10 Clint Eastwood campaign slogans

Will Clint Eastwood make Mitt Romney’s day?“I tell you, that could be an electrifying moment,” Fox News anchor Neil Cavuto said Thursday afternoon, after it was revealed that the Hollywood icon will grace the stage later at the Republican National Convention. “I don’t know if Mitt Romney knows any, ‘You’re gonna make my day, punk?’ I have no idea. That doesn’t seem to be Romney’s style.”

But it’s certainly Eastwood’s style. Here are 10 of Eastwood’s best catchphrases — minus the most obvious one — that could easily double as campaign slogans:

1. “Don’t piss down my back and tell me it’s rainin’.” — “The Outlaw Josey Wales” (1976)

2. “Ever notice how sometimes you come across somebody you shouldn’t have f——ed with? Well, I’m that guy.” — “Gran Torino” (2008)

3. “I have strong feelings about gun control. If there’s a gun around, I want to be controlling it.” — “Pink Cadillac” (1989)

4. “If you want a guarantee, buy a toaster.” — “The Rookie” (1990)

5. “In this world, there’s two kinds of people, my friend: those with loaded guns, and those who dig. You dig.” — “The Good, The Bad and The Ugly” (1966)

6. “Tell me, isn’t the sheriff supposed to be courageous, loyal, and above all, honest? I think you people need a new sheriff.” — “For a Few Dollars More” (1965)

7. “Everybody wants results but nobody wants to do what they have to do to get them done.” — “Sudden Impact” (1983)

8. “Now remember, things look bad and it looks like you’re not gonna make it, then you gotta get mean. I mean plumb, mad-dog mean. ‘Cause if you lose your head and you give up then neither live nor win. That’s just the way it is.” — “The Outlaw Josey Wales” (1976)

9. “Most people are afraid of change. But if you look at it as something you can always count on, then it can be a comfort.”— “The Bridges of Madison County” (1995)

10. “Alright. Calm down. Let’s not lose our heads. Everyone remain calm.” — “Absolute
