What would the consequences be...

What would the results be if we took the U.S. governmental system and had the office of the president active for only the first of the four years of the term it spans, summonable by Congress only for national emergencies afterwards? There remains the question of what to do with the rest of the executive branch, in particular the cabinet. One option would be to have committees of Congress manage those same tasks (or appoint/recall people to do so).
