A bad time for incumbents

An interesting last week of politics: In PA the Republican candidate blessed by the governor for the Senate nomination got his barn doors blown off.  Meanwhile, the Democratic candidate striving for the Attorney General nomination with the blessing of the Democratic establishment got beat, too.  President Obama's polls are sinking low enough that it seems like charisma-less Romney is drawing even.  Overseas, the French are about to dump President Sarkozy.  It's a lousy time to be an incumbent, or associated with them.

My question: Is it the incumbents who are to blame or is it us for not being patient enough to give them a real chance?
