    No bet has been made by the GOP yet, so there is nothing to call.

    Let's see what the GOP House produces as legislation that includes raising the debt ceiling and then see if the President "calls the bluff."

    So far, the President's men has said not raising the debt ceiling would be "catastrophic." Not sure how that translates into the President calling anyone's bet.

    The President also said he was going to raise taxes on the rich in December. When the GOP called the President's bluff, he folded.

    A little early to be crediting the President with calling any bets just yet.
