The key Mr. Obama is that you are no longer 8, and Ayers is as much a terrorist now as he was then. He has continuously said that he does not regret his actions and has refused to ruled out the possibility of repeating those actions. He was a terrorist and still is a terrorist. His current occupation doesn't matter a hill of beans when it comes to whether he was and is a terrorist or not. So in say 10 years if we still haven't killed Bin Laden, it would be perfectly fine for a kid that was only 8 in 2001 to "pall around with terrorists." After all now Bin Laden is a "professor" at madrasahs and training camps.
My question for Obama and his "I was only 8" argument is,
In 2001 when Ayers published his memoir standing by his actions and saying "the question of did we do something that was horrendous, awful? ... I don't think so." and "I feel we didn't do enough", and, when asked if he would "do it all again" was quoted as saying "I don't want to discount the possibility," you were not 8 you were about 40. With Ayers being unrepentant of his actions, and therefore still a terrorist, why have you not strenuously denounced him and avoided any and all contact and communication?
