It's one of the main problem of Danzou's character, when you look at what he's done it seems like he was the one who trully ruled Konoha in all but title for decades. Sandaime just looks like a weak and ineffective leader.
The character was obviously invented in part 2 but I think it would have been better for the story if Sandaime and Danzou were the same person.

You know, now that you mention it...EH GADS, WHAT IS WRONG WITH DANZO???
The same thing that went wrong with all the vilains in the story : the ninja system twisted their flaws to the breaking point of their humanity until they turned into monsters.
Danzou's flashback before his death already showed everything wrong with him, his excessive pride and jealousy, his fear of death, etc. All this was still present in him decades later, just amplified and twisted beyond redemption.
