    "There he goes again." & "Here he comes again."

    Somehow I feel that the sentence of "there he goes again" not like the literal meaning of "he goes to someplace again" but the meaning of "he does something (especially something stupit) again." and also I have seen the sentence of "here he comes again" them all mean the same thing?

    The example from the Internet as follows:

    Perhaps if Kerry doesn't have the cajones to tell voters "Bush is lying again about my record," he should do as Kaplan suggests and use the Reaganesque "There he goes again" every time Bush lies. That would be perfect payback.

    I wouldn't use 'here he comes again' with that sense.
