What was President Obama trying to say with the phrase: "The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam..."

Think of all the great quotes that Presidents have made over the past 225 years. Many of them are things of beauty.  How about this one from our first president:  
"If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter."
George Washington
Now consider this quote from President Barack Obama today at the United Nations:  
President Obama: "The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam."
Really Mr. President?  Any Christian has technically slandered Mohammed... 
 The President also ignored his own advice:  The best response to a video like that is to ignore it.  

Bob Belvedere absolutely nails it with this observation:
Now, tell me, who phrases a sentence that way?
Not someone who believes in Western Civilization, that’s for damn sure.
Congressman Allen West takes a different tack than the President.  

Update: Jeff Goldstein, ever the diplomat, offers his quiet advice: If Romney said during the debates that he’d not give another fucking dime to countries whose officials put hits out on American citizens — and challenged Obama to do the same — the stumbling pablum dribbler would shit his multiculti boxer briefs.  Actually, this would be a game changer for Romney if he challenged Obama on this (he could change a word perhaps).  

President Obama and his Administration, by the way, have refused to denounce this demonstration of "art":
Obama respects the art, not the underlying image being mocked...
