to fire him or something, they should put some serious though into that option. Otherwise, at the rate he’s going, he might even decide to run in the 2016 U.S. presidential election,” Cruz concluded.

The actual results of elections show otherwise. The state elections were dominated by Republicans. The congressional and senate races were won by Republicans AFTER they shut the government down the last time.
This is not good news for the Democrats as the GOP won't have leadership that is willing to bend. I am not voting for conservatives for them to compromise and make friends... I want them to stop the agenda. The problem is Boehner and McConnell are part of the agenda.
That's possible. Boehner appears to be very devout.

KJ mentioned his pope visit may have affected him to step down, and I thought it fitting that his fellow republican is calling for the popes sacking which may have rubbed him the wrong way and contributed to his decision to step down.
