Obama to ignore Congress if Iran deal is rejected?

Democratic Congressman Brad Sherman (Calif) fears that if Congress rejects the Iranian nuclear sellout, President Hussein Obama will attempt to implement it anyway.
The quotations from Sherman come from this article in the Hill:
Rep. Brad Sherman (D-Calif.), who has been one of the more skeptical Democrats on the agreement, said that Obama appeared ready to ignore Congress, even if lawmakers vote to kill the deal and then marshal the two-thirds majorities to override a White House veto.
“The main meat of what he said is, ‘If Congress overrides my veto, you do not get a U.S. foreign policy that reflects that vote. What you get is you pass this law and I, as president, will do everything possible to go in the other direction,’” Sherman told reporters off the House floor after the meeting.
“He’s with the deal — he’s not with Congress,” Sherman added. “At least to the fullest extent allowed by law, and possibly beyond what’s allowed by law.”
Sherman suggested that Obama could refuse to enforce the law and could actively seek to undermine congressional action in other countries, if Capitol Hill insists on stymieing the plan.  
He always wanted to be a dictator. What could go wrong?

Congress only has itself to blame because they're the ones who caved to demands that they only be allowed to review it w/o holding on to their lynchpin demand that they could take steps BEYOND the Congressional sanctions already in place. Of course Obama will ignore it. They already gave him an out.
