But their frustration also arises out of unmet expectations re- garding government performance whether it is government doing too much, too lit- tle, or not doing it well enough.

Confronted with a difficult and complex battle against international terrorism, the United States must not relinquish its traditions of justice and public accountability. Although they were not numbered sequentially until early in the 20th century, the earlier proclamations have been numbered retroactively, and newer ones are assigned a number upon issuance. The question is: How will Gov- ernment function after we terminate? You might cite the need for subsidy on some of those long lines, but if you wanted to concentrate on your corridors and get those really mod- ernized with modern equipment and everything like that, I suspect you could privatize, much as we did Conrail.

Some- times when some of these issues hit critical mass in Washington, the tendency is to form a commission in hopes that the commission may cool it down long enough that the status quo can survive. The proviso was especially urged by Madison, who invoked in support of it the opening words of Article II and the President’s duty to “take care that the laws be faithfully executed.” Succeeding passages of the Chief Justice’s opinion erected on this basis a highly selective account of doctrine and practice regarding the removal power down to the Civil War, which was held to yield the following results: “That article II grants to the President the executive power of the Government, i.e., the general administrative control of those executing the laws, including the power of appointment and removal of executive officers—a conclusion confirmed by his obligation to take care that the laws be faithfully executed; that article II excludes the exercise of legislative power by Congress to provide for appointments and removals, except only as granted therein to Congress in the matter of inferior offices; that Congress is only given power to provide for appointments and removals of inferior officers after it has vested, and on condition that it does vest, their appointment in other authority than the President with the Senate’s consent; that the provisions of the second section of Article II, which blend action by the legislative branch, or by part of it, in the work of the executive, are limitations to be strictly construed and not to be extended by implication; that the President’s power of removal is further established as an incident to his specifically enumerated function of appointment by and with the advice of the Senate, but that such incident does not by implication extend to removals the Senate’s power of checking appointments; and finally that to hold otherwise would make it impossible for the President, in case of political or other differences with the Senate or Congress, to take care that the laws be faithfully executed.”515 The holding in the Myers case boils down to the proposition that the Constitution endows the President with an illimitable power to remove all officers in whose appointment he has participated with the exception of judges of the United States.

But they are great and extraordinary cases, by no means submitted to so limited an organ of the national will as the executive of the United States; and certainly not to be brought by any torture of words, within the right to receive ambassadors.”587 Hamilton, with the case of Genet before him, had taken the contrary position, which history has ratified.
