Say what you want about Rand Paul — and much is indeed said about Rand Paul these days — the GOP's Kentucky Senate nominee does not shy away from controversy.

After a heady tour through Thursday's news cycle — which had Paul first disowning, then hurriedly embracing, some key provisions of the 1964 Civil Rights Act — the tea party favorite and a "small-L" libertarian took to the airwaves Friday to defend the honor of BP, the oil giant involved in the catastrophic oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

On ABC's "Good Morning America" on Friday, Paul called out President Obama for criticizing BP too harshly in public.

"What I don't like from the president's administration is this sort of, 'I'll put my boot heel on the throat of BP,'" Paul said. "I think that sounds really un-American in his criticism of business. I've heard nothing from BP about not paying for the spill. And I think it's part of this sort of blame-game society in the sense that it's always got to be someone's fault instead of the fact that sometimes accidents happen."
