House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., announced Thursday that she is stepping down from the Democratic leadership of Congress. Her decision not to seek re-election was greeted with glee by conservatives on Twitter.
“The Pelosi era is over. Tidy is neat!” Rep. Lauren Boebert, R-Colo., tweeted.
Mark Levin, conservative radio host and “Life, Liberty, and Levin” host on TBEN News, criticized the press and politicians for honoring Pelosi’s career through rose-colored glasses.
“Nancy Pelosi gets bipartisan respect and the media cringes despite her miserable rule of the House. She was no unifier. She never showed respect for our system. She always had a nasty remark. So the rewriting of her true legacy is already beginning. A sham” Levin tweeted.

J. Bradford Williams, a conservative commentator and founder of “thebradfordfile,” pointed out that Pelosi enriched herself during her time in the House of Representatives.

The Jan. 6 commission, set up under Pelosi’s leadership, has taken unprecedented steps to refer former Trump administration officials to the Justice Department after they rejected a subpoena to participate in the commission’s investigations.

“Nancy Pelosi no longer a speaker makes the 2022 election cycle a huge win for the Republicans,” Tim Young, a conservative author and comedian, wrote after Pelosi’s announcement.
During her tenure, Pelosi passed President Barack Obama’s Affordable Care Act, denied Congress funding to President Donald Trump’s border wall, presided over two impeachment proceedings against Trump that did not lead to his removal from office, and secured the approval of a major part of President Biden’s legislative agenda during the first half of his administration.
