Default Help With A Legal Term ???

what is the correct legal term for when the POTUS signs a bill in public..but then signs another bill without the public fan fare that gives him the authority to only enforce select items in the bill that he signed in public ?

The actual term for the document you refer to is a "Presidential Signing Statement." Whether or not it is a "legal" term (or even a legal document) is a question that is open to some dispute. There is no mention of it in the portions of our Constitution that describe how laws are to be made.

Most people here in Washington call it the "I had my fingers crossed behind my back when I signed it, so I'm not really going to obey or enforce this law" statement.

For an interesting take on this controversial practice by author and columnist John W. Dean, former White House counsel in the Nixon administration, here's a link:

http://writ.news.findlaw.com/dean/20060113.html

Be advised that Mr. Dean was not always the straightest pin in the cushion, so you might want to take that into account as you read his opinions of the Bush White House.

As for me, I find the article to be largely factual.
