there you go
A phrase with multiple meanings: you’re right, you’ve done well, here is what you ordered or asked for, here is your answer, and the like. This meaningless (or multiple-meaning) locution dates from the first half of the 1800s. It acquired yet another meaning when Ronald Reagan said, “There you go again” in a debate with Jimmy Carter during the 1980 presidential campaign. Reagan here meant, “You’re wrong again,” denying Carter’s repeated charge that Reagan was a warmonger. This usage, as a dismissal suggesting someone repeatedly says something wrong or misleading, has remained current.
