And who decided?  As far back as I can remember the Republicans have been blue and the Democrats red.  This year "they" swapped the colors  and it was confusing the hell out of me!

  I also noticed that not one talking head made any mention of this, they happily blabbed on about blue democrats and red republicans.  How much coke and soma are they on?

  So that's my political rant for the year.  I give a big WTF to whomever arbitrarily changed the party colors on everyone.

As far as I can remember it has always been blue for Democrats and red for Republicans. Are you sure it was the other way around?

I was at first confused, but I'm Canadian, where red is Liberal and blue is Conservative, and has been that way for as far back as I can remember. Has it always been the opposite in the US?

Yes, it was the other way around -- sometimes.  The history of Red and Blue on electoral maps is actually pretty interesting.
