I think it has been around at least since Reagan but unless you copyright or trademark it, it's not plagiarism.

He should change it to "Restore America". America is still great, just not like pre-Obama

I'm a bit more optimistic and would probably have the slogan "if it ain't broke, don't fix it".

Yes, but on a phrase that is so short like that and anyone might say that phrase to express their opinion it's kind of difficult not to "plagiarize".

Actually, I replied in the wrong thread. I was addressing praet's comment above, that it can't be plagiarized, unless it's been copyrighted or trademarked.
