A quick search shows it has an entry in the book They Never Said It: A Book of Fake Quotes, Misquotes, and Misleading Attributions. Aside from that, it seems to have picked up a great deal of popularity in the past two years. There aren't many results aside from it being reposted in political forums and discussion groups, and none that appear to be academic references for it. I wouldn't put much stock in it being an accurate quote.

As far as saying it could be true based on "what we are currently seeing," I don't see much of a connection between words that may or may not have been said at least 40 years ago and the current state of the country.

By the way, you misspelled "America."
