GOP Rep. Michele Bachmann (Minn.) on Sunday blasted a Democratic strategist’s comments that Ann Romney had never “worked a day in her life.”

“I thought it was shocking and insulting,” Bachmann said Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

Democrats were thrown on the defensive last week after Republicans pounced on strategist Hilary Rosen’s remark, which they said diminished the role of stay-at-home mothers.

Rosen apologized for the comment, but the president, first lady and other top Democrats jumped in to denounce the remarks, as well. Rosen said she intended to criticize GOP front-runner Mitt Romney’s claim that his wife provided him with insight into the economic challenges faced by female voters.
