It's because (and I've stated this many times before) Obama is not a liberal.
He's a moderate-right-authoritarian politician.
People were disappointed when they realized that the supposedly "liberal" candidate they voted for turned out to be another authoritarian-right leaning politician. It's exactly what we don't need right now.
Obama ran on a platform of change and gave the US more of the same. Of course liberals are upset about it.
Funnily enough, many conservatives are still convinced we have a radical leftist in office and that's why things are screwed up.
