1. Military Policy. No significant de-escalation of American involvement abroad. No significiant cuts of spending on programs which are irrelevant to the modern world (such as large weapons programs). No merging of services to reduce waste. Continued extra-legal prosecution of war, such as assasinations of people in non combat zones.
2. Immigration. One of those sad cynical things that came out of the GWB white house was using 9/11 as an excuse to crank up enforcement of illegal immigration under DHS ; obviously the real motive was always getting them dirty Mexicans out of our country, but it was politically difficult before 9/11 ; so the anti-Mexicans saw a great opportunity to sneak it in as "protecting our borders from terrorists". Unfortunately this has only gotten worse under Obama, including breaking the veil between INS (ICE) and law enforcement; historically law enforcement had an agreement to not enforce immigration because they wanted immigrants to be able to interact with the police on normal legal issues, but that is now gone.
3. Domestic spying. Only continues to get worse. The FBI was recently given new powers to snoop without warrants; ever since 9/11 the FBI has amped up its monitoring of clearly non-terrorist organizations, claiming that all sorts of groups like environmental activists are "domestic terrorists" (hint : corporate property damage is not "terrorism"), and under Obama that just got massively worse, we're basically back to Hoover levels of sneaky FBI that can now monitor anyone they want without probable cause. Obama continues going around FISA. Obama continues to use "state secrets" and national security defences to make unquestionable arrests. Abroad, "Extraordinary rendition" (aka passing the torture buck) continues.
4. Taxes. No indiciation that Obama will get realistic on this or close any loop holes or the sweetheart deals for various special interests (like financiers). The GWB tax cuts seem to be near permanent at this point, except maybe on the very richest bracket. Amusingly, the majority of Republicans believe that Obama has raised taxes (he hasn't - in fact he cut them for the vast majority of Americans).
5. Health Care. This was a small step in the right direction, but completely lacking the teeth to make it actually work (which requires government control of the outrageous costs of the private medical industry). Sadly "Obamacare" is really just another case of what Dems and Reps have been doing for many years now - creating government laws that gaurantee massive profits to private industries, force you to use private services without controlling their costs. (and it looks like this trend will only get worse in the next N years as there is talk of creating publicly-gauranteed private-profit-takers out of the Mortgage Macs, for social security, etc.; this is just the most beloved form of modern "reform")
6. Accountability. Fools thought some of the lawsuits and investigations into the questionable acts of the GWB administration may have gotten some help or at least been allowed to proceed, but they were not. The opacity of the executive branch started by GWB continues and perhaps has only gotten worse.
7. Funding for basic services. This is one of the saddest things to me and something that often gets lost in the shuffle of all the other disasters. The sort of very basic things that I think everyone except real nut jobs agrees that government should be doing are getting cut because they're the easiest things to cut. Obama is doing nothing about the big costs (Medicare & Defense), but is supporting cuts to "Non-defense discretionary spending". That sounds like just beaurocratic waste, but in fact "non-defense discretionary spending" is the meat of what makes government good and useful - it's education, housing, social programs, etc. And it's even worse at the state level. Here in WA we are cutting ferries, buses, homeless programs, mental illness programs, health care for the poor, animal shelters, etc. you name it, it's being slashed severely.
