HOW SHOULD WE RECEIVE THIS PHRASE, "IT IS WHAT IT IS"?

"IT IS WHAT IT IS"   (WHAT IS?)  HELP ME?
 
I often hear this phrase used in today's terminology.  I am seeking clarification, please?
 
1.  Am I suppose to walk away satisfied with this phrase to my question or comment?
 
2.  If this phrase is used, does that make things right if someone is wrong?
 
3.  Is this phrase simply a cop-out to an unanswered question?
 
4.  Or is it, that the person may have to much pride to admit they do not have an answer?
 
I appreciate your input...
 
Love you,
