    I need help

    This is an excerpt from President Obama’s address to the joint session of Congress on February 24, 2009.

    “...We know the country that harnesses the power of clean, renewable energy will lead the 21st century. And yet, it is China that has launched the largest effort in history to make their economy energy efficient. We invented solar technology, but we’ve fallen behind countries like Germany and Japan in producing it. New plug-in hybrids roll off our assembly lines, but they will run on batteries made in Korea.
    Well, I do not accept a future where the jobs and industries of tomorrow take root beyond our borders – and I know you don’t either. It is time for America to lead again...”

    Is there any instance of VP deletion?
    Is there any conceptual metaphor?

    Re: I need help

    This looks like homework, which we don't help you with.

    What is VP deletion?

    I agree that this looks a lot like homework. Also, you have been asked to explain what "VP deletion" means. If this is homework, you need to work it out on your own and submit the answer to your teacher. After you get it back, if you don't understand the teacher's comments or corrections, come back to us to see if we can clarify.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
