On this, the voters deserve a large part of the blame: for not looking closely (in particular at alternatives other than the biggest opposition party at the moment) and often making decisions on the basis of ridiculous whims (like "I would have a beer with him" or "he would be a nice son-in-law") and then not learning from the mistake the next time.

(The above was partly informed by my recent reading of an op-ed by a satirist I otherwise admire. He admitted outright of voting for Orbán's Fidesz in 2010 to get rid of the bums in power, then proceeded to trash Orbán's actions in government and claimed that he talked of none of this in the election campaign – yet all of those actions could have been foreseen.)
