No, you're getting it confused; the 80s were the Golden Age of American action movies, ergo the golden age of one-liners. It didn't have much to do with Reagan directly, although the guy was a fan of the Rambo films. :)

"I eat Green Berets for breakfast." - Commando
"Don't disturb my friend, he's dead tired." - Commando
"Fuck you, asshole" - Commando
"Fuck you, asshole" - Commando

"Kill me! I'm here! Come on! Do it now!" - Predator
"Bunch of slack-jawed faggots around here." - Predator
"God damned sexual Tyrannosaurus" - Predator
"What's the matter? The CIA got you pushing too many pencils?" - Predator

"We will miss Angus tonight, we will miss his sword. " - The 13th Warrior
"It's all right, little brother... there are more!" - The 13th Warrior
"Is there a cave?" - The 13th Warrior
"They have been... gnawed upon. " - The 13th Warrior

"They're for the bullet holes, puta!" - Jimmy Jump- King of New York
"Drainage! Drainage! Eli, you boy."- Daniel Plainview- There Will Be Blood

A few off the top, that I like. Passed over foreign films because quoting translations isn't quite the same.
