Jon Bon Jovi refuses to follow the current trend of using stage performances as a platform to criticise US President George W Bush, because it is "too obvious". The DIE FOR YOU star insists he has no time for the American leader's policies, but he never "bashes Bush" publicly. He says, "I've never gone on stage before the elections or since and slagged off Bush. "Not because I agree with him in any way, out of respect for the office of the President. "It's too obvious to bash Bush. Everybody knows what I think about his policies."
