Bum's rush

Posted by Fred on January 04, 2005

P. Krugman uses this phrase as follows: 'The people who hustled American into a tax cut to eliminate an imaginary budget surplus and a war to eliminate imaginary weapons are now trying another bum's rush.' Though there are some comments about the phrase in the archives I don't find them very helpful. Thanks for any additional help.
