Are the rotors worn? Worn rotors and new pads will sometimes cause this. The pad sits across the ridges and no matter how much you bleed the system the pedal just wont stiffen up. (See diagram. A - New pads, B - Rotor, C - Ridge)
If you did not install new pads you may also want to check the master cylinder seals. First bleed the system at the pipes that connect to the master. If the rotors are ok, you've bled the master cylinder and the problem persists then replace the seals or the complete master cylinder.

This job is a lot easier with two people but you can do it with 1 if you have to. Have someone sit inside and pump the brakes 3 or 4 times and on the 4th pump hold it to the floor(all the way to the floor and don't let up at all). While they hold it to the floor you take a little end wrench and (Starting on driver side front going to pass. front next then pass. back and so on) you should already have the tire off before pumping brakes. On the caliper(the thing that holds the pads) there is a little bleeder nut Should be near where your brake line goes into the caliper. Now while they hold the pedal down you loosen that nut just a little bit and it should spit a little bit then maybe some fluid will come out maybe not on the first time but it does happen. Just dont leave it open longer than a couple seconds. Just long enough for air to escape then tighten back down. Repeat all those steps about 4 or 5 times for each tire or until brake pedal feels hard to push in. Make sure while your bleeding that you check your master cylinder often if you let it run out u will have to start over from the beginning. Also make sure who ever is holding the pedal do not let up when bleeder valve is open. Same thing. I just wantedn to m
