Answer: Nothing. They would have liked him to do absolutely nothing.
Doing absolutely nothing would fit with their newfound religion of absolutely zero govt intervention, and it would have ensured complete economic collapse, which would have made it easier to defeat Obama in the election.
They did their best to block everything he wanted to do, and they had some success with that method (the economy did not improve as much as it could have), but they will fall short of their ultimate goal, which was simply to defeat Obama.
