While Trump obviously could have handled firing Comey better, there is NOTHING wrong with Trump firing Comey. Comey, like any FBI Director, serves at the pleasure of the President and can be fired for any reason. Given how erratic Comey was leading up to this election, it was the right choice. As for the delay, Trump wanted to have his own AG and Deputy AG in place. Given how malicious planted officials like Sally Yates were, it would be reckless to do anything other than that.
President Trump should have asked for Comey's resignation and done that in person. Trump should have had the WH geared up to deal with this story properly from the start. Having Comey find out on TV only serves to belittle the President and alienate the FBI (even if they were unhappy with Comey, they are going to defend him in a situation like that).
Does Erick Erickson want to join forces with "conservatives" like David Frum, David Brooks, Jennifer Rubin, and Evan McMullin? Because that is how you really do fail. Those voices are death to conservative success. Trump has his flaws, for sure, but you will get more out of encouraging him to do the right thing than flailing around everytime the Democrats gin up another shit storm.
And Mr. Trump should absorb and consider some of this criticism. Newt Gingrich is right about this: “At some point, I hope he’s going to learn that taking one extra day, having the entire team lined up. I don’t think he always helps himself. I think 10 percent less Trump would be a hundred percent more effective.”

As AoSHQ linked to, the Bookworm Room notes Craven Cowards at the FBI (and how fish rot from the head first). Comey had to go.
